Comedian Jeff Rothpan: back doing stand-up
Comedian Jeff Rothpan has been busy writing jokes for everyone from Jay Leno to Steve Martin for the last 20 years. But this week, he's making a comeback to the stage - and putting words in his own mouth.
Jeff started out as a stand-up comic in Montreal but moved to Los Angeles in 1991. He performed for awhile, but then his comedy career headed down another path.
Earlier this year he did a performance at the Winnipeg Comedy festival and was bitten again by the stand-up bug. Now he's headlining at the Comedy Nest.
Sonali Karnick spoke with him about performance jitters and what he's calling his Comeback-Farewell Tour.
