Lydia Manning is a comedian based out of Portland, Oregon. This is the second half of the two-episode comedian special. I hadn't really had any comedians until now, and they drove down from Portland to do a show in Eugene so I spoke with them while they were in town!

A former staple of the Wilmington, North Carolina comedy scene, Lydia was a regular opener at the Dead Crow Comedy Room, host in the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, writer/cast member for Wilmington's live late-night talk show, Late Fear with Wills Maxwell, and host of the monthly stand-up showcase, Sips & Giggles. Now a new and unique voice in the Portland comedy community, she is quickly becoming a sought after entertainer, performing throughout the Pacific Northwest. Lydia's comedy is dynamic, smart, and absurd, frequently pulling audiences out of their comfort zones and into her universe. She has been a part of the She-Devil Comedy Festival and North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, and has performed with some extremely cool comedians, including Jay Pharoah, Mary Mack, and Arj Barker.

She comes on the show to talk about what it's like being a woman in the comedy scene!
