How Jade Catta-Preta passed by and felt “unrepresented” like a comedian

Find her place – and move on. Jade Catta-Preta can’t wait to get back to work The soup, especially because she loves her job. But like everyone else in the world, she had to take a break in March.

“On March 16, I think we should film our sixth episode. I was really in the groove. I was like, ‘Yes! Nothing can stop us. “And then, like, has everything. In the beginning, we tried to do these little sips of soup from our house, “the 36-year-old host says exclusively on Thursday, July 30, episode of the podcast “Watch with us”. But unlike other commentary programs, it is a script show. A lot of thought goes into each clip and the things I say. We want to create a sort of bigger universe, unlike all older soups, so we decided to wait until we could get back into the studio. ”

The second episode of the show aired this week, and while she’s now talking to an empty studio – “it’s kind of fun to feel that kind of intimacy,” she admits – it’s back to normal.

For Catta-Preta, the soup performing was a dream job she got after doing stand-up comedy in Los Angeles for 12 years. From the beginning, however, it was important to her that it wasn’t a show to fool others.

“I’ve never been such a feminine comic that says,” I’m a woman and I’m doing comedy! “But you know, I see the world differently as a cis-gender man. I am open about my sexuality. I am very open about my nationality. I was not born and raised in America. So I want the show to be a bit inclusive. I don’t really want to poke fun at it, ‘says the Brazilian. “That was never really my kind of comedy in which I kind of fooled people. … I would like to bring people up and I want people to feel involved in the joke. ”

While she doesn’t really enjoy watching stand-up, the actress has taken it long enough to know what to discuss and what’s forbidden, in her opinion.

“I really don’t like giving people the feeling that they are something like that. Frankly, it was never my style. I remember watching comedy very early and every joke put women down, ”she says. “I started getting a little drunk and shivered! Don’t tell my comic friends. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I just didn’t feel represented like that. I honestly did it. It felt so wrong. Like any joke, it was always the same kind of people who were fooled. ”
