About Monica:

Monica Nevi is a native of Washington state, having grown up about 20 minutes south of Seattle, in the glory of Renton, Washington. A collegiate basketball player, after injuries ended her career she decided to pursue her strong interest in stand-up comedy. Years later, Monica is an internationally touring standup comedian, performing in festivals, clubs and colleges all over. She created, produced and hosts the documentary series called ‘80 For 80.’ She has been seen on FOX’s Laughs TV Show as well as in sketches on ESPN’s Sports Center. Monica’s debut standup album Mostly Finger Guns was #1 on the comedy charts followed a month later by her #1 comedic guided meditation album Chill. You can also find her weekly podcast “Dumb Pitches” on the Helium Podcast Network. She just recently filmed her first comedy special in Philadelphia, set to be released later in 2022.

What inspires you?

People inspire me. I love comedy for its ability to reach across different types of people and crazy things going on and still bring laughter. In my struggles, laughing has given me some sort of solace when I thought there was none. I am inspired knowing it’s possible for me to provide that for someone else.

What is your proudest accomplisment?

I am proud of all the things I have created on my own but most proud of finding more balance when people in my industry say it’s too difficult or impossible. I am so proud everyday that I can travel, perform, create shows and albums and podcasts, all while having home and a beautiful family. Taking my career and my life in my own hands and making it what I want is by far my proudest accomplishment. I love my job and am head over heels for my family and I know I can do both.

How do Superfeet insoles support your everyday life?

As a former athlete, the wear and tear I have done to my body is very confusing for those who were not life-long athletes. Although I’m in my early 30s there are precautions and considerations I need to make that others my age may not. Superfeet provides the physical support for my feet, knees and back that allow me to focus on my day and not my pain.
