Interviewed Daniel St. Germain at The Stand NYC
Daniel St. Germain sits down for comedic interview at The Stand NYC
What do you wish someone had told you about show business before you entered it?
That the best part of the business is writing a new joke that works. That that first laugh at a new joke is better than any TV credit or job you can book. That you can get that reward right at the beginning of your career so don’t future-trip about where you’ll end up.
What happens if they don’t laugh ?
I think about quitting the business and becoming a therapist.
What are you favorite comedy clubs that you perform at?
I like the Stand a lot in NYC. There are a ton of great shows like Hot Tub in LA. Punchline in San Fran and Go Bananas in Cincinnati are great.
Greatest Cartoon of All Time ?
Why is there so much sadness—depression, addiction—in the comedy world?
There’s sadness everywhere. We just make a living by whoring ours out.
What would you say troubles you the most about the world today?
That it could end at any second.
What is one of your more embarrassing memories from childhood?
Jeez, just come and watch me perform and you’ll get em’ all.
