Interview with Lea Emery

Lea EmeryComedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up? 

Lea Emery: I’ve been gigging for about a year, I think I’m around 30 gigs in.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Lea Emery: It’s self-deprecation the whole way through– essentially a chronicle of embarrassing stories and social anxieties but exaggerated.

Comedy Blogedy: Which comedians influence your comedy? 

Lea Emery: As far as my set I actually get a lot from TV shows like 30 Rock and Miranda, or at least like to think I have a similar style. Comedians that I love at the minute are Louis CK and have been having a second love of George Carlin- which means spending way too much time on Youtube.
