Erin Foley raises the bar for comedy


From stand-up to the big screen, Erin Foley has been making us laugh for over a decade with her comedic, acting and writing skills. In October she’s bringing her Lower the Bar Tour to the Northwest with two shows in Seattle followed by two shows in Portland.

What made you get into comedy? Were you always funny?

I started out doing improv comedy in college which brought me to New York City. My shows were at 6:30 p.m. at New York Comedy Club, a small stand-up comedy club on the east side. After my show I would stay and watch stand up for hours. I had never seen or even heard of stand-up comedy before moving to New York City. I loved it instantly, quit improv and started writing jokes nonstop. Without sounding like a d-bag, yes I would say I’ve always been funny.
