This week on Yes But Why, I talk to NYC comedian Robin Gelfenbien!
Robin Gelfenbien is an NYC-based storyteller, writer and comedian. She’s a three-time Moth Story SLAM winner who has performed on PBS, RISK!, Mortified and countless other shows. Robin is the Creator and Host of the storytelling series and podcast, “Yum’s the Word,” that features amazing stories alongside her homemade ice cream cakes. The show was named a New York Times and Time Out New York Critic’s Pick.
In our conversation, Robin tells us the stories of her life that have helped beget award winning theater: “the Calamity Jane” story and the “Wienermobile” story. Robin is a force of nature. She is the Ambassador of Fun. I had a great time talking to her.
From her aspirations to be a wacky weather girl to her career in advertising and marketing, we discuss all that she learned along the way. She talks about taking classes in sketch comedy and storytelling and later, teaching those classes and inspiring future performers.
Robin Gelfenbien is a fun lady and she works hard to bring the fun to her audience. I can’t even believe she makes her own HOMEMADE ICE CREAM CAKES to share with the audience of “Yum’s the Word” live events! This show brings together my two very favorite things – comedy and ice cream.
Support this hardworking woman of comedy by taking one of her storytelling classes! And you should listen to Robin’s podcast, “Yum’s the Word”!
You can also find Robin out hosting big corporate events. You should hire her for YOUR corporate event! Robin is an indispensable resource for you!
