5 questions with Los Angeles comedian Pamela Walt

Pamela Walt is a comedian from Los Angeles, who will be in Louisville for a show at Aloft Louisville Downtown.

Pamela has toured across the country, including a pre-pandemic tour with comedian and writer Lisa Curry.

Pamela will close out the Thursday Comedy Showcase on June 24 at 7:30 p.m. Other comics on the show include Andrew Rudick of Cincinnati and Kyle Kemper of Dayton, Ohio.

Tickets to the show are free and are available here.

Pamela recently took the time to answer 5 Questions from Louisville Laughs.

Live comedy is finally back in Los Angeles. What is that like?

It is still a bit of a mystery as to what shows survived and are coming back. I’ve done a few spots in LA so far. A lot of shows have been selling out. People are really just so happy to go out again.

The audiences are actually excited to be there, which prior to the pandemic was not always the case in LA. Sometimes you’d just get people sitting with their arms crossed in the front row not wanting to laugh.

(Shout out to the late great Brody Stevens. … He was the best at making these folks crack.)

 Right now it feels more like NYC audiences in LA though. People who need and want to laugh and are happy to be there. (If you’re an LA audience member reading this, you’re amazing and always have been.)

Pamela Walt

You did some Zoom comedy shows during Covid. How was virtual comedy?

I sat out virtual shows at first and used the time in quarantine to connect with myself. I got bored of that quickly and eventually did Zoom shows.

Zoom was challenging as a lot of people had their cameras and sound off or they forget they didn’t and yelled at their partner and disrupted the show. A lot of awkwardness, especially with internet connections messing with timing. It’s not really the same energy as a live show.

I did like how it was more accessible and anyone in the world could attend. That part was incredible. I also liked that I could wear sweatpants. 

How long have you been in LA and what jobs have you held to support your comedy career?

I moved to LA right out of college, so either a long time or just yesterday depending on who you ask. I’ve lived there longer than I’ve done comedy and I’ve done comedy over a decade, and I better not say more in case anyone reading this is good at math.

I’ve worked a lot in TV, film and theater doing costume work over the years as well as the little odd jobs that come with living in LA.

There was one job I remember where I was sewing dresses for a lady on Craigslist for like $1.70 an hour.

Or the time I had to try to sell people shots of mixed drinks at a bar by the beach. Not whiskey shots. We’re talking like shots of White Russians and Margaritas. Nobody wanted that. Talk about having to try to win a crowd over. 

What’s your comedy horror story?

There are so many, it’s hard to choose. One show that always comes to mind though was doing a spot in a loud nightclub. They made the middle of the dance floor the “stage” (there was no stage) and the DJ didn’t stop playing.

Absolutely no one listened and people were dancing all around the comics. Everyone kept trying though as if it was normal. It felt like the myth of Sisyphus.

Also just being on the road and having to sleep in roach motels or comic’s basements. (Motels are sometimes safer.) There’s something sort of oddly romantic about all of that in a beat poet kind of way. Also though, I’d rather be in a Four Seasons. 

What is bringing you to Louisville? 

I have family here that I’m excited to see after this long year. I’m also looking forward to seeing what comedy is like in Louisville. And cicadas. (Addendum: I immediately regret wanting to see cicadas.)

6 questions with Louisville comedian Creig Ewing

Creig Ewing / Photo by Lou Tingle

Creig Ewing is a comedian and show producer from Louisville, Ky.

He is the force behind Louisville Laughs, putting on shows at Aloft Louisville Downtown and scheduling the Wednesday night Laughs in the Lounge open mic at The Caravan Comedy Club.

With businesses opening up, Louisville Laughs is adding Sunday shows at Planet of the Tapes, The Bard’s Town, an open mic at Ten20 Craft Brewery and more announcements to come.

The initial Planet of the Tapes Second Sunday Showcase is June 13 at 7:30 p.m. featuring nationally touring comedian Tim Northern. Tickets are available here.

And as a reward for reading this far, you can use the Promo Code PLANET to get $3 off general admission tickets for Sunday’s show, which are regularly $8.

Creig recently put off his afternoon nap to answer questions he asked himself.

Louisville Laughs: What made you decide to start putting on shows?

Creig Ewing: Who else was going to book me? Plus, I thought I would get my bar tab covered. I was wrong. 

What is the best feeling in comedy?

A full room of people enjoying themselves and people laughing at a new joke you’re trying out are the best feelings. … So I am told.

What’s the most frustrating part about booking shows?

People like to wait until the day of the show to buy tickets. So it’s nerve-wracking to not know if you’re going to be performing in front of six or 60 people.

Tim Northern is on Sunday’s show at Planet of the Tapes. How do you know Tim?

When I started in comedy, one of the first opportunities I got was to perform in The Tim Northern Comedy Festival. Tim, who has been doing comedy for years and been on network TV, is very encouraging to the Louisville comedy scene. The festival, to him, was all about supporting and showcasing Louisville comics.

The next year I started working with Tim and others to put on the festival and produce shows and open mics. Covid put everything on hiatus, but we are back putting on shows and people are really ready for comedy.

Tim also is one of those comics who has really smart jokes that I wish I had written.

What tips do you have for new comics wanting to get stage time?

Go to open mics and work on your material. You only get better by being on stage. Don’t fall in love with your jokes. Always be willing to tighten them, rework them or add tags.

Be a good audience member. If you’re at an open mic, stay to listen to the other comics. Laugh. Network a little after.

Go to comedy shows to support others. If someone offers you a spot, don’t say you can do 20 minutes if you only have five. Be reliable.

Also, watch what you put on social media. If you seem like a jerk on your Facebook page, who is going to want to put you on a show?

How do you write a joke?

Take something that is true and lie about it.

Sometimes people have a true story that is funny, and they feel compelled to tell the whole story. Shorten it. Get to the funny parts. Embellish. Go over the top.

A five-minute story with a punchline at the end is going to lose the audience before you get to the punchline.

When someone tells a long stories with no laughs, Tim Northern says, “That guy was up there telling truths.”
