Comedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?
Elena Kombou: I started stand up at the end of October 2010, so about one year and two months. It’s something I wanted to do for ages and I started writing material when I was in my teens but was too nervous and too worried that I wouldn’t get any laughs and then that would ruin comedy for me forever so I kept putting it off. It was going to the Edinburgh Festival last year that gave me the kick I needed to do it. I enjoyed the festival but wanted to be more than just a member of audience and promised myself that the next year I’d be there as a performer.
