Ask a Professional Comedian: Gabe Liedman
Anonymous asked you:Is your mother fodder for your comedy when she’s not in the audience?
It’s weird, I barely talk about my family in my comedy, and it’s not because they’re not insane.  I guess that’s just not where my comedic mind goes?  I can tell you this, though: my mom is one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet, and I get a lot of my sense of humor from her.  My whole family is funny—I’m probably the least funny of all.  I’m the quiet one.
nickstoeberl asked you:Gabe. gays are cool. but sometimes i only think they like me because i literally have the world’s longest tongue. how do i distance myself, yet not come off disrespectful…. #cereal
What are you like that all these gays know how long your tongue is?  Are you always showing it off?  Maybe they like you so much because you’re always showing them your tongue and they think you want to hook up with them on the low?  You can distance yourself without seeming disrespectful by not telling everyone how long your tongue is, lol.
Anonymous asked you:Gabe: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve gotten from a comedian and who was it?
Stand-up-wise, Nick Kroll told me not to start my material right when I got on stage.  Fuck around a little and feel what it’s like up there first, then start.  It’s changed everything.  You can really get tunnel vision when you’re up there and forget you’re in a room with actual other people.
Anonymous asked you:Gabe Liedman, New York or LA? Take a side!
New York for your 20’s, LA for grownups.  Eh?
Anonymous asked you:What does Jenny Slate smell like?
Lol.  This is what I’d ask about Matt Damon, so I guess you are deeply in love with Jenny, and who could blame you?  She wears a perfume that’s like fresh flowers— orange blossoms I think?  It’s pretty faint and very nice, not overwhelming or too sweet.  She NEVER has B.O.—like in the million years I’ve known her, never.  She farts a ton but those don’t smell either, which makes no sense.  Being around her is much more of a SOUND experience than a SMELL one, sense-wise.  Also: she’s married to a v hot guy, sorry :/
