Emergency medicine isn’t usually a laughing matter... unless you’re Stefania Licari.

Stefania spent years training and excelling through medical school to become a doctor, only to decide to pursue her dream of acting and comedy.

Today, this exceptional woman is finding a way to do both -- sometimes with hilarious results. This week, Kristin talks with Stefania about her multi-faceted career, life as an Italian in the UK post-Brexit, what it's (still) like to be a (female) doctor in 2022, and her new solo show, Medico, currently on at the Museum of Comedy in London.
