Drake Witham says, “Don’t quit your day job. Get fired.
” If only he had followed his own advice when he followed his dream of stand-up comedy, he could’ve collected unemployment.
Had he stayed on as reporter, his dead-on impressions of his editors or his sharp tongue probably would’ve got him canned soon enough.
“Once I heard a boss say, ‘I’m just thinking out loud’ and I said ‘that’s called talking.’ I’m pretty sure he wanted to fire me…out loud.”
Witham left on his own terms pursuing comedy.
“Which means I became a temp. There’s nothing more empowering than being paid to NOT care.”
Within two years of starting stand-up he won the prestigious International Comedy Competition.
The ability to point out the inane with the attitude that none of us have to put up with it and a dead-pan delivery gets him work at clubs, corporate events, cruise ships, and private parties across the country and around the world.
You will love his smart, clean material.
Your audiences love that he makes fun of himself. Pointing to his head he asks “does this strike anyone as a SUPERcut?”
The former journalist has become a regular on television. You may have seen him on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham or on one of his several appearances on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
He has performed for the troops in the Middle East and Europe.
