Who Am I ?
1: Who am I?
Christy McCabe. I am just a girl trying to make it in the big bad city of broken dreams..
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I am a hairstylist by trade, but I am creeping back into my first love: trying to make people laugh. I just launched an internet talk radio show called Friday Night Cap Radio. The show is a vessel through which we promote Brooklyn artists, musicians, comedians, writers, geniuses and freaks. There’s live music, smack talking, and lots of laughter.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
Grew up in Levittown, PA. Cut my teeth in Philly. I am going as far as I possibly can with whatever the hell I can come up with next.
4: Who is your biggest hero?
If you could mash up Joan Rivers and Howard Stern, I might have a hero. Do people still have heroes?
5: What book is your bible?
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
I love candid honesty, gut-wrenching laughter, dry crisp Italian white wine, jeans that make my ass look fantastic, open minds, cats, and old people.
I hate idiocy, inconsiderate people, routine, dealing with the rain in NYC, bad coffee, late buses, teenagers.
7: What is your raison d’être?
Wait. Let me Google the precise meaning of that. Answer: To try to make people laugh at inappropriate moments and to find the humor in every little tiny morsel of life.
8: What is your favorite color?
Deep Purple. Great band as well.
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
Al Jaffe. He is sort of a comic superhero…right?
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
My couch. But, if I could travel around NYC on my couch, I would have to land it in Laura’s kitchen in Greenpoint where we broadcast the show. It’s a total hot spot.
11: What turns you on?
A wicked sense of humor, a bright open mind, quick thinking, and a couple shots of Maker’s Mark.
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
Do you want to go get a glass of wine? Or anything that does not involve heroes of any sort?
Christy McCabe thinks a lot, laughs a lot, and really tries to understand the core meaning of everything and everyone. She thrives on good conversation. McCabe co-hosts an internet talk radio show called Friday Night Cap Radio with her right hand lady, Laura Stewart. She is a hair stylist.
