BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s deputy health commissioner is doing important work to help fight COVID-19 in Vermont, but it’s not all work and no play. For the last six years, Tracy Dolan has been performing standup comedy.

Friday, Dolan and six other Vermont comedians will be taking the “Zoom” stage in a live online standup special. Dolan says she’s looking forward to the opportunity to share a laugh and switch gears from her other job.

“Getting together with comedians, spending a lot of time in Vermont comedy clubs was a big part of my social life outside work. I get to luckily still do comedy sometimes this way and it’s not the best, but you know it can still be fun. Audiences still enjoy it and we as comedians still have a great time,” said Dolan.

Our Scott Fleishman was able to catch up with all seven comedians involved in Friday’s show: Gladys Dee, Jared Hall, Marion Fisher, Jeremy Rayburn, Maggie Lenz, Gordon Clark and Tracy Dolan. They talked about performing comedy online versus in-person. Watch the videos to see.
