You never know who you are going to meet at a Hollywood Job, and what kind of unexpected path you are going to take after a chance meeting. I started working at Disney in the mid 2000s and that is where I met JOHN KRENG
JOHN KRENG was real character, mild mannered office person at work, but just like me was a wise ass off the clock. Little did I know there was a reason for that turn it on after work spirit. John was a black Belt karate fighter, an up and coming Stunt Coordinator- but above all was a world class comedian who came up through the world famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip. He also has a comedy special on MTV.
Everyone wears many hats in Hollywood and he had tried on about as many as I had, so we went to lunch and got along really well.
Soon I was taking a comedy class with Amy Poelher’s Upright Citizens Brigade and John was mentoring me as I tried to find my voice and my persona at the comedy clubs around LA.
