The Comedy Bureau Field Report Ep. 192: Kristian Mercado & Directing Comedy in 2023

Kristian Mercado has very quickly made a name for himself not only as a director of comedy specials (Hannibal Buress, Aida Rodriguez, Michael Che, Taylor Tomlinson to name a few), but an up and coming auteur in comedy with his first feature, If You Were the Last, a very charming take on an outer space rom com. This week’s TCB Field Report talks to Mercado in depth about the in’s and out’s of directing all sorts of comedy these days on all sorts of screens.
