Best Comedian made its first appearance as a category this year, and the roster of finalists proved that it does indeed belong. It was the first thing winner Bianca Carrasco spoke of when informed of the final vote tally.
“It’s very surprising,” she said. “I’m not the best yet, but it is so motivating to have the community behind me and to know that the category even exist. The other comedians deserve some recognition.”
With one ambitious year of comedy under her belt, Carrasco says there is room for growth.
“I’m trying to get a lot more disciplined. I like to write at a coffee shop. I like to watch people interact,” Carrasco said. “My own comedy style is my own personal stories. There’s so much absurdity in my day-to-day, and if you can’t laugh at it, it will consume me.”
Be sure to catch Bianca battle the absurdity, and watch all the other nominees as they grow the scene for our benefit.
“Every laugh is a little success,” Carrasco said. “Every smile is a little win – a little victory.”
