Comedian Ariel Elias turned getting attacked by a heckler at a show it into an opportunity.  She talks to Will  about growing up Jewish in Lexington, Kentucky, discovering stand up comedy by listening to The Bob & Tom radio show, starting comedy in New Orleans, moving to New York City, performing outdoors in the first summer of the pandemic, how getting a beer thrown at her by a heckler on stage lead to her late night debut on Jimmy Kimmel and why she was ready for the opportunity, and the change it's made in her career.
