Yes, yes, yes and yes! Thrivetime Nation on today’s show we are interviewing the standup comedian and XM Radio talk show host, Jennifer Fulwiler! Jennifer, welcome onto The Thrivetime Show…how are you ma’am?!
I know that you are seriously building some momentum with your career…but I would like to ask you about what your life was like growing up?
Jen, take me back to your high school prom or high school dances, what is your favorite old school jam or hit song?
Jen, I have heard you say that you listen to hip hop music while driving your kids around. What are a few of your favorite artists or songs?
Jennifer, typically there aren’t many comedians who drive minivans and who have six kids…when did you decide that you wanted to pursue standup comedy and why?
It was out of the blue. I have always loved humor. I thought I should try to stand up and the next night, I went to an open night.
I bombed the first night and every night for months.
I have made a spreadsheet with all of my jokes on it. I recorded every set and especially when I bombed, I would watch the film.
I realized that you can’t do it completely on your own. You have to have other people to bounce things off of.
I understand that you self-produced a comedy tour…I would love to hear about how you made this happen?
When did you first feel like you were truly beginning to gain traction with your career?
I didn’t know until I sold out my tour. My fans had never seen any of my stand up but they bought tickets.
I used my personal credit card and hoped my fans showed up. They bought tickets and I saw that this may have traction.
What is your religion?
I was raised atheist but have been converted into catholicism.
How did you go about becoming a XM radio talk show host?
