Talking With Cameron Esposito About Her New Album, Chicago, and Bowie!

Cameron Esposito has been called "the future of comedy" by Jay Leno, and has made practically everyone's "comics to watch" lists (Time Out, LA Weekly, Flavorwire, Cosmopolitan, The Chicago Reader, The Portland Mercury to name a few)." She's outspoken in her life and in her comedy about being a lesbian. Her new album, "Same Sex Symbol" contains her own unique take on some of the stereotypical behavior she's encountered from men about her sexuality. If you have your own preconceptions about what you think she and her comedy are about, she will challenge them. Tough, but warm, contagiously amused by the ridiculous behavior she encounters in the universe, and a true style icon in the making, we agree with everyone who calls Cameron Esposito a comedian to keep your eye on. Today (October 7) she's releasing her second album, which you can purchase at killrockstars.com. We talked with Cameron about the new album, why Portland is such a great comedy city, and why she's channeling David Bowie as part of her album release.
