Smack Dab in the Middle of Funny - Comedian/Writer Robby Hoffman
Play • 1 hr 16 min

Small ex-Chasidic queer Jewish stand-up comedian and Emmy Award-winning writer Robby Hoffman reveals her comedy journey, how even as a financial auditor, it was always a part of who she was as a person. And Robby leads a crucial and enlightening discussion about the past, present and future roles of women in comedy, and the still-present stereotype that women aren’t as funny as men. Also joining the show this week is MouthMedia Network Intern Alexi Bolden, recently named one of four Saturday Night Live scholars, and will be granted an audition for the upcoming cast of SNL. The gang also discusses too much cauliflower, cactus candy in a condom wrapper, and a round of the improv game of The Meh News covers live news stories on cat vomit in an overcrowded AirBNB and a Times Square sandwich board full of errors. Robby was just named one of Vulture's Top Comedians to Watch in 2020, one of Comedy Central's UP NEXT comedians, and on Conan O’Brien’s Comics to Watch list. She has performed numerous times at the Montreal Just for Laughs festival and was a headliner for the New York Comedy Festival. In 2019, she recorded her first one-hour stand up special for Just for Laughs, "I’m Nervous" in Toronto, available on CraveTV. Robby is also a notable TV writer, having written on The Chris Gethard Show (TruTV), Workin' Moms (Netflix), and Baroness Von Sketch Show (IFC). In 2019, Robby won a Daytime Emmy Award for her writing work on Odd Squad (PBS).
