Every Friday, The Experiment Comedy showcases comedians you should be following on Twitter. In this week’s edition of ‘Why Aren’t You Following?’ we proudly present to you the Tweets of New York City-based standup comic Carmen Lagala.
Carmen Lagala is a former track star turned comedian who originally hails from the Green Mountain state of Vermont, where she is still a member of The Vermont Comedy Divas, and probably live super-close to Ben & Jerry. (At least it’s how we imagine Vermont.) She’s produced and hosted several live shows up there, including the popular weekly standup showcase Half & Half Comedy in Burlington. She is also the former co-founder and show booker over at Levity Comedy Club.
Among Carmen’s accomplishments: she was a finalist in 2014’s Vermont’s Funniest Comedian Competition, was crowned the winner of the 9th annual Higher Ground Comedy Battle in 2013, and was a part of last year’s Women in Comedy Festival in Boston.
In New York City, you can catch Carmen performing at several great venues, including her current home base of The Creek and The Cave in Long Island City.
Anyway, since we’re all here because of Twitter, check out some of our favorite of Carmen’s most recent Tweets:
