Valerie Vernale

Local comedian Valerie Vernale tells a joke from her stand-up act and then breaks it down, explaining how comedy is a way for her to tell the truth and combat fear at the same time.

Even in the safest space for you, when people are fighting for you, you still have cause to be afraid.

You can catch Valerie performing this Friday, December 18 at 6 p.m. as part of the woman-fronted stand-up comedy show “The Amazonians.
