After the COVID outbreak and everything strange happening around it, I think it's safe to say that all of us would benefit from some laughter in our lives, after all, it is the best medicine.
My guest today knows all about the importance of laughter as she discovered its power.
Through countless trials and tribulations, Candy left her career as a hard-working lawyer and followed her passion for being a comedian.
She has also been deeply affected by the crisis as all of her bookings have been cancelled, and now she is trying to map out a new normal as we all are.
Sit back and enjoy the free show, the insights, and the hilarity throughout this conversation!
I'm so glad to welcome the one and only Candy Palmater to The Inner Circle.
Let's dig in!
