This Friday, Evanson will play host to The Laugh Lineup at the Plymouth Playhouse, alongside an incredible lineup

“As for her own comedy career, Evanson has found herself recently spending less time on stage, and more time in front of the camera.

From short films to sketches and even a horror film, Evanson has found herself enjoying a new element of performing – and she feels a little guilty about it.

“Having fallen into a lot of this film stuff, I’m finding that it bring me so much joy,” she says. “It feels like a dirty secret I’m letting out. I feel like the momentum of my past three years in stand-up is paying off. I’m being asked to do shows out of state, getting invited to do the State Fair. And I’ve said no to a lot of it because I have minimal creative outlet time and it’s been going towards acting and film work. I sort of feel like I’m cheating on stand-up comedy, but I’m letting the joy navigate me.””

Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest finally crowns a female winner

“Evanson stood out in the finals with a routine about her parents’ divorce and a bitter breakup with a boyfriend. It’s well-worn territory, but Evanson delivered her sharp observations with contagious enthusiasm and an uncanny ability to sneak in one-liners when others would be catching their breath.”
