"It’s hard to lose a parent. It’s even harder if you were hoping to lose the other parent first. [beat] If you were my brother, you’d be giving me a standing ovation, ‘Finally somebody said it.’"

Comedian Laurie Kilmartin (Native) writes dozens of jokes daily for Conan O’Brien, but she has no problem jumping into some serious material in the garage with Marc. Laurie discusses her struggles with an eating disorder, her transition from a road comic to a steady television writer, and the challenges of a single mom working in show business.

[One of my favorite podcasts ever. Extremely personal and necessary. Tons of Bay references and a great prelude to the transcendent Twitter activity from Laurie earlier this year. Catch this one before it goes into the archives.]

Laurie Kilmartin is an inspiration.


Comedian laurie kilmartin is tweeting about caring for her dying father. It is awesome.
