Comedian Debra DiGiovanni has had an enviable career: she’s been awarded the Canadian Comedy Award for best female comic for the third time in five years, has been called the “Best Comedian to see after a Messy Break Up” and for three years running was named her hometown Toronto’s favorite comedian. Then there’s the fact that she was a finalist on the fifth season of Last Comic Standing, performs all over the world and has been featured repeatedly on Comedy Central. But it’s not all laughs—oh, no. The lovely lady has a long history with booze, pot, acid and the like (estimated number of times she’d done acid: hundreds). Though she quit drinking years ago, she’s a recent full on convert to sobriety, having given up pot this past January. Next on her radar of addictions to deal with: food. In this episode, we talked about the sort of dreams you have when you quit pot, whether or not small towns make people drink more and not being able to watch TV, among many other topics.
