Comedian Amber Tozer is so much more than a comedian. Sure, she’s performed stand-up all over the world, been featured on Last Comic Standing and stars in the hit web series nitTWITS but she’s also written on the Emmy-award winning show Mad and taken time off from comedy to work with autistic children. Want more? She had an advice column on Laughspin, has written for HuffPo, has appeared on The Mental Illness Happy Hour and much more. Here, she and I talk about how her moment of clarity, which involved driving on the Bay Bridge drunk and waking up the next morning fully accepting that she was an alcoholic and needed to do something about it. We also delve into what it was like to grow up with alcoholism (her father and grandfather on her mom’s side), drinking before Last Comic Standing and what she’s learned in her roughly six years of sobriety, among other topics.
