Natasha Leggero interview
Happy start of the Northwest Comedy Festival. Did you know it was happening? It's true. Ms. Leggero plays Yuk Yuk's (12th and Cambie) tonight through Saturday. I spoke to her nine days ago over the phone. We talked about her persona, critics, Woody Allen, and SpaghettiOs. Here is our conversation in all its edited glory.

"I think you start to move out of the realm of comedy if you're really aware that everyone's suffering and you want to help everybody. Obviously you could do political humour. And I'm always interested in political undertones but comedy is just a place to make people laugh and present ideas that can make people laugh." – Natasha Leggero
: Hi, this is Natasha.
: I can tell you're from Canada because you say Na-TASH-a.
"I think that your stage persona finds you, if you keep at it long enough. And if you're lucky, it can present itself to you as your evil twin." – Natasha Leggero
Everyone's doing the best they can! You can't blame people for only thinking literally, really.
