Adrienne Iapalucci’s First Time
When I moved to Hoboken, NJ in 2011 to tackle comedy in NYC, Adrienne Iapalucci was one of the few comics to take me under her wing and show me around the scene. Since then, she’s been featured on The Degenerates on Netflix, The Best of Netlfix Stand-Up 2020 and she was my first friend to perform on David Letterman. Born and raied in The Bronx, Adrienne’s mother dabbled in stand-up and Adrienne dreamed of being on Saturday Night Live, but then found herself doing stand-up as well. In this episode, we share some horror stories from the road, talk a lot about bombing, why the best-paying gigs are usually the worst shows and why I couldn’t make it work NYC.
