Madeline and Liz here, and we are back with the last episode of Let Me Get Back to You - Season 1!
In our final episode of this first season, we chat with the hysterical Emma Vernon.
By day, Emma is an Integrated Marketing Manager at Viacom for Comedy Central and Spike. But by night, Emma takes the NYC comedy scene by storm with her hilarious improv skills.
In Episode 5, Emma shares with us how she was first inspired to do comedy and perform at a young age by her grandmother.
She takes us through her journey - first as an intern at Seventeen Magazine, then to her passion-defining experience training in comedy at an Upright Citzen’s Brigade class where she fell in love with improv comedy, to her first adult job at AMC Networks where she learned the magic of powerpoint, to her job now where she marries her love of comedy in her day job at Comedy Central & Spike, with her evenings filled with performing improv comedy in NYC.
We definitely didn’t want our interview with Emma to end - she had us laughing so hard we cried - and are so glad we recorded this one to share with you!
Oh, and let’s help Emma’s google search change from “the ghost of Massachusetts” to “Let Me Get Back to You podcast guest” by listening and sharing on your social!
