In many ways, the idea of being "tough" and "funny" seems impossible. For decades the comedy ranks have been overrun with self-conscious, insecure, hypochondriacs who use comedy as a source of therapy. They're folks seeking acceptance from strangers by venting their greatest fears and emotional scars, hoping to relate to somebody and not feel like a monster. Rich Brockman isn't one of those comedians. He's just funny. A Montana native, and legitimate cowboy who grew up ranching and rodeoing, isn't trying to make a deep emotional connection with you, he's just trying to make you laugh, and he does. On this episode, we talk to Rich about growing up a cowboy; what brought him to California; how he got into comedy; and what some of his tricks and tips are for booking shows while still being able to get his hunt on, all while having a day job and two kids. This is a fascinating conversation that any aspiring comic should listen to.
