For the first episode of 2018, I had the privilege of interviewing the absolutely fabulous performance artist Alexandra Tatarsky. If you haven’t seen her live, I honestly don’t know what the fuck you are doing with your life. Alex sat down in the kitchen to discuss her early comedic influences, her monstrous 2017 touring performance piece Americana Psychobabble, studying the intricate art of clowning and miming, creating uncomfortable spaces for audiences and herself (and why that’s a good thing), institutional critique, and much more. We’re sponsored this week by how insufferable Scotland is, how unreal Stephen Miller’s voice and hairline are, guano, restaurant closures, and how god damn cold it is in New York. The outro song is "Proud to Be" by D.F.L.
