Episode 32: Squirting And Being Vulnerable Ft. Paige Polesnak

You Can't Laugh At That

What is taboo and why isn't it okay to talk about it? Pittsburgh comedian Paige Polesnak joins David and Steve to break down the hilarious bit that got her banned from Crackers Comedy Club in Indianapolis. While most people are hesitant about getting personal and showing their vulnerable sides, comedians are willing to share their deepest, grossest secrets, taking something "taboo," and making it okay to talk about. Like squirting. In this episode, we discuss: -Getting personal onstage -Paige's source for her personal material -Mining material from our cringeworthy high school moments -The joke that got Paige banned from a comedy club -How going to a Catholic school impacts sexuality -The one-sided intimacy of performing stand-up -Paige realizes that she may be an asshole -Performing a joke about an ex's dead parent in front of that ex -Using AirDrop as part of your performance (and to creep on hot guys at coffee shops) -The rule of 3s -The comedy books Paige has read (and the story of the creep who gave her one of them) -The societal construct of what's taboo -Double standards of club bookers when male comics talk about explicit content vs. when female comics do -How Whitney Cummings and Nikki Glaser approach squirting in their own stand-up specials -Making it okay and empowering to be insecure -Being shamed for something awesome -Why Paige transitioned from music to comedy -And more!

Hang in there with us this episode, Tanner may have (read: most definitely) had a few too many beers the night before recording this episode.

But they also have Pittsburgh comedians Paige Polesnak & Kayleigh Dumas swing by the studio to talk with us about various comedy scenes, dating, working as a creative professional, and bad jobs of yesteryear.
