Quick Questions with Allison Sciulla
[Editor's Note: Quick Questions is our semi-regular feature where we ask comedians a ton of random questions without giving them time to think of anything funny to say. Surprisingly, they still do.]
Vinnie Spit I WANTED A GUITAR!
Allison Sciulla is a kick ass comic and author of the books "You're Probably A Slut," "And Then I Shit My Pants," and "Anna Likes Anal" which are clearly not for your parents or Oprah's book club. She's also very musically inclined and has a new solo comedy music album called "Wholesome" coming out April 12th and a companion movie called "Some Hole" that you can grab on May 1st. For now though, let's get back to focusing on the comedy. Sciulla will be at the Irvine Improv April 10th for "Sideshow Network's 5 spot Comedy" and before the laughs are delivered via the awesome line-up that evening, we got some one-on-one time with her for a quick game of "Quick Questions."
What's the craziest thing you've ever done while drunk? Pay for my own drink.
Tell us about your first time on stage- It was at a room called "Marty's" on Sunset Blvd. I was nervous, shaking, and sweating. Later that night I crashed and totaled my car. Welcome to comedy!
Favorite comedy club food- This may sound odd but, I don't eat before shows. I only drink Red Bull and water. Consequently, I always need to pee right before I go on stage.
What are your pet peeves? I cannot stand being interrupted or having to repeat myself. But that may be from the Red Bull.
Best advice you've ever received- "Don't waste time blaming yourself for what you haven't done in the past. It's more productive to congratulate yourself for where you are now." - Vinnie
Who in your life is funny but doesn't realize how hilarious they are? I laugh a lot at my parents. It's usually at their expense. They are very Italian.
Guiltiest pleasure- Day dreaming about killing my parent's annoying dog Teddy.
What would you name an autobiography of your life? Already done. It's called "And Then I Shit My Pants." It's published by Volossal and is available from most on-line retailers.
