#8 Sam Tripoli – Comedy

I met Sam Tripoli in St. Louis a couple of years ago. I have to be honest, I thought he was shit-faced. Not that he was sloppy or anything. He just has so much energy and talked to me for 30 minutes about how Lady Gaga is a Satanist Illuminati agent (or something like that). But it turns out he doesn’t drink, he is just REALLY into conspiracy theories. On top of being a comedian, he has a podcast called The Tin Foil Hat with Sam Tripoli. If you are into conspiracy theories and want to hear a...


#7 Ross Bennett – Comedy

I went to this show called The Addicts Comedy Tour. A comedian named Kurtis Matthews put it on. He tours all over and does this standup show about being an addict. You don’t have to be sober to go, it’s hilarious no matter what (it’s in a comedy club, so plenty of people were drinking).I went to the show because Andy Huggins (EP. 1) was opening and yet again, Andy simply existing changed my outlook on life. I was a deeply troubled child, living in depression from birth until 22. (that’s how...


#6 July St. Juniper and Honey Moonpie – Burlesque

Hi. It’s been a little while. I wish I could say I went on vacation, but that’s not even a little true. I had to have surgery to remove some…stuff from one of my breast before it turned into cancer. It went fine, I am healthy and healing now. But the surgery and all the uncertainty that came with it put me in a very bad place. I DID NOT relapse but for the first time in years, it was really, really hard to not drink this all away. So this episode is completely different. It gets really...


#5 Marceline the Murder Queen – Sports

This weeks episode is a little different. I sat down with Nicole Morgan aka Marceline the Murder Queen. She’s a roller derby girl based in Austin, TX. She calls herself a “high bottom”, which makes me laugh every time I hear it. She tried a bunch of different ways to moderate her drinking, including putting washy tape on the bottles to keep track of her drinking, but finally decided that moderation wasn’t for her. She comes from a family in recovery, her parents even met in rehab! That’s a...


#4 John Rabon- Comedy

This episode makes me SO HAPPY. This is the first time I sit down with a stranger. It was very weird for my friends because I was walking around going, “Oh my god, I’m so excited! I’m gonna meet a heroin addict!” His name is John Rabon. He is a standup comic based in Austin TX. He just recorded a comedy album at the Velveeta Room that will be out soon. He also has a podcast called “Yes, I’m still sober” because he was tired of people asking. John was arrested 8 times, several of them being...


#3 Kay Sera – Burlesque

I recorded this episode at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in Las Vegas. It’s a burlesque convention and fundraiser for the Burlesque Hall of Fame museum. I was invited to be a judge at this years competition, which was a really big honor for me. I used to go to this event every year and just be a giant wasted mess for 4 days straight. While some great stories came from it (I banged an acrobat) it still wasn’t the best use of my time. It hasn’t been that way for a while now, and I thank...


#2 David Garrick- Music

Hi! KiKi Maroon here. Second episode and were already jumping into my insecurities. Why? Well, I sat down with David Garrick. He’s a music journalist in Houston and hits 3-5 bars a night, promoting as many bands and events as possible. He quit drinking which makes that extra crazy. Mid-conversation he talks about first getting sober and realizing he he didn’t know how to talk to girls anymore. Annnnd that’s were I’m at now. I stopped drinking while in a long term relationship. That shit’s...


#1 Andy Huggins – Comedy

Hi! Welcome to the first episode of Clown Interrupted. I’m KiKi Maroon. This is a new project. It’s going to change, its going to grown, and I have to be honest, I don’t know exactly what it is yet . Here’s the bullet points. -I’m a standup comic, burlesque clown, and special events producer. -I stopped drinking around 3 years ago. I say “around ” because I don’t have the exact date. I tried to quit so many times before, I just kind of assumed I would fail again and didn’t bother marking the...


Clown, Interrupted Teaser Episode

How do you go from being an alcoholic stripping clown to running a multi-media burlesque circus empire? Well..that’s a long story. While KiKi Maroon figures out how to tell her story, she is reaching out to other sober artists to hear their’s. Comedians, musicians, circus folk, and more talk about being sober in “party scenes”. Some just never tried drinking, others spent years in a blackout (KiKi, unfortunately, relates to the latter). Clown, Interrupted isn’t a normal “recovery podcast”....
