How did you get into stand-up comedy?
I started in the most classic way, I am so basic it hurts. I was 24, I had my heart broken by a guy I was in love with who was never in love with me (classic) and moved to Berlin. I wanted to talk about it but its hard to make friends with Germans through Trauma bonding so I figured I could talk it on stage.
Where do you get your inspiration for your material?
Art, like a really good art gallery. (COULD YOU IMAGINE) honestly through my friends and family just watching all of us is enough for me.
How do you deal with hecklers or a tough audience?
Just burst into tears so they feel guilty.
What is the funniest or most memorable moment you've had on stage?
o many, I wish it could be the amazing shows that stick in your head! Like doing Live at The Apollo but no, its always when I fall over or choke on air!
What's been the highlight of your career as a stand-up comedian so far?
Anytime I show up in a new city and my audience is there, that is magic. Just seeing your people and making the all laugh is just so magical and I don't think will ever be boring!
Do you already have an impression of Switzerland and the Swiss, if so what is it?
Clean, it is so clean. I have been once before for shows and it was the most gorgeous place. I cannot wait to come back and try and find the dirty corner of Switzerland because you must have one and I need to see it.
If you had to choose a favourite city, Zurich or Basel?
Let us just avoid this drama and say Winterthur. The true gem of Switzerland.
