46: Gina Brillon's First Time

HBO stand-up veteran Gina Brillon is here to discuss her early days performing in front of fellow students into a hairbrush, professionally starting stand-up at 17 with her identical twin sister, and the lesson on how she became comfortable in her own skin. Gina describes the worst heckling of all time, her mistake in trying to handle it, and the host that literally ran to the stage to dismiss her. Gina takes us through her journey that includes The Latino Circuit, the politics of diversity, Just for Laughs, television, and teary-eyed parents.
