What comedy most inspires you?

Universal comedy. I love making people laugh from every part of the world. I like to use my personal life and combine it with universal topics.

Which comedian most inspires you?

Before I started doing comedy, I was a big fan of Seinfeld and Chappelle. Seinfeld because of his universal material, and Chapelle because of how he combined his life and how natural and effortless he's on stage. 

When I started doing comedy and working at the Comedy Store, Sebastian Maniscalco was the one I looked up to because of his material, physicality on stage and how he handled his career. 

Which comedian scares the shit out of you because you know you'll never be that good?

No comedian scares me. I can just be the best version of myself.

Why and how did you get into comedy?

The main reason is that I was unhappy with my career choice. I graduated as a Finance and Int'l Business major, and when I started working, I was miserable because I did not enjoy it all. So I had a quarter life crisis, and wanted to find my passion, and that led to comedy.

What drives you to do what you do?

What drives me is knowing that I found my gift, and I was put on this earth to use it. It also drives me to be in a position where I can help people with my comedy, directly or indirectly. 

Describe your perfect Tuesday.

Sleeping good, Working out, filming, and then sets at night. 

Describe your worst experience on a coach.

Doing college gigs and driving around in the snow in a rental car at night. It's the worst because you're by yourself in the middle of nowhere and you start thinking about what you're doing with your life. 

Best sofa you've ever slept on?

Any of my sister's sofas. She has good taste.

Best piece of advice a comedian ever gave you?

Always perform the same way no matter what the crowd size is. 

Worst piece of advice a critic ever gave you?
Lose the accent.

Tell us a joke.

Knock, Knock..

What's the furthest you've travelled for the least amount of money/open spot?
