Is Channing Tatum Goofy IRL? A Conversation with comedian Kelsey Cook

Today, I am grateful to be joined by comedian Kelsey Cook. Kelsey is the daughter of an International Yo-Yo Champion and a Professional Foosball player, which made for a humor-filled life at a young age. She made her late-night debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, followed by A Little Late with Lilly Singh on NBC. Kelsey also co-hosts the Self-Helpless podcast with fellow comedians Taylor Tomlinson and Delanie Fischer.

Kelsey and I open the show talking about footwork. Once, she was offered $2,000 for a video of her feet; unfortunately, the buyer bailed when Kelsey was ready to commit. Then, Kelsey and I speak about peaking in high school and having the best time of our lives. With a Type A personality, Kelsey thrived in the structured environment. Plus, she’s mathematical when it comes to her comedy routines. During COVID, Kelsey has been able to write loads of material for her sets. Stay tuned as we talk about Kelsey’s first ever date, the app Raya, and Kelsey’s dating plan for her and Channing Tatum.

We also talk about:

Why Kelsey’s feet are just mediocre 

How to win an argument against a Type A personality 

The ways COVID has changed Kelsey’s comedy routine 

About Kelsey’s new perspective after her divorce 

The meth use in Spokane, Washington 

You can’t screengrab on the app Raya 

Whether or not Channing Tatum is goofy

Quotes from Kelsey Cook:

“If you can make me laugh, that’s super attractive.”

“Let us show you the scummy world of comedy.”

“I have been trying to take things one day at a time.”

“Get a physical planner – it has been a big game-changer for me.”
