JOLANE LENTZ & ALLYSON DEMUNDA















JoLane’s Responses To Allyson’s Questions:


WHAT WOULD YOU NAME YOUR FIRST STAND UP SPECIAL?


I’d have to call it “Jolene”, because the majority of people who meet me for the first time, like to sing me Dolly Parton’s Jolene song. It’s not that I don’t enjoy being serenaded, it’s just a little awkward for me because my name is “JoLane”, with an “A”. Which means I’m one letter away from taking your man. It’s my opening joke and always gets a good chuckle. I’d spell it in cursive with big pink neon letters, like Dolly would want. But I’d cross out the “E” and slap a big “A” right above it.


IF YOU TOOK WHAT YOU’RE CURRENTLY WEARING AND THE LAST THING YOU ATE, WHAT WOULD YOUR QUARANTINE NAME BE?


Pajama Beer.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SCENE FROM A MOVIE OR TV SHOW?


I loved watching reruns of The Carol Burnett Show with my Grandma Frieda. The episode with "The Gone With The Wind" scene. Carol Burnett is playing Scarlet O’Hara. Harvey Korman is her date and shows up to take her to a fancy ball. She doesn’t have a gown to wear. She runs upstairs and returns, sauntering down the staircase wearing a beautiful pair of green velvet curtains, with the rod still attached. Harvey comments on how lovely her dress is and Carol replies, “I saw it in the window and I just had to have it!” From that moment on, I knew I had to be a comedian and make people laugh. That scene still cracks me up every. single. time. Classic!


IF YOU COULD START A BAND WITH ANY ACTORS, FROM ANY MOVIE, WHO WOULD THEY BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU CALL YOUR BAND?


Will Farrell and John C. Reilly. From Stepbrothers. We’d call ourselves “The Catalina Mixers”.


WE KNOW EACH OTHER FROM WORKING ON THE PLAYBOY RADIO MORNING SHOW ON SIRUSXM, WHERE WE BOTH HOSTED FUNNY SEGMENTS. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF ALL TIME ON THE SHOW?


How do I even choose, there were so many. Definitely being the Roving Reporter at the live broadcasts from the Playboy Mansion would have to be some of them. Except for the time Colin Farrell made me follow him around for 45 minutes until he was ready to be interviewed and Stephen Dorf asking me for my phone number 4 times the same night, thinking I was 4 different women. Ah, good times!


LASTLY, WHY DID YOU GET INTO COMEDY?


It actually occurred to me the other day. I’ve been thinking during this lockdown and I had a realization. I always wanted to do something profound. Write a great novel, win a Pulitzer, contribute something worthwhile to the world and then it hit me, “Laughter Is The Best Medicine”. So from now on, I would like to be addressed as, Dr. Rae. Thank you.
