MILF Podcast - Moms I'd Like to Follow

May 2, 2019

Jennifer welcomes comedian, television writer, and mother, Andrea Abbate. Andrea started out as a stand-up with a dangerous sense of humor. In fact, one review of her comedy stated, “Her jokes are like sugar coated bullets. She turns difficult experiences into piercing, original comedy.” She has performed on numerous television shows as a comedian and has sold dozens of pilots to MTV, AMC, Showtime and HBO.

In this episode, Andrea talks about her childhood, as well as her experiences with eating disorders and drug addiction. While any one of these might devastate the average person, Andrea is a different breed. Her ability to overcome adversity through determination and perseverance is second to none. Andrea and Jennifer talk about suicide, smoking, and writing. They talk about Andrea’s household, one that consists of four sons, four dogs, four chickens and one supportive husband. Yet with all this chaos in her life, she still finds time to give back to her community. One of her passion projects includes devoting herself to helping others get off drugs.
