Episode 49: Usama Siddiquee, Doing 28 Sets Per Week and Bringing Charisma to Comedy

Hey everyone! I’m finally back in LA. While I was in New York, I had the opportunity to sit down with the very funny and charismatic Usama Siddiquee. Usama is a bit famous in NY for his incredible comedy hustle. At one point, he was hitting 28+ mics/shows PER week. That’s four per night and more than anyone else in NY (and probably the country?). Usama was featured in Just For Laugh’s and was recently passed at the Comedy Cellar. One thing I really admire about Usama is his incredible charisma. He has such a powerful, kind, magnetic presence and it’s always something I look up to. In this interview, Usama and I talk about charisma, hustling, treating comics as PEOPLE first, being a good human, and just doing the comedy thing.
