In today’s Homegrown Comics backstage interview, Chicago native/SiriusXM Top Comic semi-finalist Cara Connors wears a fantastic shirt covered in pictures of dogs riding skateboards.

She also talks about Homegrown marking her third year anniversary in the stand-up comedy scene, writing jokes about being a queer, feminist woman, taking up space, and Sebastian Maniscalco’s enviable energy levels. Watch the interview here
