People often ask me how I went from being a pharmacist to doing this.
The first job I ever had in my life was being a giant dancing skunk at an amusement park. I actually really loved that job, but then I got fired because one day after I fell off a tall box in the middle of a show, and my giant skunk head rolled all the way across the stage, frightening all the little children in the audience. After that, I swore I would never wear a suit to work, because boy…let me tell you, those skunk suits are hot!
Once I got to college, I worked part-time as a waitress, where I got the opportunity to perfect my comedic prat falls. Yes…I broke a lot of dishes at that job, but I also learned some valuable lessons. For example, you should never offer menus to a table full of blind people. Nor should you show them the dessert tray after dinner. And you should most definitely not ask them for a driver’s license as a form of ID if they try to write a check.
Once I graduated from college, I went on to become a pharmacist…and quickly discovered that I had, for some unexplainable reason, just worked very, very hard to become a member of the most boring profession on Earth. In order to keep myself from falling asleep on the job, I had no other choice but to start harassing the customers over the store intercom system. Especially my ex-boyfriends.
And that is how I got into comedy.
