Comedian Robin Cloud is best known for her clever, inventive characters. One of her signature creations, Jerri Beige, is a retired New York City bus driver who continues to travel the city giving unsolicited advice. Cloud says, “She’s sort of a nod to all the old lesbians I’ve met in Brooklyn over the years and also a small glimpse into what I imagine my older self to be: a trash talking senior citizen.” A sharp and witty cultural observer, Cloud also performs stand-up at clubs throughout New York City, and hosts her own show, The Triple Minority Report, at Comix. “My favorite moment is when I come out after a show and people don’t know it was me,” Cloud says of her character work. “I would like people to see the crazies in the world and maybe take a minute to just say good morning to the guy, smiling, eating a cheeseburger out of a garbage can with a bunny in his pocket. He could be a real inspiration.” -CB
