Beth Stelling is a super hilarious stand-up comedian currently in LA. She came in at #2 in LA Weekly with their list of “12 LA Comedy Acts to Watch in 2013.” She has an album you can buy, called Sweet Beth at her website. She also helps run a show in LA (Silverlake) every Thursday with three funny guys called The Business, which I love! Keep up with her on Twitter @BethStelling.

Serial Optimist: So Beth, what is/are your current…

Bands/songs you’re listening to?

Beth Stelling:  Lykke Li, Mumford & Sons, and Jack White

“Touch Me I’m Going to Scream Part II” by My Morning Jacket (Black Cab Session), “Stay” by Rihanna

SO: TV shows you’re watching?

Beth: PARKS & REC ALLLLLL DAYYYYYYY

SO: Movie you love?

Beth: Silver Linings Playbook

SO: Comedian you like?

Beth: Moshe Kasher

SO: Snack food (salty and sweet) you’re in love with?

Beth: Frozen yogurt can be a snack, or meal.

SO: Accessory of clothing you like to wear most?

Beth: I read accessory so I wrote: little black, plastic roses- stud earrings

But accessory of clothing I like to wear most: short black cotton dress with off-white polka dots, cap sleeve, cinched at waist

SO: Blog you dig?

Beth: The Comedy Bureau (and you guys, of course)

SO: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner foods you often eat?

Beth: I used to eat more bagels & croissants & scones but I’m trying to be healthier so I got a NutriBullet and it’s CHANGED MY LIFE (not a spokesperson). Smoothies.

SO: Toothpaste you use?

Beth: Crest Pro-Health. I have Pronamel in there for back up but it just doesn’t feel like it really gets the job done even though it’s supposed to strengthen your enamel. The Crest has those crushed up sea creatures to really get sandpapery in my mouth.

SO: Thing you’ll do after answering these q’s?

Beth: Eat an apple or never go to bed.

SO: Thanks Beth! Totally agree with you on Moshe.
