John Lasavath is a comedian from the St. Petersburg area. He is definitely in this year’s festival.
We’re so, so excited to have you performing with us in the inaugural Very Normal Festival, John! Can you tell us a little bit about your show? What can audiences expect to see?
Hey guys for the last time, I’m not performing in the festival. Quit texting me.
So let’s dig deep into your creative process. How did you first come up with the idea for the show? How did you develop it over time?
I wake up, I shower, and then I don’t perform in the festival. That’s my creative process.
You’re headlining the final block on Saturday night, and we couldn’t be more excited to have you there! Be honest: Are you nervous to have such a prime-time slot? How do you stay calm when you know that so much is riding on your performance?
Why do you guys keep giving me the headlining spot in all your festivals? The only thing I’m doing Saturday night is catching up on Great British Bake Off and I only get nervous when Noel Fielding talks to the bakers.
You’ve worked often with improv luminary Joe Bill. We’re not asking for spoilers or anything, but maybe just a little preview: Can we expect to see a cameo from him in your big show Saturday night?
I’m not on speaking terms with Joe Bill right now.
You’re a very funny guy, but we never knew that you could also sing! What inspired you to decide to share your musical talents with the world this time around? Are you hoping to show the world a different side of John Lasavath with this show?
Finally — we are contractually obligated to ask this question — on an ascending scale from 1 to 10, how normal can we expect your show to be, and why?
I don’t even get the point of this festival. Is the whole thing just a meta bit? Speaking of numbers I don’t know how you got my phone number but I’m blocking you guys. Again.
