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 and 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, Joey Dardano (Chris Gethard Presents, Help From a Hypocrite podcast, all over TikTok) got up from his toilet just long enough to have a li’l chat with me about how he’s handling life in quar. He schooled me on how to make the best of your TikTok niche, explained the nuances of dealing with IBS, and got real about all the various bodily fluids you’re gonna have to deal with when you live in NYC. He also broke down all the ways in which he is a major catch when it comes to dating, including his dance moves, his capacity for empathy, and of course, his spectacularly groomed facial hair: “You know what this [mustache] means? This means I know how to change a tire, my dude!”
