“My son is 13, so every day is new in a way, but also a lot like Groundhog Day,” says comedian Laurie Kilmartin. “It’s a weird combination of being yelled at by someone who used to cuddle with you while everything else is the same.” When not doing standup, Kilmartin has a day job on Conan writing the host’s monologue along with fellow comic Brian Kiley. She also does a podcast with Jackie Kashian, another fellow comic and Minneapolis fave. “It’s been four years now. We sit down every week and talk about how our sets went, standup comedy in general, and what’s going on in comedy. There’s always some drama.” Doing sets, the podcast, and the Conan gig doesn’t leave much time for a social life. “Between having a kid and my mother living with me, there’s no place to have sex here. There’s no privacy. Hopefully, I’ll hook up with someone in Minneapolis. Someone send your hot uncle to my show so I can get something going.”
