The Annie Altman Show is field research for Hum|Annie, a stand-up comedy musical philosophy show about how no one every fully "figures out" humaning. We're all much more similar than different, "better" and "worse" are made up, and everyone has something to offer. By celebrating the entire spectrum of humaning we can all grow together. 

There’s definitely some themes to this human experience - consciousness, choice, change, compassion, communication, community, creation, charge, curiosity, and courage.

Spiritually and scientifically, everything is connected. Helping anyone helps everyone. It’s past time to end food insecurity. The most effective way to minimize violence is to maximize resource equity.

Prioritizing resource equity involves openly discussing being human.

You’re allowed to enjoy yourself. Reminding you to remind myself.


Hi! My name is Annie Altman.

I love putting my legs up the wall, the smell of homemade cookies, and the feeling when you make someone laugh without knowing what you said or did.

When I was little I’d ask my mom for art projects. I still love making things with my feelings - movement, music, writing, comedy, and food.

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri with three older brothers. I went to a private high school and was super anal about mostly everything. I went to the East Coast for college where I majored in Biopsychology and minored in dance. I took all the classes to apply to medical school, before peacing out of that path while killing mice in a neuroscience lab. I worked in a psychology lab and then for a community supported agriculture company.

I did a yoga teacher training on the Big Island of Hawaii and moved there five months later. I lived in a Dodge Durango for three months and taught heated vinyasa.

I currently live in Los Angeles and work at a dispensary.

I can often be found writing down things my friends say, asking questions, and making goofy facial expressions.
