Chris Scopo Interview at New York Comedy Club

Chris Scopo
By Joseph Santiago Chris Scopo It was a Friday night at the New York Comedy Club, at 241 E 24th St New York, NY 10010b/t 3rd Ave & 2nd Ave in Kips Bay in Manhattan. It was the prime time show and the club was completely sold out with people from around the world.   That night we met up with Stand up Comedian Chris Scopo after his comedy show. We discuss being a comedian and doing stand up comedy.     Chris had the privilege of joining one of the most popular podcast’s in the country, Robert Kelly’s “You know What Dude” podcast. Where he learned valuable lessons in life and comedy. Since joining the podcast, Chris worked his way to become Producer of the show, a title he currently holds. Along with the YKWD podcast, he also is the co-host of Luis J. Gomez’s “Realass” podcast.

1. What other jobs did Chris Scopo do before starting stand up comedy?
-My first job right out of college was working in an office from 9-5; it was one of the miserable things I have experienced.

2. How did you know you wanted to be a comedian?
-I don’t think I ever knew I wanted to be a comic until I was actually doing it. I remember watching Dane Cook Vicious Circle when I was a kid, my brother and I used to quote that special all the time. I thought it was a cool job but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would do that for a living. read more
