Interview with Aisha Alfa

Aisha AlfaComedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up? 

Aisha Alfa: I have been doing stand up for 2 years–my anniversary was April 24th 2012

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Aisha Alfa: My comedy is energetic, very visual and a bit silly. In the end I hope people describe my comedy as simply…FUNNY!

Comedy Blogedy: Which comedians influence your comedy?

Aisha Alfa: I love Gina Yashere, Mitch Hedberg, Mark Forward, Dominique and a local Winnipegger comedian named Matt Nightingale! I’m not sure if there is a particular comedian who influences me, but one thing I’ve learned is that everyone has their own brand of funny and I you try to emulate someone else’s brand it just comes off as awkward and insincere. I’ve realized that the things I find funny, strange or ridiculous are what I need to be talking about on stage otherwise the audience won’t feel what I’m saying.
