Where do you get your material?
My best material just comes to me. My mind is always going and it can hit me at any time. I almost crashed my car trying to jot something down the other day but it was so worth it. I try not to force it.
What most important lesson you learned in comedy?
What I’ve learned in not just comedy, but in business, is that nobody is your friend. Anyone will love you as long as you keep money in their pocket.
So the stereotype of comedians being horribly depressed and neurotic is true?
I think I’m pretty normal and live a normal life, for the most part. have a day job in entertainment where I’m not talent and I think that keeps me grounded and sharp. I get bummed about things like anyone would but I hold myself to a very high standard because I know what I’m capable of.
Advice to your younger self just starting in comedy career?
I don’t know if I’d have any advice for myself but I’d like to give that terrified little boy a big hug and let him know he was going to become someone fucking great.
What’s your drink of choice?
Fiji water. Don’t ever give me tap.
What is your next upcoming gig?
I’m headlining at the University of Hartford this Friday in Connecticut
