TuRae Gordon’s First Time

When you’re a brand new comic, there’s nothing better than a true pro taking you under their wing, and the first person to do that for me was TuRae Gordon. I saw him perform at Temple University before I even started stand-up, and once I did, he befriended me, gave me opportunities and two monumental pieces of advice that I still think about today. In this episode, we talk about the club where we started, The Laff House, comedy in Philly in the early 90s, Patrice Oneal, share some heckler stories and how comics can never stop talking about comedy.
