Sophie Buddle has been a performing stand-up comedy since she was only 15, and after 9 years of grinding it out at open mics and comedy shows, she's now a writer for CBC's sketch comedy series, This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Oh yes, and her boyfriend also landed the same writing job at the same time in the same place. So things are going well. In this episode, Sophie and Mica discuss how she landed the gig, what it's like to be in a writer's room in 2018, and why the Louis CK drama has affected her very personally. Also covered: are comedians REALLY the worst people to date? And what escapist TV shows does Sophie recommend we indulge in? All this and more in this sweet treat of an audio program!
