2.3: Radhika Vaz - The Unladylike Comedian
Find out how she uses her life experiences in her comedy. And her writing!
Tara and Michelle talk to the wonderful comedian Radhika Vaz about her memoir 'Unladylike'. Radhika felt unladylike while growing up, which inspired the name of her comedy show, which inspired the name of her book! We chat about childhood crushes, body hair, and being unapologetically herself in her tell-all memoir.
Radhika gives us some great insights about writing for different formats, and how the editor-author relationship is super important in nonfiction writing. What will she do next? Will there be another memoir about her life as a comic? Who does she want to be in her next life? All will be revealed in this episode.
