Atsuko Okatsuka once did stand-up during an earthquake – but that’s not even the craziest thing that’s happened in her life. Atsuko talks to me about turning the things that made her feel different as a kid into superpowers. Plus, she explains why she thinks comedy is a service, getting kicked out of church choir, and her upcoming HBO special “The Intruder.”

Please note, Funny Cuz It’s True contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.
