Shows & Podcasts

Hang out with Katie on her two podcasts, Kid/Life Crisis and The Shade Of It All, or live NYC shows, Happy Place Comedy, Dudes Being Dudes Being Dudes, and Golden Spiral Comedy.


Kid/Life Crisis Podcast

Fellow standup comic and author Raquel D'Apice (buy her book!) and I sit down with various guests (past episodes include NPR's Ophira Eisenberg and NASA's Michelle Thaller) to talk about the decision whether or not to have children. You can listen online or subscribe in iTunes. We're on hiatus until December but I'm proud of each and every episode we've done, so listen up!

The Shade Of It All Podcast

After my friends and I watch RuPaul's Drag Race, we gather to throw shade at the queens, the producers, and each other. We've covered the last three seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race, plus All-Stars. When the show is on, we record weekly.

Live NYC Shows

Happy Place Comedy: Sue Funke and I host a lineup of wonderful comics on the third Thursday of every month at 9pm at QED in Astoria, Queens. This show is our happy place! Join us and make it yours, too! (We can do that-- we're really fun.)

Dudes Being Dudes: Lauren Maul, Calvin Cato and I host a comedy showcase of straight dudes-- with a twist: There are no straight dudes! Only us and our women/LGBT friends playing dress-up. We're at Over the Eight in Williamsburg, Brooklyn every second Tuesday of the month at 8pm!


Golden Spiral Comedy: Mindy Raf and I host a show where the sets get longer according to the Fibonacci sequence: 5 minutes up to 8, 13, and 20 minutes. We always get an amazing lineup, and we put on the show on the first Monday of the month at the HiFi Bar, 169 Ave A at 7pm!
