We aren’t the only funny couple out there, so we thought it’d be fun to ask our comedy friends the same questions we get asked all the time.
He is the host of one of the funniest live shows in Chicago, “Impress These Apes”, as well as a writer, graphic designer and video producer. She is a performer, choreographer and producer of “Impress These Apes”, just to name a few things. Meet the über talented Fuzzy and Erica…
– Do you make each other laugh all the time at home?
Fuzzy: Yes, absolutely.
Erica: Fuzzy is the funniest and handsomest person I know.
Fuzzy: No one will ever believe that I didn’t make up that Erica said that. Which is the kind of joke she loves.
– Does the comedy come easier because you’re married/in a relationship?
Erica: I don’t think I’m funnier because I’m married, and we don’t do the kind of comedy that’s based on relationships. Most of our comedy is fairly absurd, even when we do duo routines.
Fuzzy: But it’s helpful to know that there’s always someone at home who gets that absurd humor and doesn’t judge. It gives us a solid base to work from. But we were both plenty funny before we were married.
Erica: We don’t always agree on comedy, but we’re great at working together and those differences of opinion keeps us on our toes.
– How do you balance your “comedy life” with your “regular married life”?
Fuzzy: We both have day jobs, so doing a show together is actually a chance to hang out.
Erica: And when we’re in different shows we do have to schedule nights home together.
– What are the pros and cons of being in a relationship with a comedy partner?
Erica: Pros: I get to watch him perform and succeed. He makes me laugh. He understands me and the way my brain works. He supports my weird ideas and projects. He thinks I’m funny. Deez nuts.
Cons: Sometimes he thinks he’s high-larious. He’s constantly making shit up, so I never know when he’s telling the truth.
Fuzzy: Pros: She’s hilarious. She gets why it’s important to make a video of a cat wearing sunglasses at 11pm. She’s supportive as all get out.
Cons: She once killed a man. With laughter.
– Anything else you’d like to add that you think would be fun?
Fuzzy and Erica: We wouldn’t have met if we weren’t both doing comedy, which is the most important thing: having met the love of our lives.
Fuzzy and Erica are a part of the Blewt! comedy troupe, but they constantly have their own fun projects going on. Check out their stuff!
