At the recent American Humanist Association conference in Chicago, I spoke with Leighann Lord, a comedian and co-host of the StarTalk podcast with Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Lord has performed stand-up on Comedy Central and HBO, has won several awards for her work, and written books including Dict Jokes and Real Women Do It Standing Up.
I spoke with her about how she went from a corporate job to a comedy stage, why performing at colleges has become tougher for comedians, and why unique outreach to African American atheists is worthwhile.
