But, what happens when two comics hook up, or maybe even get married? I have personal experience, because last year I married a former standup comic who is now a chef. Some of our friends have said, “Wow, it must be a laugh riot at your house all the time?” But in reality, we’re surprisingly unfunny and hyper-critical of each other’s jokes.
So, that’s why I was fascinated when I met Chantel Williams and Dr. Brian King, two San Francisco comics who’ve been dating for a while and book a comedy room at Castagnola’s on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. I asked them a series of questions and their responses were both entertaining and informational.
Q: How did you meet and what were your situations relationship-wise before you hooked up? What were your relationships like prior to getting together?
Q: Do you write jokes with each other?
Q: What are some funny experiences while you've been together?
Q: Is it difficult running a comedy room with each other?
Q: Have you ever considered being a comedy duo?
Q: Are your arguments funny?
Q: Are you tough critics of each other?
