Learn more about Lucas from this interview...

When did you first become interested in comedy?

I’ve always been very interested in comedy.  When I was young, I would borrow comedy tapes from our local library and spend hours listening to them.  Rodney Dangerfield and Henny Youngman were my favorite.  When I was in the 7th grade my grandparents took me on a cruise and I entered a talent show.  I told about 10 minutes of jokes and it was a huge hit.  I loved the feeling of people laughing at me.  It just felt right, like I was supposed to do something where I was in front of people.

 

What do you love about comedy?

I love when I tell a joke about my life and after the show somebody comes up to me and says, “We’ve been though that!”  or “That’s happened to us!”  Comedy is everywhere in life.  I feel that I have a great way of finding the funny in everyday situations and making people laugh about it.

 

How did you become a full time comedian?

I had been doing comedy for about 7 years and I attended a college conference in Pennsylvania.  I booked about 30 schools and replaced my teaching income that weekend.   It was a terrifying time in my life.  I knew that financially I was able to quit my day job and pursue my dream of being a full time comedian, but I was scared.  I was giving up a salary, healthcare and retirement.  I talked it over with my wife and she was so supportive.  She said, “Go for it”.  “You’ll only regret it later on in life if you don’t take this chance now.”  It was the best decision every. 

 

What was it like being a teacher and a comedian?

It was great.   My students knew that I was a comedian on the weekends and during the summer and they always wanted me to tell them jokes and do impressions for them.  They would ask where I was performing and how the crowds were.  It was a really exciting time of my life.  We had a blast my last year too.  It’s a great feeling when you know you’re not returning to a job because you can just have fun.  I mean, what was the principal going to do fire me?   We did a lot of “fun projects” the last year I taught and my students did fantastic on the state tests at the end of the year.  It was a great way to leave my professional career. 

 

What’s the scariest thing about being a stand up?

Most people would sat getting up in front of people.  Public speaking is the number one phobia of Americans.  Now take it a step further and try to be funny while talking to people you’ve never met. That’s pretty scary.  Also, I think a lot of people worry about looking silly in front of friends or family.  I’ve never had that problem.   I know 90% of the time I look like an idiot.  You just have to be confident enough to laugh it off. 

 

Where are you performing next?

My wife and I are doing a fundraiser on January 31st at Liberty Laughs Comedy Club in Fredericksburg, VA.  We have decided to adopt a baby and are having a fundraiser to help off set some of the medical and legal cost associated with adopting a baby.  The show is going to be fantastic.  Tickets are only 10 dollars and the show starts at 8:00pm.  You can get tickets by calling 540-710-7467.
