Hilarious comic and fellow National Park enthusiast, Reena Calm joins me for a great chat. Reena is a true road dog; I don’t know anyone who hustles harder. From Connecticut to Chicago to Alaska and everywhere in between, Reena is CONSTANTLY on the road. We talk about the random and crazy, observations you find on long car rides, photography, and hitting National Parks and we chat about her upcoming album!
Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia. A regular performer in comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters all over the country, Pat has been a choice opener for Sebastian Maniscalco, Tom Segura, and Dan Cummins. He recorded his first album Biggest Thing in 2013, and his latest album Heard Enough Yesterday, hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. Both can be heard on iTunes, Amazon, and Pandora.
Reena Calm was made in Israel and raised near Boston. Obsessed with comedy she moved to Chicago and has made a name for herself as a favorite in one of the best comedy cities in the world. She’s become one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest and is now a nationally touring headliner. Reena’s material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate, pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices.
Speaking of questionable choices, she is currently the only woman in America who lives on the road as a full-time stand-up comedian. Living out of a tricked-out Prius, this pun-slinger travels the country on her signature #Calmedy tours. She’s on a mission to make people laugh in all 50 States (just a few left to go).
She’s opened for legends like Arsenio Hall, Laurie Kilmartin, and Eddie Pepitone, to name a few. Reena has been a frequent guest on WGN Radio, was on the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and was named Comic of The Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show. She recently recorded her first “CALMEDY” album with Helium Comedy Records, to be released later this year.
Check out her book “Once A Pun A Time…Legend of a Sighs Queen” on Amazon. Reena’s been called “a one-woman punk band of a comedian” by Jeff Bailey, “everything comedy should be” by Sam Tallent, one of “the best independent comics in the country” by Clearwater Comedy, “also terrific” by the Chicago Tribune, and “NOT a disappointment” by her mother. She hopes to do a show in your town soon and would love to sleep in your finest parking lot. Follow her on Instagram for pictures of her #ViewnitedStates travels @ReenaCalm.
