PODCAST EPISODE (AUDIO) & PODCAST EPISODE (VIDEO)
Today we are talking to lovable Chicago goofball, Samantha Berkman. I met Sam at a showcase out of the Lincoln Tap just over three years ago, where she invited me to take pictures at the first ever CAMP show. We became fast friends and she saved my number in her phone as “Baldy McFuckface.” CAMP is now a successful comedy showcase that features top-shelf comedians. Aside from her beloved weekly show, Sam is also a former writer for the AV Club television show, and a brilliant performer.
about performance review:
Performance Revue is a Chicago-based show that gets to the heart of an artist’s inspiration and process. Each week, you’ll meet a performer, hear (and watch) their set, and indulge in an in-depth discussion about how their act has been developed. If you’ve ever wondered what goes on in the head of a veteran comedian, musician, or actor, this show is for you.
We sit down with Samantha Berkman and Tessa Orzech from Camp: A Comedy Show to talk about the spectrum of open mics to showcases, cultivating a welcome audience, knowing when to set guidelines in a way that builds community, and guess which cat falls asleep in their own neck fat?
