Coree Spencer, founder of the Cinder Block Comedy Festival took some time out of her schedule to answer our Quick Six interview.


What has inspired you lately?
My political rage. You have to channel it somewhere, so why not with creative projects that help give a spotlight to minority performers!

If you could spend a weekend with a fictional character, who would it be?
Fantasy Grandma. I’m assuming they are fictional, but whenever we meet, they never drop character so maybe they really ARE old ladies? You can see them all weekend at the festival!

What would you do if you weren’t doing comedy?
If I wasn’t producing this festival, I would definitely have another creative project. I have some ideas for a podcast (who doesn’t?) and I miss making sketches and shorts, so I would still be producing for sure. Me and spreadsheets are friends.

Where is your favourite place to perform?
Because it’s hard to focus on performing when you’re producing a large festival, but when I am, bring on the dark basements with plastic beer cups!

If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play you?
Morgan Freeman. He can do anything!

What’s next for you?
The festival is working on becoming a non profit, which is super exciting. I’m hoping to grow where we’re able to do pop up festivals in other cities around America, too because why not stress out all year?
