You Made It Weird: Naomi Ekperigin

Naomi Ekperigin.  Repeat after me: Naomi Ehk-pear-eh-ghen.  Now repeat again and again until you get it right because she is a gem among mundane mountains of stale, re-purposed comedy.  The wonderful Pete Holmes (who I’ve been growing to love via his radiant show “Crashing” which shows his early days in comedy as a new divorcee after growing up in a deep religious upbringing) featured her on his podcast “You Made It Weird” where you can see why she’s poised to take on her own show.

Favorite quotes from the episode:

  • “This is why in therapy they don’t let you see the notes.”
  • “We’ve been together for 8 years and been to a lot of weddings – I don’t want people sitting at a circular table, waiting on some chicken breast, and making small talk with somebody’s cousin.”
  • “I present as Alpha but I’m very deeply Beta.”
  • “I love a funny awkward.  If you’re on the spectrum I’m into you.”
  • “I was always into one-night stands for the intimate cuddle.”
  • “It’s almost a microaggression to tell someone something you like about them.”
  • “Ring the injustice gong!”
  • “I like when people have energy on stage and are happy to be here.  Don’t give me your monotone nonsense.  Go write a tweet.”
