Emma Willmann has pioneered like so few have into the great unknown of doing stand-up in person in an indoors venue under the shadow of COVID-19. She also has driven all around the the U.S. of A and getting tested and quarantining from coast to coast. As this week’s guest on TCB Field Report, she zooms with TCB’s Jake Kroeger about her hopping from city-to-city and the caution she observes in an ever-changing landscape of even thinking about doing stand-up in person in these times. Also, they get into some quick-ish takes on the cancellation of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, the developing crisis at Ellen, Lilly Singh’s upcoming new sketch special, and an entire sketch festival going virtual from Austin, TX.
