Chanty Marostica Reveals Their Comedy Mount Rushmore | Bar Talk


I’m really sorry. Hey, I’m Guy Branum. This is Bar Talk at JFL. What’re you gonna do? [♫ funky theme music ♫] So, here’s my question: You’re here, not just as a comedian but as somebody watching comedy. Who are your comedy crushes these days? Who are you just super into watching? Ummm … I guess Ali Wong and, uh— Always uh … ah … ugh! I just forgot her name! (Guy)
Come on! (Chanty) Kristen Schall is one of my favourite comics of all time.
(Guy) Kristen Schall! Kristen Schall is always serving up weird. Yeah. I like it a lot. (Guy) But you wanna know what we’ve got? We’ve got a comedy partners … Kurt Braunohler here, Like, I keep missing his show! He’s doing a whole hour. Do you love Kurt yet?
I think that I met him the other day, he’s sweet… You should go get a crush on Kurt, okay? I don’t … that’s not my thing, you know? (Guy) All right. That’s understandable. (Chanty) Do YOU have a crush on Kurt? Maybe I have a crush on Kurt. Ummm … who is in your, like, comedy pantheon? Who is your comedy Mount Rushmore? If you were to pick — Now, I understand that you’re Canadian, this is a very American reference, But Mount Rushmore… (Chanty) I know what that is, yeah. Okay, because you guys know everything about our country
and we know nothing about yours. (Chanty) Yeah. And you know nothing. Okay. Who is on your comedy Mount Rushmore? Ummm … it’s Robin Williams, the whole thing. [Guy laughs] Just him doing various characters? Like, “Robin as Aladdin” “Robin as Mork” (Chanty) That’s problematic. I … no, I guess like, Wanda Sykes and Sarah Silverman,
Robin Williams and Tiffany Haddish. Oh, that’s wonderful! That’s a nice, good mix. Yeah. [♫] Do you think comedy is more important now than at other times in our history, or– (Chanty) A thousand percent.
(Guy) Why? Because nobody else’s voices were heard, except straight, white, cis-men, so now, there’s access to everybody’s stories, and you can … I don’t know, learn to laugh at what other people’s lives are. So when you, as a non-binary comic, When you get on a stage, In front of audiences that potentially, here, don’t speak the same native language as you, and have possibly never even thought about, like trans-ness, or queer-ness, is it hard to get them on board, to start talking about your life, or do you think it’s easy? Um, I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which is the most raci– It’s where racism was invented. Ah, so I just learned to write my comedy– Translate Winnipeg to America, what’s your–
translate Winnipeg to America. Where’s a place where they would just be like — instead of saying ‘Hi’, they’d stab you? Oh. I mean … (Chanty) Detroit!
(Guy) Detroit? (Guy) Yes, that’s — (laughs) (Chanty) Winnipeg is like, crappy Detroit. So I just learned to adapt my material so that I was always getting out in front of it, So I could out myself but also educate, and talk about myself, my trans-ness, whatever– I identified as a female, and then non-binary, and now I identify as a man, I’m a trans-man, so I’ve just been always able to adapt my material so that you can learn and laugh at the same time. Was it odd to — ’cause you were a comic before you transitioned, is that correct? Yeah. Was it weird to have that sort of evolution of your identity when you’re also having to sort of like present your identity to audiences? Yeah, it’s a lot. Talk to me about that! I don’t … it’s um … you’re– I’ve been transitioning in the public eye, like I’ve just been four months post-op from my top surgery, which is where my boobs went, And then I start testosterone on Sunday, So it’s always going to be very much public, and it’s a very emotional, raw thing to– (Guy) Can I just say, you going on testosterone? Hot. [Guy laughs]
(Chanty) Oh! Thank you! (Guy) I’m very excited to see what happens. I’m really excited to come back maybe next year or the year after with a really weird moustache! [♫ funky music ♫] That’s Bar Talk at JFL. It’s over now. Thank you for watching. Now I’m off the clock. Barkeep! More vodka!

  1. They/their pronouns
    Shaved side of head
    Mentions swastikas within literally the first second.

    Well this is a comedy channel, and I guess you are a joke so I can’t really complain too much.

  2. Non-binary is not a thing. If you're trans you have gender dysphoria. If you're happier living your life as the opposite sex, great! But this whole non-binary thing is just code for "I have no personality and I want your attention. Me me me me me."

  3. Well, today I learned that up to this point, I've never heard a story about anyting but sis white men.
    I guess characters like Ellen Ripley were just a figment of my imagination.

  4. That is a lot of insecurity, ignorance, and attention seeking in one person. Must have had shitty parenting. Those of you that breed, please be good parents.

  5. dam, i wondered why the dislikes then i watched, boy oh boy, this reminds me of billy madison when he answered the industrial revolution question.

  6. Why he/she felt the need to say ‘straight white cis men’ so many fucking legendary comics existed before she was born that dont fit her retarded imaginary little statement

  7. non-binary comic? why does your occupation need your gender label in front of it? you wouldn't say "I'm a straight cashier" or " I'm a gay factory worker" or "I'm a trans uber driver". no, you would just say "I'm an 'insert job title here'". if your a comic then just be a fucking comic. if ur funny ill laugh if ur shite I won't and it has nothing to do with how you identify yourself.
    side note, dudes laugh sounds like satan

  8. I don't care about gender, sexual orientations, religion, race or any of that, if you are an adult and you're not hurting other people you are allowed to be and do anything you want to… But if I get completely unfunny video on "Just For Laughs" channel I will always dislike it.
