charlie ponger:

All right, we're coming in hot. Hey, everyone.

Debbie Nigro, Luz Michelle:

Smoke burning burning.

charlie ponger:

Welcome to the official Seenagers. I'm Charlie Ponger. Along

Debbie Charlie:

with Debbie Nigro,

Luz Michelle:

Luz Michelle.

charlie ponger:

Hey, Luz. You got something to tell us today? Don't you? Do?

Debbie Nigro, Luz Michelle:

Yeah, professional comedian. So we want comedian which, by the way I'm so jealous of. It's such a great skill to be able to get in front of people and do that. I mean, I love being funny. But I'm scared to death to be live funny in front of people. Because they say it's the number one fear because they hate you public speaking and nobody, like, look at you. But you said you got a worse story than just, they don't like you.

Luz Michelle:

So recently, there was a comedian who was at a show. Audience Member didn't agree with what she was saying. And they decided to throw a beer a can at em. No. But she fucking grabbed that beer and chugged it no perfect how she wrapped it. Yeah. And now she's going to be on late night. So in the end, she winded up winning, but it's just like this is happening more often than not that if an audience member doesn't like what we're saying, they'll just fucking throw something.

Debbie Nigro:

No way. That's so wrong. It's really rude. Yeah, wait, so that was a beer can full.

Luz Michelle:

It was a good enough amount that when you watch the video, you see it's fucking splashes out of the thing. No, and she's chugging for a minute. So it was definitely like, you know, he left in there. I mean, you probably gotta get a COVID test after that. But you know,

Debbie Nigro:

he really liked beer. Maybe she'd be a rotten comedian. Just see what happens. Get A Six Pack so people throw stuff how broke out now? how low, have we gone as society? Well,

Luz Michelle, Charlie Ponger:

it's happening. I think a lot of it started off you know, with Mr. Chris Rock getting slapped in the face. That it almost opened the door that if you don't agree with what we're saying? Sure. Throw a chair at me and come on stage. Have you ever had anything thrown at you? No, thank God and please don't so mean. So mean? I mean, if you want to throw a plastic whiskey bottle and I can catch it, I'm on board.

Luz, Charlie:

I'm gonna come to one of your shows and kind of toss, give you a soft toss of Oh, no, Charlie. You can catch it and start drinking it.

Debbie Charlie:

You know Luz we were talking before about how you prepare for a show. Right? And how you have totally open sets. Tell everybody I think it's really interesting. How I prepare like for live stand up comedy.

luz, charlie, debbie:

I have rules. They have rules before it shows I don't hang out with anyone before show except my husband. I only have one drink before show and has to be on the rocks. And they have my cue cards. cue cards like Joan Rivers did I always go over them right before show and go? Well, you carry them on stage with you. Now never they stay in the pocketbook. The pocketbook pocketbook.

Luz, Debbie:

Yeah, people make fun of because I call it a pocket book.

Luz Michelle:

Supper, refrigerator. But

Charlie Ponger:

do you still say dungarees? noooo?

Debbie Nigro:

The pocketbook is a big one. Like what is it?

Luz Michelle:

It's in my pocket. My man is saying I monitor my pocketbook. What's the pocketbook?

Debbie Charlie:

So you say you don't talk to anybody and your memorize everything in some places will say okay, your set can only be 20 minutes or 10 minutes or 15. How do you know where to cut yourself off?

Luz Michelle:

I have a five 7,10 12,15 a 20 and a 30 minutes. That

Debbie, Luz:

sounds like my wardrobe. Yeah, I'm ready. I'm ready. I was like the size of my outfits. I got a five I'm getting a stand up comedy having done it. And I love getting the laughs You must be so thrilled when people think you're a riot, which you are

Luz Michelle:

because you put so much into it. So it's like when someone laughs It's like getting positive feedback. It's great.

Debbie Nigro:

But what happens and I would never this is where I would go off what happens when you're getting no reaction because every audience is different.

Luz Michelle:

So this new line I've been saying is oh you guys don't you will come in to hear poetry. What's happening here? You gotta roll with it or you talk to someone in the audience right? Where what's going on? Why? Uh, why are you enjoying me tonight? What's a mad Am I triggering you?

