Today, Matt welcomes Alissa May Atkinson, a comedian and bartender hailing from Brooklyn, NY. A bar manager at Precious Metal, Alissa (along with her comedy partner Lauren Vino) produces and hosts monthly comedy shows called Midd Riff Comedy, which are held at Precious Metal on the first Friday of every month. With Matt, Alissa chats about how she got started in comedy and what inspires her joke writing. They also chat about the origin of Midd Riff Comedy and how bartending (doubling as a form of entertainment) preps her for performing. And so, from her fascination with the comedic process to her plans for the future, here’s presenting Matt Storm and Alissa May Atkinson.
