Rebel Radio Ep. 8: Kira Soltanovich - Why Is Comedy Like Sex?
Rebel Radio is a weekly podcast, hosted by your humble servant, focused on exploring the relationship between art and business in underground culture. Through interviews with creative entrepreneurs who have shaped the roots and future of the underground, we uncover what it takes to build and sustain a career out of making art. In partnership with EDM.com, Rebel Radio aims provides insights into the essence of entrepreneurship, of taking control of one’s own destiny, and of building businesses and legacies against all odds.
Kira Soltanovich is my guest this week, and she is hilarious. Good thing too because she’s a comedian.
Maybe you saw her on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (she played the “photo booth” for seven years), or maybe on Girls Behaving Badly. Or maybe you have never seen her at all. How would we know? Me? I went to high school with her and just remember her being kinda fine and kinda loud.
Besides reminiscing, we have a great conversation about how she pushed through after bombing consistently when she was getting started, how she finds inspiration everywhere she looks, and how she supports her friends, even though they don’t always support her.
Tune in, laugh, cry, sneeze. Okay don’t sneeze.
