Amir K (The Balcony Series)
over 4 years ago
We’re back for another balcony session, welcoming STAND UP COMEDIAN AMIR K!!!
**HEADS UP!! This episode has some tension from both sides. We decided to share because this is a real moment captured between 2 people who love each other.
Rick and Amir have a 10+ year friendship, and in this episode you'll not only witness the goofs, but also some of the tensions -- As I'm sure you'll relate, this is what it's REALLY like between two humans. You'll see by the end, these two really have such strong love and admiration for one another as friends and as comedians. TYSO keeps proving that comedians often have a particular knack for not taking confrontation personally (watch The Tony Hinchcliffe episode for confirmation).
Outside of the little bit of combative conversation, Rick and Amir discuss some pretty interesting topics to do with finding your career as a comedian. Amir details getting started at open mics and why his method of persistent stand up works for him.
The Boys discuss their first meeting and how it makes Rick feel good to retell, hard work paying off, not being passed at The Comedy Store, and how the last 4 years have changed them.
