Stand-up comic & writer Sierra Katow joins Jerry on Episode 084 to share her journey as a comic from going to her very first open mic during high school, shining on the national TV stage during college, and how she has pursued her love of telling jokes since then through comedy and writing. Check her out at www.SierraKatow.com
We celebrate Sierra's successful comedy career and her deep run on NBC's Last Comic Standing and writer for HBO Max's Close Enough.
We support her work and its many creative outlets: her comedy videos, social media, and podcast: Stay Podsitive!
We are inspired by her desire to write her own story and legacy through telling jokes and storytelling.
