Some people get lucky that what they love doing as a hobby can turn into a full time job. I would say that was true for artists such as The Lonely Island, Weird Al, and Flight of the Conchords. Music is not the most typical way to make it in comedy, which is why most of these artists were just doing it for fun and completely unaware of where it would take them. As much as I love music, and as much as I love comedy, I’d prefer to see Coldplay at The Forum and not at The Laugh Factory. That being said, I’d have to admit that there have been exceptions.
Being born the year I did comes with some disadvantages. For instance The Kardashians are going on their 10th season next year, which means that my generation has elected Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian as our TV stars. Lets take it back to 1986 where it was Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, Mike Myers, Nora Dunn, and Jan Hooks who ruled TV. You know how I know they ruled, because of how much the world mourns when one has passed.
