Shahera Hyatt stopped by for Episode 121. Shahera is a stand-up comedian and the Project Director of the California Homeless Youth Project.
Shahera and I chat about what the hell goes on in the circles comedians form with other comedians before a show starts; how inspired her to start pursuing stand-up; why crying at your desk while listening to a Michael McDonald song is so funny; why jokes about killing hookers need to go away; and the reasons why Sacramento needs to change its policies for homeless people in our community.
Thank you for listening, Listeners, and thank you for sharing, Sharers, to my conversation with Shahera Hyatt. Be sure to follow Shahera on Twitter and Instagram. Shahera has upcoming shows at the Sac Comedy Spot, Oak Park Brewing Company, and On The Y.
