Ep.182-Comedian Lianna Carrera and I examine the argument that it's hard for comedians to do stand-up in a politically correct world, how a comedian's dating life can work its way into their comedy, the importance of diversity in the entertainment industry both in front of and behind the camera, and her new show 'The Q Agenda'. This episode's Consent Corner is from Chapter 5 of my book, The Consent Guidebook ( www.TheConsentGuidebook.com ) and gives examples on how to hold others accountable. About Lianna: Lianna grew up as the gay kid of a Southern Baptist Minister and her mother and brothers are Deaf. This background propels her to authentically maneuver, create, and connect with a wide array of audiences that have two things in common: the belief that we are more alike than we aren't and the desire to laugh. The result is a rare find both as a comedian and as a human being. Lianna has toured as a professional stand-up comedian for a decade. She has developed original concepts (www.boyishontv.com) and just sold her first film to a production company. She recently recorded a stand-up comedy special with Seed&Spark as one of comedy’s six rising stars in Los Angeles, and landed her first interview on NPR’s The Frame. She is currently one of the hosts of ‘The Q Agenda’ on LATV. www.LiannaCarrera.com
