You Had To Be There #103: Sue Costello


This week, Sara and Nikki are personally invited to a Taylor Swift gig out in Jersey and neither snow nor rain nor violent food poisoning will stay these girls from meeting Swift herself. Comic and birthday girl Sue Costello (@suecostello, The Fighter, TV everything) takes the ladies through her one-woman show I Wasn’t Trying To Be Funny for which she’s currently raising money through Kickstarter (help her out!). The show covers Sue’s entire comedic career thus far, from the highs of being discovered at an elderly bringer show to the improbably unlucky lows of jealous mentors and hindering home runs, and how through it all she’s maintained her trademark candor and zeal.

In closing, Nikki implores you to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV Tuesday at 11pm/10c. Trust her, she’s an expert in these things.
