I talked with comedian Drew Landry about his comedy style and his comedic influences.

Q: Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Chicago. We moved to Baltimore when I was 15.

 

Q: When did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

I was a little kid obsessed with “Saturday Night Live.” I had ALL the ‘Best Of’ DVD’s. Chris Farley and Will Ferrell were my favorites.

 

Q: As a comic, what make YOU laugh?

I have a pretty broad sense of humor. But really silly, stupid humor gets me going.

 

Q: Favorite part of stand up comedy?

The feeling you get after you KILL. It’s bar none the best feeling in the world.

Q: Where does your comedy come from?

Mostly things that have happened to me. I exaggerate the hell out of them, and make them more ridiculous.

 

Q: Who are your favorite comics?

Andrew Dice Clay, Chris Rock..Bill Cosby before he was weird.

 
Q: Favorite part of the DC/Baltimore comedy scene?

I loved the community feeling. You have some really cool and really funny comics in the DMV. I love coming back and seeing everyone again.
