From Reena's Bio:
Reena Calm is an East Coast Jew turned Chicago favorite, and one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest. Pulling from a lifetime of questionable choices, Reena’s material is autobiographical, silly, and charmingly inappropriate. Reena is a featured regular at the Laugh Factory and performs all over the country on her signature #CalmedyTours. She loves a good fest! Some of the best were Accidental Comedy Festival, Birmingham Comedy Festival, Milwaukee Comedy Festival, Let’s Fest, Burning Bridges Festival, Turnbuckle Fest, The Comedy Exposition, Flyover Comedy Invasion, Limestone Comedy Festival, RiOT LA, Gilda’s LaughFest - Best of the Midwest, and Just For Laughs Chicago. She has opened for Arsenio Hall, Laurie Kilmartin, and Eddie Pepitone to name a few. Reena has been a frequent guest on WGN Radio, the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and she was named Comic of The Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show. Check out her first book “Once A Pun A Time…” here: Once A Pun A Time She’s been called “also terrific” by the Chicago Tribune, and “not a disappointment” by her mother.
Reena is not a dissapointment to her mother and not as a guest on the podcast. We talked about her start in improv and how that helped her with her standup. We also touched on life on the road and working with comics you don't like. This was a great interview!
