We’ve been huge fans of comedian Laurie Kilmartin for years– and for good reasons. She’s a sharp, incisive comedian, an excellent writer and an all-around cool human being. And that’s why Laughspin contributor Crisman Richards sat down with Kilmartin before a recent set at the Punchline in San Francisco. The two chat about her experiences as a staff writer for Conan, her evolution as a stand-up, the problem with not being able to joke about abortion on television and much more. Check it out below!

For more on Laurie, check out and buy her book Sh*tty Mom and her stellar album Five Minutes To Myself.
