There are few careers that strike as much fear in our parents' hearts as when we say we want to "work in entertainment." Assuming you have the talent chops, a career in showbiz often comes down to a combination of sheer luck and timing. On this episode of Girlboss Radio, Sophia chats with Sasheer Zamata, who has not just broken into entertainment—but into the notoriously difficult world of comedy. Tune in to hear how Sasheer discovered comedy and standup after college, why she decided to study at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, and how she developed the confidence to start her own projects when no one else would bite. You can also hear Sasheer on her own podcast, "Best Friends with Nicole Byer and Sasheer Zamata."
