If you’ve been following me on Instagram or get my newsletter, you might know that I recently took stand up comedy classes here in NYC at Manhattan Comedy School. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. It scared the heck out of me...so naturally, I had to try it. My next performance is TONIGHT at Gotham Comedy Club at 7pm, actually. And so I thought who better to have on So Money today than my comedy school teacher, comic Karen Bergreen.
Over the past decade, Karen has been keeping audiences laughing all across the country. She’s been on Comedy Central, the Oxygen Network, VH1, The View, and LIVE at Gotham.
She’s also an author of two fiction books, Perfect is Overrated and Following Polly: A Novel. She and I talk about the highs and lows of being a female stand up comic, growing up in New York City when people *didn’t* want to be labeled as “rich.”..and Karen’s transition to comedy...She graduated from Harvard, and went on to law school. How and why she pivoted is where we begin the conversation...
