Ep. 206: Ian Lara is just a regular Dominican kid from Queens, New York. Youngest of five and born to immigrant parents since a young age being funny became a way of life. He started comedy right after college after being told by some really successful lawyers that he should skip going to law school because it was a waste of time. He has loved every second since. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worst shows in New York City, or he’s on the road at a club or college near you. He’s is the host of the “OUT OF TUNE” music gameshow, featured in “Variety” and “Cosmopolitan”, and this year he taped a set for “Comedy Central Stand up Featuring Ian Lara”. Ian Lara might become a household name but his real dream is to one day get big enough where he can wear those big cowboy hats Pharrell wears to awards shows.
Listen as Ian talks to Alex about his journey into comedy, and his own Afro-Latino experience.
