On this week’s special coronavirus-focused episode, stand-up comedians Roy Wood Jr. and Maria Bamford discuss how comedy has been affected and has adapted to COVID-19 and self-quarantining. First, Roy explains just how radically different it is for stand-ups to be unable to perform in front of audiences, and how the temporary closing of clubs (and the resulting recession) will cripple comedy club employees and touring comedians. Then Maria talks about what it’s like to perform comedy every day to 100 silent strangers over Zoom.
