In hour two of Here & Now's May 5, 2017 full broadcast, Maeve Press went to summer stand-up comic camp when she was 11 years old — it didn't go so well. Just three years later, she was a headliner at a women's comedy festival. We talk with the young comedian about her inspirations, writing jokes and more. Also, what's in the Republican health care bill that passed the House? Vox health policy reporter Sarah Kliff joins us to break it down. And NPR's Eleanor Beardsley gives us the view from France ahead of the country's presidential election on Sunday.

This program aired on May 5, 2017.
