LAUGH IT OFF W/ ALEXIS WILKINSON
Alexis Wilkinson has written for HBO’s VEEP & FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. She initially pursued a degree as a biomedical engineer, but made a 180 to become a comedy writer. And the transition paid off pretty quickly.
In her junior year of college she was elected as the president of the Harvard Lampoon, a historic magazine with a 140 year history. We discuss PC culture, dick jokes, having a fallback plan & the art of bullshitting.
