Travis Oates performs comedy because of his grandfather Chet. When Travis was little, his grandfather would laugh a lot. Nobody was really sure what his grandfather was laughing at, but people let him laugh cause he was old and old people can turn on you if you question them. As the years went by, Travis started to do funny things so that when people would come over they wouldn”t ask “Why is that old guy laughing so much. Is he going to be institutionalized like your dad and your uncle Rocky?” Travis is in therapy.
