Interview with comedian Barnie Duncan

I recently spoke with Barnie Duncan, a comedian from New Zealand, about his latest comedy special Bunny, in which he talks about missing both clubbing and his recently deceased mother. We talked about how grief can feel like waiting for the bass to drop, why we incorporate our grief into our comedy, and what our dead loved ones would think of our work.

Interview with comedian + content creator Steven Ho Death Is Hilarious

This week I spoke with Steven Ho (@steveioe), a first generation Vietnamese-American who started sharing comedic yet brutally honest ER skits online, eventually becoming known as “that ER guy” and launching his own brand tied to that sentiment – MuFKR. Now, with over 13 million followers across TikTok, YouTube and Instagram, Steven creates funny, real, and informative (with a hint of profanity) content related to the ER, providing transparency and comedic relief around a place people often dread. Everything he shares with his audience is through the lens of honest ER experiences, letting them in on the joke no matter how ridiculous, traumatic, or silly.
