Brittany Brave is a New York City-based comedian who has been featured on TBS, MTV, The New York Times, ELLE and was named a Best New Talent by the New York Comedy Festival in 2019. She is also the founder of We are Cat Call, a platform for women’s leadership, progress and camaraderie that does female-focused events for all.
I wanted to have Brittany on the show because we are really kindred spirits and have a similar path -both Italian Catholic, both only children both huge champions of fellow women and creatives. Brittany started her professional career in PR and did comedy on the side, but her true passion was always calling her. However, it wasn’t until she found herself in a situation of domestic violence that she truly started owning her creativity as a way of admitting what was going on and taking charge of her life again. From Brittany, you will truly learn creativity’s ability to not only help, but even save your life.
From our conversation you’ll also learn:
- How to "come out" as a creative at your day job
- Some of the weird quirks of Italian culture
- The unique and horrifying pressures of being an only child
- How to make money as a comedian during the pandemic
- Tips to pivot your career
- Hear our open dialogue about mental health
- Advice on dating during the pandemic.
Also, I want to give a quick trigger warning...This is a very well-rounded conversation that ranges from serious and deeply emotional, to inspiring to rolling on the floor laughing, with that said, it’s important to mention that we do go into Brittany’s experience as a survivor of domestic violence and how comedy helped her through it. So I just think it’s important that you know that.
