#28 | Kris (@krysanthemum64) - The Cult Of Costco

This is episode 28 of the becoming human podcast,  where I explore the spectrum of humanity, teasing what people are drawn to,  their conflicts,  successes,  and observations.  This week, I sit down with Kris Anderson,  she's a comedian and hairstylist out of Bellingham. Check her out @krysanthemum64 https://www.instagram.com/krysanthemum64/

I was really into writing and performing in my youth which led me to poetry. I was disappointed to find very limited avenues to professionally pursue poetry coupled with the stigmas attached to it.  Meaning I would have to find an audience outside of poetry and then I was introduced to comedy.  Both poetry and comedy aim to connect and engage an audience using words, but the devices were different and I liked it.  I'm really bad at being humorous,  but writing is almost a compulsion at this point in my life.  Observing life and following my natural curiosities has been my obsession since I could remember.  Maybe I should have been a journalist,  eh that way of connecting with people doesn't always resonate very deep.  Making someone laugh in comedy or hang on their seat in poetry that sounds like a good time….  In this episode,  I try to learn the process of becoming a comic in the Pacific Northwest and the concept behind jokes. Add usual,  we cover a large spectrum of tangents- attending alternative school,  hair styling,  rural culture and why I need to join the cult of costco.
