Our guest this week, Katherine Blanford is an Atlanta-based comedian who recently made her television debut on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. She has opened for many top-notchers including Jeff Foxworthy, David Spade, and Ron White. In this conversation, we talk about how she has built her career as a performer and gets better and better at her craft.


  • When did she get serious about comedy?
  • “Impossible has a skillset”--What skill did she have to develop to get to where she is?
  • Resilience as an artist and detaching from the outcome
  • The business side of performing and her advice for anyone just starting out.
  • Coming up with ideas & getting out of the rut of “I don't know what to say”
