E128. Candice Thompson Thinks Everyone’s Lost Their Minds
Walk-Ins Welcome with Bridget Phetasy
Candice Thompson is a comedian, writer, actor and host of the podcast Nosy Neighbors which breaks down the most absurd neighborhood app posts of the week. She and Bridget discuss how everybody wants to label you so they know what to think about you, why they don’t trust groups, their paths to stand-up comedy, their worst comedy bomb experiences, why hemp is the buffalo of plants, normalizing knife fights, and why people are so staunch in their defense a celebrity they’ve never met. Candice shares her experience being a light skinned black girl, and the complexities of being mixed race in a country obsessed with race, her exploration of nutrition and spirituality, and why she got kicked out of a wedding for a stand-up set. It’s a hilarious conversation that goes from lentils to racism to fat shaming, why our bodies are miracles, people who take pride in their victimhood, and the etiquette of throwing away dog poop.
Candice Thompson has managed to thrive, as much as you can, in quarantine. She has been writing on The Netflix Afterparty, recording multiple podcasts, and manifesting her home to be as prepared for this time and the potential dystopian future. TCB's Jake Kroeger and Candice have quite the time figuring out what they're going to do in the not so distant future as the world keeps sinking into chaos (and yes, we talk aliens too). Also, "hot" takes on Rutherford Falls and the possibility of content consumption sinking after the pandemic ends.Follow Candice @jokesbycandice and listen to The Struggle and look out for her new Spotify podcast, Noisy Neighbors.The Comedy Bureau @thecomedybureau across platforms and please, please support TCB via GoFundMe, Patreon, or on Venmo (@jakekroeger).Produced by Jake KroegerMusic by Brian GranilloArtwork by Andrew Delman and KT
