He went to university to study Spanish and Portuguese but knew it was a mistake and only went because his friends did. He dropped out, fed up of stressing over essays that were only marked on how well he told his lecturer something the lecturer already knew. Where was the creativity or originality in that? He loves the fact that stand-up is entirely about his own unique perspective on the world.
This resonates so much with me. You’re not even learning anything, you’re just seeking out information and telling an expert in it what you found… and because they’re the expert you’ll never feel adequate or competent enough.(via lookintothestorm)
