Connections: How has the pandemic impacted the local comedy scene?


It hasn't been a very funny year for comedy. It's an art form that needs an audience, which has been hard to do during the pandemic. Now, local comics are getting back on the stage, and we talk with them about how the scene has survived and what happens next.

Our guests:

  • Shirelle Kinder, local comic
  • Devin Hott, director of communications at the Focus Theater and member of the Focus Theater house team, The Urge
  • Dario Joseph, local comic

You'll hear Scott in various capacities on WXXI either as a reporter, or hosting Morning Edition or All Things Considered.
Megan Mack is the executive producer of "Connections with Evan Dawson" and live/televised engagement programming.
