Hey folks, let’s talk about another comedian who I think you’ll like. This week we’re going to get to know the work of NYC-based comic Carmen Lagala, who made her late nite television debut on Colbert earlier this summer!
Here’s a fun clip of Carmen playing a game called Silent Trailers on the acclaimed New York podcast Keith and the Girl. I wonder if I’d be good at this?? Feels like a fun thing to play on a road trip.
Carmen helps run a real goofy, high concept stand up show in New York called Puppets Present, wherein standup comics interact with puppets following their set. Here’s the opening bit from a recent show, featuring Carmen and her cohost Kelsey Caine.

I can't stop saying "wow" when a waiter brings my food; it could literally be a plate of sticks and I turn into Owen Wilson

Before we part ways, let’s watch another clip of our friend Carmen doing standup. This was recorded last year live at Wyatt Cenac’s popular Night Train standup showcase in Brooklyn.
