Ask a Professional Comedian: Gabe Liedman

blackcannonball asked you:gabe question! every time i watch a comedian, they never have any notes or anything. how do y’all remember your jokes?(or is there a teleprompter or something)
Welp!  You nailed it!  For these specials we totally had a teleprompter which was like our set lists.  It told us what our next joke was, and also how much time we had left!  It was mostly just there for comfort though—I only looked at mine when it started blinking ‘10 MINUTES LEFT.’  In real life I also don’t bring notes up on stage with me.  I just like to be kind of loose and free, and however it comes out is how it comes out.  It’s a total bummer, though, when I forget to say something I was planning to say.  Notes would help with that!  So I guess to answer your question: teleprompter for TV, freeballin’ in real life!

montgomerywayne asked you:What’s the most illegal thing you’ve ever done? Where my Outlaws at? Guess that’s 2 ?’s!
…Maybe buy weed from you at SXSW?  But that shouldn’t be illegal, right???  GROW UP, TX.  Hi Montgomery!  I don’t break a lot of laws per se, or at least not important ones, but I’m an outlaw in different ways!  For example I FUCKING HATE THE FUCKING MAN, MAN!  Also I stole dumbells from my old gym, which is literally psychotic :/

davidjoxley asked you:Gabe: Kittens,Puppies….or Bourbon?
PUPPIES!!! Allergic to kittens and bourbon is TOO #FLAVORFUL! I’m a vodka boyeeee.
currentsingleladyfuturecatlady asked you:Dear Gabe, You and Jenny Slate have been my favorite guests on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes. Have you and Jenny ever thought of starting your own podcast or any other new projects together? That would be a dream come true for me.
Thank you so much!  Jenny and I have many more BESTIEXBESTIE videos on the way, via Funny or Die.  But also?  When you’re psycho cartoon characters like us, everything’s a PROJECT.  We just went to Trader Joe’s together!  LOLOL—see?!?!?!?
