Dani Fernandez Thinks God Is Just Playing Games at This Point

Thanks to the coronavirus, comedians are now trapped at home like the rest of us, so we decided that while we’re all self-quarantining, we’d do something a little different from our usual “Follow Friday” column. Instead of interviewing up-and-coming comedians we love on Twitter, we’re going live on Instagram every week to check in on some of our favorite people in comedy to get a firsthand look into how they’re handling the pandemic. So welcome to our new version of the column, now titled “Follow (From a Safe Distance) Friday.”

This week, Dani Fernandez (Disney, Syfy, on her amazing Instagram, seriously go check it out) woke up L.A. early to graciously chat with me about how she’s been coping in … all of this. She gifted us some amazing perspective on WOC representation in the comic industry, questioned how sincere her comedian friends are becoming in quarantine, and got real about finding the funny during dark times. She also gave us her philosophical thoughts on what the hell is going on in the world right now: “If there is a God, they’re just … They’re just rolling the dice at this point.”
