Despite being a Yankees fan, Meghan Hanley and I still manage to have a great conversation about her career and all things comedy. From watching The Muppets and Chris Rock to comedy classes to cruise ships, we discuss her interest in comedy that eventually led to her getting on stage and where it’s taken her. As always, I ask for a hell-gig story and she did not disappoint. Be on the lookout for her special when it gets released later this year! Really fun chat; give it a listen!
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.
MEGHAN HANLEY, fresh off her feature in Forbes Magazine, is a Brooklyn-based, internationally touring stand-up comedian, who has appeared on AXSTV’s “Gotham Comedy Live,” The MSG Network, DreamsTV, Fox’s “Laughs” and “Red Eye.” Throughout the pandemic, Meghan zoomed from her apartment for private events, fundraisers, and corporate clients, including The NFL, Bank of America, The Girl Scouts, Intel, Samsung, and ZeniMax Online Studios. While at home, she also teamed up with Standup2corona.org, a non-profit, that kept comedians at work, while putting food into the food bank, through Feeding America. In November 2021, she filmed a “Dry Bar” Comedy Special, with a 2023 release and in January of 2023, her comedy album, “This Happy,” debuted at number one, for five days straight, on iTunes. Hanley’s quick wit and upbeat persona, have to lead to her being featured in several Festivals, and two tours with Armed Forces Entertainment, providing laughter to our Troops overseas. As a writer/presenter, Meghan co-wrote and co-hosted the program for Fordham University’s Inaugural Athletics Gala, as well as Advertising Week NY’s“The Future is Female Awards.” Additionally, Meghan smiles a lot, which some people find suspicious, but mostly endearing.
