Comedy was more of a hobby than a career as I stuck to the state of Florida and ventured into Georgia once. As a parent, I didn't feel that the life on the road necessary for a full-fledged comedy career would be appropriate. I could not look my son in the eye and say, "Mommy would rather entertain drunk people than watch you grow." I've met many comedians who have done just that, and more. Knowing that my son is more important than any career is just one life lesson that I learned from doing comedy.
