Atsuko Okatsuka once did stand-up during an earthquake – but that’s not even the craziest thing that’s happened in her life. Atsuko talks to me about turning the things that made her feel different as a kid into superpowers. Plus, she explains why she thinks comedy is a service, getting kicked out of church choir, and her upcoming HBO special “The Intruder.” Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Stay up to date with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @LemonadaMedia.  Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

On this special episode, Penn Badgley interviews me on his new podcast Podcrushed! Podcrushed explores the heartbreak, anxiety and self-discovery of being a teenager. I sat down with Penn and his co-hosts Nava and Sophie and shared the real story behind the taco date, how I knew Jonas was different from all the other men I dated, and what I would say to ‘12-year-old Elyse’ today.

When I think about joy, nobody embodies it better than Jonathan Van Ness. From the perfect oat milk latte to gymnastics, JVN shares what’s bringing them happiness – and how it gives them confidence. We also have a wild conversation about their very first vodka-drinking, mullet-wearing client and their fangirl moment with Simone Biles.    Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.    Stay up to date with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @LemonadaMedia.    Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

Kaitlyn is my good friend and appeared on the Bachelor as a contestant before starring as a Bachelorette herself. Believe it or not, she was the very first person I interviewed for this podcast, so you might be able to hear just how nervous I was. We talk about those kinds of first loves you never really forget – for good and for bad. It’s basically an unexpected therapy session. Plus, we take some wisdom from the Kardashians.

I thought I peaked when they played my song “Whispers in the Breakroom” on their podcast. But oh no. It just got better. Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer (aaaaah!!!), of Office Ladies, are my very special guests this week. They tell me about becoming friends over a partition, the hard years before their big break, and why they won’t stop talking about their time on “The Office.” Plus, Jenna shares a hot tip on how to meet celebrities at fancy events.

I grew up watching Kevin Nealon on SNL, and now he’s on my podcast. Are you joking??? Along with being an incredible comedian, Kevin tells me about his lifelong passion for drawing. His new book “I Exaggerate: My Brushes with Fame” features stories about celebrities he’s met, accompanied by caricatures he’s drawn of them. Kevin even gives me a peek at what my caricature would look like. Plus, he shares the origins of Hans & Franz and why his current show might be the most “breathtaking” work he’s ever done.

If my life was a musical comedy, I'd ask Rachel Bloom to write, direct, AND star in it. The actress, singer/songwriter, and comedian tells me about her quest to make musical comedy actually funny (like, literally laugh-out-loud funny), dealing with ADHD, and what it’s like being a female comedian.

There are an unbelievable amount of things actor Tristen Winger and I have in common – our love for music, our interest in engineering, our early graduation from high school, and losing our cool in front of our biggest idols. But something that really stuck out to me when I talked to the "Insecure" and "So Help Me Todd" actor was his ability to make his dreams come true through manifestation.  Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Stay up to date with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @LemonadaMedia.  Joining Lemonada Premium is a great way to support our show and get bonus content.

I did a podcast with my childhood crush and favorite member of NSYNC, and only freaked out a few times. The incredible Lance Bass tells me about growing up while performing with NSYNC. As a closeted teen, Lance had to hide a lot about himself. But no longer – Lance lives proudly as his true self with his husband and two children. Plus, he invites me to Disney World and all I can think about is eating a turkey leg.

Legendary director, writer, and actor Paul Feig joins me for our very first episode. Note to listeners: he’s in a seven-piece suit, and I’m in sweatpants. It’s great. You'll hear all about my first kiss, and Paul's own awkward romances (like the ones that inspired his show "Freaks and Geeks”). Plus, Paul shares his experiences from “The Office.” I learn the creative process doesn’t really get easier, even after decades in the industry.

You may recognize my face from the Internet. Maybe you’ve heard my stories about the funny but unbelievable things that have happened to me. Maybe you can relate? (If you can’t relate, just say you do so I feel better.) Well, I have a new podcast. It’s called Funny Cuz It’s True. It has 100% less emojis than my stories usually do, but I get to talk to other comedians, pop culture icons, and people I find really funny, and it’s pretty wild! It’ll be out October 5, brought to you by Powderkeg Media and Lemonada Media.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

woahhh 👌🏻 I literally loved your podcast! It's the first episode that I listened to. While I was listening to this, I was like: uhhh😩 I wish I could be part of this.. I think it would be hilarious because I'm not an American and my accent would be fun for your fans😅😂. I don't know why am I saying this.. seriously! it's kinda odd for a introverted person to say and suggest such things 🙄

I love this podcast sooooo much!! Thank you Elyse for being so vulnerable and willing to share yourself and those cringey moments with such honesty and openness. I will feel less alone when recalling those embarrassing moments that still haunt me 30 years after they occurred (it usually happens just before falling asleep... I am jolted fully awake by some horrifying memory from highschool and transported back in time to experience the entire moment all over again 😂)

Awesome. I love how you embody exactly the same nervousness and anxiety that goes on in my mind daily. Love to see you conquering it with such wonderful awkwardness in a spectacular fashion. Looking forward to hearing each and every one. I'm here for the journey!!
