Blog 007: Eileen Dobbins

Eileen Dobbins has been on the scene for sometime now, her delivery is fun and relatable. We are happy to present her here to explore and share more about what make her tick!


1. Describe What You Do?
I’m an aspiring stand-up comic and comedy writer. I write jokes, scripts.


2. How Did You Get Where You Are?
I started out in comedy the same way pretty much everyone does – I went an open mic and left the stage terrified and exhilarated and I was hooked. I just kept coming out to open mics and writing new material. Eventually, I got a little more comfortable onstage and I started getting spots on local showcases and independent shows.


3. What Type Of Conditions Are You The Most Creative?
I believe that creativity breeds creativity . I write a lot of my jokes at open mics and comedy shows because it helps to feed off of the creative energy there.


4. What Has Inspired You Most? Why?
I do this because it’s fun, not necessarily inspirational. I don’t think of it as art.


6. Besides The Stage, Are There Other Venues Do You Like To Express Yourself?
I consider myself more of a writer than a performer so I occasionally dabble in other forms of writing. My autobiography is nearly finished.
