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).

    One of My Faves: Stressing in My Flesh Suit (with Mike Birbiglia)

    This week, we're revisiting my interview with Mike Birbiglia. He talks about his new Broadway show “The Old Man and The Pool,” and how he makes a show about death and mortality funny. Mike gets into his creative process around joke writing, like how he got underneath the meaning behind a joke about his car accident and a drunk driver, and also tells me why he thinks performing comedy is like stripping.

    This week, we're revisiting my interview with Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer of The Office Ladies. I thought I peaked when they played my song “Whispers in the Breakroom” on their podcast. But oh no. It just got better. 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.

    One of My Faves: Starting a TikTok Trend (with Moses Storm)

    This week, we're revisiting my interview with Moses Storm. Moses Storm has led a crazy life. The comedian and actor tells me about growing up in his family’s “failed” cult, living in a bus with his five siblings, and eventually meeting his hero Conan O’Brien on a rooftop that smelled like tapas. We also talk about the making of his first comedy special, “Trash White,” which has his fingerprints all over it – literally.

    One of My Faves: Putting Myself in Timeout (with Aparna Nancherla)

Wow…

Elyse is, hands-down, the best human…so honest, so loving, so funny; she says what many think, but never say, and normalizes the neurotypical. For the first time in almost 5 years on earth, I don’t feel “alone” in my quirky thoughts.

Authentic and amazing

I love Elyse Myers. She is so funny and I’ve been watching her on Insta and now I get to listen to her pod!!! I’m so excited and can’t wait to go through them all! She’s so wonderfully authentic and lets herself just be who she is. It’s quite inspiring. I love her awkward stories, they are callbacks to all of my own awkward moments. It’s just lovely.

Veekaybeeeee ,
