Russian-born Vicky Kuperman has performed nationwide for over a decade and was named one of Huffington Post’s new comedians to watch.  She’s been seen on Live From Gotham, Nickelodeon, The Maxim comedy Showcase and heard regularly on SiriusXM. 

Her comedy albums When I Could FeelAll Good! and Three’s Comedy are in regular rotation on SiriusXM, and her book How to Spy on Your Neighbor was top 10 in political-humor on Amazon.

Interview with Vicky Kuperman

1. What gets you out of bed in the morning i.e., What is your source of motivation? 

Yesterday’s version of me. If yesterday’s version of me set up my day right, with things to do, places to go, and goals to achieve, then I’ll get out of bed. If yesterday’s me watched reruns of Beverly Hills 90210 all day, then today’s me will stay in bed and watch reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. That’s why I always tell myself : “ Be the person today that the tomorrow you will thank.”
 
 
2. What is your business / work all about ? 
 
I’m a stand-up comedian. I want to make people laugh. Their joy brings me joy. 
 
 
3. Why should people choose you / your product / service ? 
 
If they have a sense of humor and like to have fun! If they don’t, they’re probably one of the many guys I dated in my 20s who couldn’t handle a woman who was funnier than them. 
 
 
4. What comes first for you, money or emotions? 
 
Food. 
 
 
5. Tell me about an accomplishment you are most proud of.
 
Convincing my husband to get a dog. It was a four-year-long battle and I WON. 

 
6. How do you handle the pressure?
 
Xanax. 
 
 
7. What advice would you give to someone starting out ? 
 
Become an accountant.
Don’t wait around for people to book you. Get as much stage time as possible, produce your own shows, don’t get caught up in drama, and stick to the craft. And always, always speak up and stand up for yourself when you’re being treated unfairly. I wish I’d done that.
