Comedy clubs and TV tapings are shut down, so local comedians are connecting with audiences online. “Comedians are going to find ways to be comedians however they can. I saw that SNL was canceled and I jokingly said, ‘You know what, I'll do it myself.’ And then before I knew it, that seemed like not the worst idea,” says LA standup comic Ian Abramson.
