Kenice Mobley's 'Follow Up Question'
Blonde Medicine is pleased to announce the release of North Carolina-born, New York comedy favorite Kenice Mobley’s debut stand-up album Follow Up Question on December 9, 2022.
On Follow Up Question Mobley covers topics ranging from her hunky Tony Danza-esque therapist, and her relationship with her mom, to a questionable one night stand that spawns a business idea. Kenice’s material, while often blue, is balanced by a genuinely inquisitive style that engages the audience and draws in listeners to her outrageous stories and congenial wit.
Perhaps for Kenice, this same inquisitiveness led her to major in psychology and history in college, with plans to continue to a Ph.D. in psychology and on to a life of research and practice. These plans were derailed nearly a decade ago when, according to Kenice:
“I started (doing stand-up) after going to a show with a guy I was dating at the time. Or at least, he said it was a show. It was actually an open mic. I didn’t enjoy his comedy at all, and we had to break up shortly after, but I realized, if he can do this, I can do this too. Then I started listening to stand up albums compulsively and started writing.”
Kenice argues that comedy allows her to take the same curiosity in human behavior that drew her toward psychology and use it in her standup, which means she IS using that psychology degree!
Describing her comedy in five words in a recent Vulture interview, Kenice chooses:
“Absurd, biting, warm, intelligently stupid.”
