Eric Rosenblum and Jon Levine always love having new comedians on the Coming Up Short podcast because it gives everyone an opportunity to get to know someone a bit better. This couldn’t be better illustrated than by this week’s podcast with guest Artesse Lector.
Having only been on the scene for a few months, Jon and Eric didn’t know what to expect from Artesse, but what they got no one could have predicted! Artesse really opens up to talk about his personal and physical struggle (one that almost killed him) that brought him to comedy’s doorstep. Not only that, but how even as a man in his late 20’s, he has a perspective on life that most don’t realize until later, and some not at all.
This episode certainly goes down as one of our deepest to date and certainly one of our most riveting. I know that doing it changed a bit of my perspectives and I’m sure that listening to it will have a similar effect.
