When stand-up comic John Wesley Austin was 15, he nodded off in class. He told his teacher he was up late the night before, checking out a comedy club. If youre so funny, said his instructor, you can perform your act for the class. I did 25 minutes, recalls Austin. I slept as much as I wanted to after that.
These days, the Florida native tells jokes about cow hunting. I finally found something I can hunt that doesnt taste like chicken, he says. When you hunt deer, you sit up in a tree. When you hunt cow, you sit in a recliner.
