Description

Hello, and welcome to my podcast. I first went viral on TikTok after telling the story of how I got stuck buying 100 tacos on a first date. Since then, it’s been a wild and crazy ride. I now have millions of eyeballs watching my videos on a daily basis (which is just a terrifying number of eyeballs, honestly).

Each week on my podcast Funny Cuz It’s True, I’ll be sitting down with my favorite creators, friends and comedians to find the stories that have stuck with them and changed their lives in small ways. Not so funny moments that have become funny over time. I want to know how they handled these situations and learned to laugh about them years later. How do they do it? Great question, I’d love to tell you (but you have to listen to find out).

Clog lover, author, and princess of the Midwest Maria Bamford has landed! Put simply, she is a freaking icon, from viral tik tok-worthy character work in her seminal Maria Bamford Show, to her amazing standup career, Maria has always been comedian's favorite comedian. Her new book Sure, I’ll Join Your Cult is an incredible memoir that fully translates her unique voice from the stages to the pages. We discuss the very specific details of her book deal, bag salads and Jon Hamm (who, according to Maria, is one of the larger celebrities). Also, I receive alarming and contradicting reports that a full ice cream sundae is NOT just a lil’ snack.    Apple Books has teamed up with Lemonada Media for an audiobook club. The September pick is Sure, I'll Join Your Cult by actor and comedian Maria Bamford.

Ron Funches doesn't suffer from imposter syndrome, and it makes perfect sense, because he’s a truly talented and joyful stand-up comedian, and he knows it! During our conversation, we delve into his relationship with ambition, the art of comedy, and recognizing his successes. It's no wonder he has unwavering self-belief, he’s done the work. Ron's deep love for pro-wrestling and how it intertwines with his comedy is such an amazing metaphor for self-investment and pursuing our passions. My mind was blown about ten times during our chat, he was sharing such good wisdom with me that at one point I became speechless. Ron's standout quote of the episode was, “I am a vessel here to bring joy and I am the motherfu@king $hit!” Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.

Settle in for a delightful episode featuring the mega-talented Chris Olsen! We plunge headfirst into a discussion about TikTok fame, the beauty of the internet, and our initial meeting on the set of a Meghan Trainor music video. Chris is such a thoughtful and funny human, he should probably have his own podcast by now! We also delve into shamelessly watching our own videos and how I would rather throw my phone across the room and break it, before I let my husband watch me create a piece of content.  Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.

Well well well, if it isn’t skateboarding pioneer, entrepreneur, and total sweetheart Tony Hawk! Tony has been doing some of the biggest and toughest tricks in skateboarding since 1979, and now he’s here! Did you know his first-ever skateboard is in the actual SMITHSONIAN? It’s in history now. Tony dropped in (get it?) to discuss high school, finding community, and what it's like to do something before anyone else thinks it's cool. Also, he tells me about the time a construction company unearthed his hometown skate park. You can probably guess what he did before the security guards arrived!

We sat down with the hilarious standup comedian, actress and writer Punkie Johnson! We had an amazing conversation about the early days in Punkie’s career that ended with her sharing a story about a big comedy breakthrough she just had in Indiana. We also discuss a very specific Craigslist job interview and the science behind fake laughing. The biggest takeaway from this episode is that a giant brownie with two scoops of ice cream and hot fudge can still be a lil’ snack' if you just believe it is.

Hold on to your backpacks people, cuz’ Ellie Kemper is here! Her roles in The Office, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Bridesmaids are nothing short of iconic. We passionately discuss energy hoarding, family and setting boundaries at work. Newsflash: Me and Ellie are deeply on the same page about virtually EVERYTHING.

I appreciate your podcast, it's quite helpful for me. When I have more time, I will undoubtedly research this in greater depth. However, I'm spending a lot of time getting ready for my dissertation. I know now that using this service was the best choice for me https://dissertationguru.net/ All things considered, I could not have prepared myself as effectively.

I Love Elyse's style of comedy, so unsure and self depreciating and people pleasing, mostly because she sounds like the voice running through my head. keep it up Girl, I love it!

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 🙄
