Interview with the engaging and inquisitive Comedian Kirsty Webeck. Kirsty started out with a comedy workshop/showcase three years ago, and soon after put together a 1-hour show, which (with her Public Relations background) she managed to sell out very quickly! Since then she’s written several hour-long shows, including her first MICF show in 2015. Kirsty also works on Joy FM (94.9), including a recent seven-week stint on DriveTime.
We discuss: Getting gigs before getting to know other comics, the risqué and wild challenge of drinking water on stage, the opening of doors with networking in comedy, the importance of mental health maintenance, mindfulness, baring your soul with comedy, depersonalising, views on social media and mental health, reacting vs responding, locus of control, the danger of assumptions, Kirtsy’s super power, giving and receiving compliments, the issue of today’s desire for instant gratification, and Kirsty’s message to keep yourself healthy in every way and to be kind to everyone around you.
