Whitney Cummings is ready to get out of the house.

For the past several months, the comedian has entertained her followers on social media by giving them an inside look at what life has been like at her Woodland Hills home: She’s displayed her skills on the basketball court, videos of her rescue dogs, beauty and fashion tips and behind-the-scenes clips from her “Good For You” podcast.

But she’s ready to get up on stage, even if it’s in front of a bunch of cars.

“I mean, we gotta do something,” Cummings said during a recent phone interview. “Comedians, we’re professional complainers and grumpy pouters and really want everything like it was before. But that’s just not going to happen right now. I think we’re finally adapting and going ‘You know what, let’s just do this for cars, let’s figure out what that looks like.’ There’s something kind of amazing about it and a bit triumphant, with everyone uniformly following a rule and making it fun and it’s been something that’s kind of healing. So the car shows are actually kind of nice for that reason.”

Cummings has performed at a few drive-ins across the country in the last year and is headlining Irvine Improv’s Drive-In, which is located atop the Regal Parking Deck, at the Irvine Spectrum Center on Saturday, March 6.

 

Cummings has taken the pandemic seriously, but she still contracted the virus over the holidays. She said she definitely feels better, but her brain is still a bit foggy. The most challenging part was in her head, she said.

“Mine was so bad that I haven’t really talked about it that much because a lot of it is very psychological,” she said. “I don’t want to be exaggerating but also don’t want to be minimizing it, obviously. I had it really bad. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a certain blood type, but I couldn’t walk for a week and a half and there was a lot of mental stuff. I was forgetting things and having weird spatial issues where I was not able to tell how close something was to me. I was forgetting very obvious things. It was really, really scary.”

Though she’s spent the majority of the pandemic at home, she’s still working. She’s hosting her weekly “Good For You” podcast, which is uploaded to YouTube and features her friends, fellow comedians, musicians and other pop culture icons. She’s welcomed guests like singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and drag queen Trixie Mattel.
