Funny In Failure

Mar 9, 2020

Justine Sless is a comedian, writer and former creative director of the Melbourne Jewish Comedy Festival. Justine is completing her masters by research in creative writing – specifically regarding gender and comedy. Justine has performed in Australia, Europe and the UK. She has taught comedy, written about comedy in short stories, academic journals and online forums in the UK and Australia.

It's a really interesting podcast, where we talk about Justine, who is a immigrant and a mother and the journey of becoming a comedian and what comedy means to her. We also chat about her research in gender and comedy, loneliness, fear, failure and humiliation, comedy and homelessness, her Jewish identity and whether it’s ok to talk about rape on stage.

Check her out on: Insta/ Twitter: @justinesless Her awesome blog:
