Hello! Let’s go ahead and do another one of these, where we meet a funny person with good jokes! Earlier this week, Comedy Central announced they’d be airing a bunch of half hour specials later this year from a collection of really funny people. One such person is Naomi Ekperigin, who is also our Funny Human of the Week!
Naomi is a standup comedian and writer who lives in NYC. You might recognize her from her appearances on Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell, she’s also written for Broad City and Difficult People, two of the funniest comedies going! Let’s watch a clip of her stand up to get us going.
I mentioned before that she wrote for Totally Biased, one of my favorite shows of recent years. Here’s one of her segments on the show!
Here’s a real fun episode of IFC’s Comedy Drop webseries Naomi did, where she’s tasked with performing pop up standup comedy to unwitting folks sitting in a coffee shop. It gets weird!
Naomi’s @Blacktress on Twitter and you should be following her. Here are five reasons why:

Was just reminded that when I lived in Australia I was almost repped by a talent agency called CHOCOLATE COLORED CHARACTERS. #bulletdodged

I wish my body was a wonderland but it's more like a city playground.

Can't wait to hear college a cappella groups' soulless renditions of "daddy lessons" from #LEMONADE. Please keep me looped in.

Let’s watch one last clip from Naomi, this one is a segment from a one-off live talk show she produced with Phoebe Robinson. It’s called Have You Seen This Woman and it’s very silly.
