In so many ways todays comedians are really the philosophers of the day. The medium allows these great minds to tackle tricky, touchy and controversial subjects in a way that can’t be done without humor to offset peoples preconceived notions or the dreaded political correctness. Adrienne Airhart is no exception to this art – she came by the kitchen table to talk about her life as a comedian, how psychedelics are influencing her work and how a difficult and traumatic early life led to a breakthrough in becoming an incredibly strong woman. I really enjoyed getting into her mind and thought waves, I hope you do too!
Intro Rant: Death. Yes, death.
Adrienne Airhart is a comedian, writer and “cannabis professional.” My degree is in linguistics, with an emphasis on the history of the English language. By night I am a stand up comedian, a presence which bleeds into much of my creative writing, as humor is the tie that brings compassion and education into interesting text. My favorite topics involve cannabis and general “woke-ness”, ranging from environmental issues, cultural divides, psychedelics, and learning how to survive a scary political climate.
