In this episode I talk to Greg Perritt about his journey with the performing arts through acting, writing, and performing stand-up comedy. From class-clown to actor, and stage performer to comedian, Greg has been entertaining people in one way or another most of his life. He doesn’t take life too seriously, and thinks that other people shouldn’t either.
As Greg mentioned, you can find Greg and comedy, including links to his YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram simply by googling “The Angry Texan” where he will be the top hit.
You can also hear Greg’s podcast “Kings of the PodCastle” at www.podcastle.org
Greg taught me that we really should take ourselves too seriously, and that comedy is always with us, even at the darkest time. We should never go out of our way to offend people, but the world would be a better place if everyone would lighten up, and not take things out of context.
Greg also learned a valuable lesson when he let someone he didn’t know well enough into his life. A reasonable recommendation in the day of technology; if you’re getting serious with someone, a $25 background check could save you thousands of dollars and years upon years of your life.
Lastly, in a world filled with nomads and homebodies, Greg sees the value in both. He believes home is where the heart is, but the road is where adventure and growth happen. In the never-ending pursuit of happiness we embark on every day, Greg plans to someday live in his hometown in Texas while continuing to travel and tour with his comedy. I shared this feeling before our conversation, but never articulated it until after.
