Comedy: No place for a lady

April Macie looks more like an old-fashioned pin-up than a feisty comedian with a hip pocket full of wiener jokes — but that’s exactly what she is. She’s got a quick wit, a sharp tongue and some of the funniest stories you’ve ever heard out of a former cheerleader. The Pennsylvania native got her big break when she was a finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and has gone on to appear on “The Howard Stern Show,” E! and the Grand Ole Opry of stand-up comedy, “The Bob & Tom Show.”

LEO: Have you been to Louisville before?
April Macie: I did a breast cancer benefit there once, but I’ve never performed in a club there before.

LEO: As a newbie, be careful — our bars are open until 4 a.m.
AM: Are they? Oh, God. I better not bring my mom then; she can’t hang to last call. She’s more of a “get a 30-pack of Keystone Light and paint pictures of Michael Bolton in the basement” kind of girl.

LEO: Was it a pretty conservative Pennsylvania upbringing?
AM: Uh, not very conservative, no; Pennsylvania is really non-conservative.

LEO: I just watch “Amish Mafia” and assume all Pennsylvania is like that.
AM: (laughs) Oh no, that’s like two hours away in a small village.

LEO: What kind of comedy excites you?
AM: I’m a huge fan of comedy. But I think I prefer comics who are more entertainers than just straight joke tellers. I want a little razzle-dazzle for my entertainment dollar. And I love the edgier comics who are at least attempting to make some sort of social commentary, as opposed to a dude who is just talking about cookies.

LEO: You don’t like cookies?
AM: It’s just not my cup of tea when it comes to comedy. If you have a mouthpiece, you should attempt to say something.

LEO: Do you agree with the old formula of tragedy + time = comedy?
AM: Well, that’s my formula, and it seems to be working for me. I can’t speak for everybody else, but I assume if somebody had homemade pudding in their fridge growing up, they probably aren’t that funny.

LEO: Are all comedians generally unhappy people?
AM: I think it takes a certain level of damage to travel around and seek validation from strangers in a nightclub. That’s not a “normal person” thing to wanna do.

LEO: Worst place you’ve ever played?
AM: I worked this place in Texas that was a front for a meth ring … I did not know that at the time. They were paying me, like, three times what I was used to making, and I didn’t understand. It was a weird, glorified pile of shit in a dirt parking lot, and it would be me and 12 Mexican dudes straight off an oil rig … I would calculate the ticket price and it didn’t make sense how they were paying me. Now I think the dude is serving two life sentences for running a meth ring. That wasn’t so great; it was, like, “This is no place for a lady.”

LEO: No place for a lady, but the perfect place for a comic.
AM: Exactly.

I want to describe something

By merveceylan
I want to describe something about my project and it has very different name which ise-ticaret paketleri and It has no meaning. It is very difficult to understand. There are some companies like this. For instance e-ticaret sitesi kurmak and eticaret is the best one. This e-ticaret sitesi fiyatları company sells some web products. For example:" web design, e-commerce, SEO, advertising projects" ext. So online satış sitesi kurmak means very strange. satış sitesi kurmak and alışveriş sitesi kurmak so you can search it on Google. When you write Netgir on Google, There are lots of results like online alışveriş sitesi kurmak and hazır e-ticaret sitesi so finally if you want to learn something about the e-ticaret you have to understand the meaning of the eticaret. Thank you so much.
