Podtalk: Liz Miele Releases New Comedy Special on Sept. 6, 2022 – HollywoodChicago.com
CHICAGO – Stand-up comic Liz Miele is a true comedy veteran, even in her current youth. She began her career at age 16 and has kept up with the evolution of both comedy and reaching an audience, as her previous YouTube specials have millions of views. Her new special, “The Ghost of Academic Future,” will be available on YouTube September 6th, 2022.
The thoughtful and provocative Liz Miele delights in her hilariously cynical riffs on ghosts, climate change, being attacked on the subway, her mom’s parenting style and more in her new special. As an early adopter of self-produced/self-released specials, ”The Ghost of Academic Future” is Liz’s third stand-up showcase and follows her previous self-released “Emotionally Exhausting” (2.7 million views) and ”Self Help Me” (1.5 million views), both available for streaming on YouTube. A touring headliner, Liz is on the road this fall across the U.S. For tour dates, click here.
