Blaire Postman: Struggling Chartist

Comedian, quirky genius and overall rather loud person, Blaire Postman, brings her one-person show - “STRUGGLING CHARTIST” - to DC Comedy Loft for two shows, August 11 & September 15, as she launches her Fall 2021 east coast tour. The show combines Postman’s uproarious signature flip chart stand-up comedy pieces with running commentary about her life with long-undiagnosed A.D.H.D., and the lessons learned where the two intersect.

As one reviewer noted “Imagine if all the open tabs on your computer from a weekend of spiraling down Wikipedia rabbit holes were then woven into a cogent and brutally funny theory about the brain, performing, aging, Americana and The Self.” Then get ready for some hilarious twists - sort of like if “The Daily Show” segments were only about weird pop culture stories from the past 30 years, and were then all connected together in a seamless, super funny conspiracy theory.

Postman is known for her explosive, fast paced delivery and stand-up comedy that often spans unusual topics. Since starting stand-up in 2013, she’s been featured by PBS’s NewsHour (“the most DC comedy credit ever”), as well as in America’s most prestigious comedy festivals, at large, nationally known comedy clubs opening for world-famous headliners, and headlining herself for smaller, cool-kid, indy comedy clubs in every corner of the country.
