Ground Up 036
LAUGH IT OFF
W/ ALEXIS WILKINSON
Getting started in comedy
& standing up for what you believe in.
Alexis Wilkinson has written for HBO’s VEEP & FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. She initially pursued a degree as a biomedical engineer but switched course to pursue comedy. The jump has paid off.
In our conversation we discuss political correctness, the importance of having a fallback plan, dick jokes & the art of bullshitting. We also get real about money & what it takes to be happy.
"My mom always said, 'Money doesn't buy happiness but poverty doesn't buy anything.'"
This episode is absolutely off the rails in the best way possible. Minutes upon entering my house Alexis called me a cunt (she said it in an endearing way... you had to be there). Our conversation bounces back & forth from her ground up story to odd subjects that seem to appear out of thin air. I think you'll enjoy it.