Debbie, Luz:

That's incredible. You don't ever get nervous or freeze every single one I'm nervous before okay, but during you don't get nervous and freeze you just roll with it every now I'm just rolling really amazing.

Luz Michelle:

It's the most confident I am I feel so I not that I want anyone to do it. But I wonder like if someone threw something at me how would I react because I my best self up there. Right?

charlie ponger:

Well, you're you're from Staten Island so I know how you would

Luz Michelle:

I recently performed Staten Island last week. One of my best fucking sets Yeah, really was

Debbie Nigro:

comfortable that people get you?

Luz Michelle:

Yeah, and Staten Island is Tough crowd. Tough crowd like if you're not funny, they're gonna let you know you're not no one's gonna give you a pity laugh in Staten Island. You know?

charlie ponger:

What's a pity laugh you got oh, I've got that sounds are the what do you do? What do you do when you get a pity love or pity clap? You do?

Luz Michelle:

Yeah. I need your fucking pity laugh. Save that for your wife. Something insulting. While your goods Great.

charlie ponger:

What about have you ever been heckled?

Luz Michelle:

I have been heckled I had my God. Now upstate. I had like the Bachelorette. Tables were there cackling not listening and you're up there, like, spilling your soul out.

charlie ponger:

Oh, it was a bachelorette party. Bachelorette. What did you expect? Yeah.

Luz Michelle:

I don't know what I expected or not. Yeah, you're right. What did I expect? They're

charlie ponger:

not gonna listen to me.

Luz Michelle:

That was my question. Why are you here by listening to me talk behind a mic and not a guy like swinging his dick around. Like, why are you here? You're not paying as

Debbie Nigro:

hate that's so wrong. Oh, I have you know, I'm an empath. So if somebody's not paying attention to the musician, I always still stand like, oh, look over here. The guy over here.

charlie ponger:

any background noise . Yeah. It's just like a great musician. You go to a bar and you walk in. And you hear this unbelievable musician, and no one is paying attention.

Luz Michelle:

Love the guy who's screaming his heart out.

Debbie Nigro:

Could you pay tango? Could you play? Can we get this guy a little love? And people start talking about gosh, we gotta give this guy some love. Nobody else is paying attention. Like, could we have to do it

charlie ponger:

Luz Tell us about tell the audience about your prep for the show? Because I bet yeah, well, I'm very interested in that. Like, you had talked about Joan Rivers

Luz, Charlie:

cue card system.

charlie ponger:

Where did that come about? And how did you discover that?

Luz Michelle:

I watched her documentary. And she let you enter her home. And she showed you like the method behind her madness, because there has to be a method was Dan Okami especially you've been doing it as long as I have, you have so much material. So when they I'm watching eyes, and I noticed that she put everything in alphabetical order on index cards. And I was like, That's fucking brilliant. Because you'll always have an index card, right? I feel like a lot of times, we've also stopped writing with pen and paper, we just put it in our phone. So like when I whip out my index cards, I feel amazing. I feel put together. Right so I'll take my cue cards. I look at them real quick. I take a shot and I pray to god I'm gonna be funny. Yeah, that's the number one thing I do before I pray you do I pray? I pray in a positive way. I don't pray for so much me. I pray that that my best self does shows up. And everyone has a good fucking time to me.

Debbie Nigro:

It's really good. Yeah, you're on a you're gonna get a lot a lot of shows get and gigs. But I'm so proud of you. I'm following you on Instagram. And I'm like, wow, she's I asked you a question about a woman comedian. Late at night in faraway places, leaving your family behind having to drive home in the dark by yourself. You know?

Luz Michelle:

All of it right? Well, it's all in my life. Right? But I feel like cuz you know, exactly. Now I'm in my mid 40s. I'm a mom. I'm married. Right? I live in fucking Westchester. So I have to now be a little bit more like what show am I going to do? What show am I not going to do? Right? Because a bar show 12 o'clock at night and when no one's ever gonna know him that come on. Right. Do you kids think you're funny? They do. Thank God. Thank God my daughter has seen me clean.

charlie ponger:

And this woman who was behind me, went to pick them up at the same time. We almost bumped heads. And she goes, Oh, this is a good workout. Right? And so we're picking them up laughing a little bit. And I said, Yeah, you know, I go, Wow, you look great. You know, I said, your hair looks great. Because I love
