On today’s podcast I’m happy to have comedian Kevin Gootee. Kevin started his career in comedy like so many other comics ….. having a regular day job. His frustration with his sales job was the extra push to get him excited about having a career in comedy. He worked countless hours at clubs in the New York area and beyond. He now has a career in comedy as well as voice over acting work and hosting his own show on Amazon called “Comics Watching Comics”. If you get a chance you need to connect with Kevin and enjoy his work.
