It would be interesting talking to some people who grew up with a parent that was a standup comedian. The type of comedian like me that is rarely ever home on the weekend. I’m guessing it wouldn’t always be pretty. I try to make up for being gone when I’m home, but it doesn’t take away some of the guilt I have of being on the road every week. Kind of too late to make a mid-life career change, so the Long’s are making the best of it.
To my young kids, standup comedy is no different of a job than working at the bank or being a traveling salesman, which the Daddy’s next door do. If you don’t believe me on this, check out the video of my twins, Sam and Mallory playing.
