Interview with Joshua Seigal

Josh SeigalComedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?

Joshua Seigal: For a few months. I have been doing Spoken Word performance for a few years though, on and off.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Joshua Seigal: I am a poet, primarily writing for and working with children. I am performing the only children’s poetry show at the Fringe this year!

I intersperse these poems with some one-liners, and I encourage audience participation.
