Making Your Own Lane in Comedy with Rob Santos

January 19, 2021

The world of standup comedy is competitive af, but if you can be open to making your own lane you'll get far. This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Rob Santos, a seasoned comedian from CT who embodies the spirit of a DIY artist. Whether you've been headlining for years, or you're still at the open-mic level, this episode is going to inspire you to take control of your career in a new way.

In this episode Rob shares:

When comedy found him & how his upbringing inspired him to express his artistic voiceHow he hasn't let COVID cramp his creativityHis comedy workshop "Each One Teach One" & the inspiration behind itWhy ALL levels of comedians can benefit from a comedy classThe importance of creating your own definition of successHis journey with mental health & how that's impacted his journeyHow he's empowered himself as an artistHis vision for uplifting the Hartford community & fellow creatives

If you know someone that's interested in pursuing stand-up (and hey, maybe that someone is you), I can't recommend his Each One Teach One workshop enough. When I found myself wanting to take stand-up seriously, his class is what helped me realize that dream.
