Our Comedy Star of the Week is Paul Ash! Paul uploaded a clip titled "Quebec National Holiday", which got a fair amount of votes during the Canada Day weekend - fitting! I asked Paul a couple of questions:How long have you been in standup comedy?
I've been doing stand-up comedy in excess of 5 years. I won't say more without a lawyer present.What's the most important thing you've learned so far in your career?
If you think it's funny, someone else will too. Trust yourself and always remember... something, I'm quite fuzzy on that part.
Which comedians do you look up to?
Bill Hicks, Dick Gregory, Dave Chapelle, Louis CK, Bill Cosby... the list is quite long, I'm quite short.What's the funniest show on television, past or present?
Tough call, moments are funny but I find very few shows are funny 100% of the time... Until Picnicface get's their pilot launched. Until then, Venture Brothers, Greg the Bunny and All in the Family (Plus Trailer Park Boys and Just For Laughs stand-up - but I've been involved in those)What will you be doing with the $200?
Attempting to make my wife happy. "See, I've been out late all those nights doing comedy so I can give you this $200. Isn't this worth it?"
Congratulations once again Paul! If you want to check out Paul, he's in Halifax playing at Joker's from July 8th to 10th.
