"You have to be a good person, and these days you have to fight for it." - Theo Von
Theo Von, comedian, actor, TV personality, and podcaster joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast.
Recorded at the hallowed Comedy Store in Hollywood, Theo shares his emotional journey from a troubled childhood in Louisiana to the very best stages of comedy. He got his start in college on MTV's "Road Rules" and later appeared on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and various Comedy Central shows. Theo continues to make people laugh around the world touring with his stand up, and with his recent Netflix comedy special "Theo Von: No Offense" and iTunes chart-topping comedy album "30lb Bag of Hamster Bones". His two podcasts "Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss" and "This Past Weekend" are must listens for laughs and deep, philosophical advice on life. Theo believes we all need to fight to be good people, and that's how he grew his wings to soar in the cutthroat world of comedy.
THEO'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"The world, and our God, or whatever you want to believe in, wants us to be fulfilled in some way."
"What you really want and need in your heart, I believe it will be served to you, but you also have some responsibilities. You have to continue to try to be a good person. You have to try to be of service to others."
"The worst part of life is feeling like there isn't a plan…feeling like you're out there by yourself just like a piece in the middle of a board game but nobody's moving you."
"Why does everybody have to be right or wrong? I just want you to be able to clearly express how you feel so at least I know."
"You have to be a good person, and these days you have to fight for it."
