Success Stories

Another Killer Stand-up comedian has blasted onto the stand-up comedy scene in record time — so let me introduce you to 30 year old Miami comedian Johnny Trabs in Miami, Florida.

Johnny is no stranger to live performing or television as a part of an award winning sketch comedy duo with comedian Yamil Piedra called “A Pair of Nuts” who have been featured on Last Call w/ Carson Daly, BET, NBC, Discovery Channel, Mega TV and all over the internet.

But last year after much prodding from a cousin, successful sketch and improv comedian Johnny Trabs decided to take a shot at stand-up comedy in June 2009 — which is a whole different ball game than sketch and improv comedy. (read more…)

Patrick Andonie is a 52 year old accountant from New Orleans, Louisiana who had wanted to take a shot at stand-up comedy for years but could never seem to muster the courage.

Soon after his first open mic performance he became a Killer Stand-up Online Course Member and according to Patrick, began to experience immediate improvement in his stand-up comedy routine once he actually started applying the techniques and strategies provided in my online course.

Here is a video of Patrick performing a tight 3 minute set for an audience of about 80 people at the Icehouse in Pasadena August 2017: (read more…)

Note: This story has been updated and contains an audio interview because Killer Stand-up comedian Gid Pool been featured in a “Your Life Calling With Jane Pauley” segment produced by AARP (video of the segment is provided below)!

If you are at an age where you have ever wondered if you were too old to become a stand-up comedian, please allow me to introduce you to comedian Gid Pool.

Gid was 61 years old when he started his stand-up comedy career after taking a stand-up comedy class in March 2007.

Later that summer, Gid got his hands on the Killer Stand-up Comedy System. (read more…)
