I’m Living In My Car!!!

Stand up comedy has been very good to me. Don’t get me wrong, I still live in my car, but I’ve made some improvements. It’s now a two story Hyundai convertible with a pool and jacuzzi in the back seat. Yep, I’ve come a long way.

The world of stand up comedy is bizarre at best. Just like others who perform solo, whether it be a singer/musician, an actor, news reporter, you work very hard trying to create an act that will be pleasantly received by the people who can make or break your career.

Not even a hint? Thanks for the information, Mr. Miyagi, I think I’m going to need some drinks. Lots of them.

You have to persevere no matter what obstacles are in your way. I worked on comedy stages, some large, many small for five years, for free.
