Hannah Berner: A Closer Look
With a resume that includes stints as a professional tennis player, a saleswoman and a part of Bravo TV’s Summer House series, the Brooklyn native is on her way to pursuing a career in standup comedy.
Berner explained that as a child, she had no desire to be a standup comedian.
“I fell into it through trial and error with other careers, but nothing has felt more fun for me than comedy,” she explained to Education and Career News.
She also stated that she has always been drawn to funny people and enjoys writing, performing, and making people laugh.
She was involved in drama class while in middle school, which gave her the confidence to speak publicly and pursue a career in the performing arts.
Berner expected to make tennis her career after competing professionally and as a collegiate athlete at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
However, after being injured in a car accident, she reconsidered her goals.
After graduating from college, she began making her own funny videos for Instagram.
As a result, she was cast in the 2019 Bravo TV series Summer House.
As a result, Berner was given the opportunity to co-host the Bravo Chat Room.
She appeared on the show for three seasons before deciding to leave and pursue other opportunities.
Given these opportunities, including two wildly successful podcasts with over 20 million downloads, Berning in Hell and Giggly Squad, it’s reasonable to assume the former tennis player is well on her way to ruling the comedy industry.
However, Berner pointed out that, like many artistic careers, standup comedy does not follow a linear path, such as becoming a teacher or a lawyer.
“There are no rules except that you have to write as many jokes as you can and try them out on stage,” she told the Education and Career News outlet.
