“I knew I just loved comedy, and I think it was my parents who initially brought up the notion of me trying to do stand-up. I think I actually tried writing jokes just at home, just kind of sitting around. But it seemed like a very real way to step into the world of comedy. I felt I could do it, so why not?”
“When I first started, there was a real novelty element to it, I’m sure: “Look, there’s a 13-year-old kid doing comedy.” And I’m sure that bought me a lot of slack. So I was probably more confident than I should have been, if anything. I think was humbled as I got a little older doing it.”
