Irene Tu is Out On Stage
A comedian to keep your eye on is LA-based Irene Tu.
Following her appearance in the Out On Stage special produced for Dekkoo, we caught up with Irene Tu to talk about queer comedy.
How did you feel when you were invited to take part in the Out on Stage series?
I thought it was a really cool idea!
What does it mean to you to be in the first all queer stand up series ever?
I’m flattered to be part of the first all queer stand up series.
How did you prepare for the taping?
I did material that I’ve done previously.
Were you pleased with how you delivered your routine?
I might have chosen a couple different jokes if I were to do it again, but otherwise I felt okay about it.
What was it like being part of a show where everyone in the line-up was queer and delivering sets that focused on the queer experience?
It was definitely very cool to be a part of a queer show and all of us had unique experiences and jokes.
What do you hope that people feel when they’re watching your routine as part of Out on Stage?
I hope they find it funny and relatable.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the months ahead?
I would love to travel more doing stand up.
