Comedian , Wife and Mother of Triplets, "Lisa Gilbert" is Bringing Laughter to a Hurting World!

Hi Lisa! Where did it all begin for you?

I’m a San Diego BASED Comedian. I have no real acting or stage background other than local talent shows as a kid. Over the past 6 years, I’ve been able to do two Indie Films, a TV commercial, and a lot of comedy.

Where are you from and how did you get started in the comedy industry?

I was raised in San Diego. At 44 I got married and pregnant on my honeymoon with triplets! With so much instant material I couldn’t put off my dream any longer. Since then, I have been in two Indie films and one commercial. This was the start of a lifelong dream of becoming a Comedian. I’ve always loved the stage and participated in talent shows, and acting classes at a young child. My ability to make people laugh, came naturally was natural to me. But it wasn’t until I became a mother of three that I decided to try the Comedy stage. A fellow comedian offered me a spot on a show. I stepped into the light in April 2015, and never looked back. Here I am doing what I love.

What was your most memorable moment in your career?

I received a standing ovation; unforgettable. I’ve shared the stage with a personal hero Jay Leno.

What was your most challenging moment?

Comedy/Life balance. I’m a wife and mother first. Sometimes I’m not able to do all shows. Sometimes it’s hard to be away from my kids for days at a time and still be excited about the opportunity to be on stage.

Who are your influences?

I would say that local comedians who are working hard to create laughter inspire me. Any help I can give newer comedians find their voice drives me, and there have been many that have done the same for me.

If you could do a show with them and or have someone, write a joke for you, who would it be?

If I had to choose a comedian to do a show with, that person would be, Dave Chapelle. I just feel like he would be real with me. I love his honest approach to comedy. I admire his ability to be real and genuine. So yes, that person would be Dave Chapelle.

What was your most embarrassing moment while at a live performance or interview?

As of to today, I am grateful to say that I haven't had any embarrassing moments on stage. Things have pretty much went smoothly. Whew!

What are your either weird habits or traditions before performing live on stage?

I air-box to my own internal theme music before I go on stage.

What advice would you like to give to upcoming comedians?

I think its very important to record every set and listen for the areas of my show where there is laughter and non-laughter. This helps me to evaluate my show in order to find things that work and don't work.
