Comedy connoisseurs out there know about the fascinating world of one of the funniest stand-up comedians out there, Mark Normand, but today, we're not just going to talk about Mark. We're going to meet the woman who's stolen his heart and become a partner-in-comedy and she is none other than Mae Planert.
Now, if you've ever seen Mark's stand-up, you know he doesn't shy away from poking fun at himself, his family, and his personal life. But when it comes to his wife, there's a special kind of magic in the air.
Although the pair are relatively low-key, there is a lot of intrigue about the duo. Rumor has it that their love story seems to be something that is straight out of a rom-com. Word on the street is that it all started at The Stand Comedy Club in New York City, while Mae was on an uneventful date. In summary, at some point during the date, she locked eyes with Mark, who was totally slaying on stage.
The twist is that she wasn't interested in her date at all! Instead, she couldn't get Mark out of her head. With the encouragement of her trusty roommate (yay, roommates!), Mae decided to take a bold move and slid into Mark's DMs on Facebook Messenger armed with confidence and humor. The rest, as they say, is comedic history. The pair have been inseparable since, but even more fascinating is how Maw has crafted an independent career for herself.
What does Mark Normand's wife Mae do?
Mae, too, has crafted a career as a hilarious comedian, but she is also a writer, and podcaster hailing from the wilds of Massachusetts and taking Manhattan by storm. She is also a host of two podcasts called We Were Had and Risque Business News, where she and her equally entertaining co-host, Laura Sogar, very often serve up some serious truths with a side of wit and satire.
Her podcast We Were Had gives her the creative freedom to put on her detective hat and delve into the murky waters of unsolved mysteries throughout history through a totally unfiltered lens that is void of any sugar-coating! As the co-host of the Risque Business News podcast, she takes her audience on a rollercoaster journey through the juiciest and most scandalous workplace scandals.
In the words of their podcast bio on Apple Podcasts, they "break down newsworthy spectacles and scandals in the corporate world from sociopathic leaders to dramatic corporate takeovers." Whoa!
Mae's comedic genius lies in her ability to spot hypocrisy and double standards from a mile away. No one is safe from her sharp observations, and she's not afraid to call them out without hesitation. Whether you're into mystery or want to know the tea on the most outrageous workplace and business scandals, our girl Mae has probably got you covered because that's just what she does. Either way, prepare for a laughter-filled, jaw-dropping comedic adventure like no other.
