Episode 38: Mekki Leeper, From College to White House

Hi Working Comic Fans,

In this episode, I interviewed the very funny and talented Mekki Leeper. He’s only 24 and he’s tearing up the comedy game. His standup has been featured on The Late Late Show with James CordenJust For Laughs: New FacesComedy Central’s Up Next, and he was named a Comedian You Should Know by Vulture in 2018. He also wrote for the 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner. In this episode we talk about some really cool stuff:

  • Dropping out of college to pursue comedy
  • Touring different comedy scenes while in college
  • Getting a life changing e-mail
  • Being a stand up comic vs being a comedian
  • Working on comedy central projects
  • Balancing projects and stand up

On 2/9, be sure to RSVP for the debut of his social experiment.
