Comedian: Norman Towns


Tell me about yourself. What's your background?

Norman - I'm from PHX, AZ. I played sports throughout my entire life all the way through college. I played in Dallas, TX and my Montana where I was on a full ride basketball scholarship which allowed me to complete my degree. I majored in Art and minored in communications. Although I was very talented in sports, I've always had a comedic outlook in life and a passion for comedy. I would always make my friends and people around me laugh. I grew up with 2 brothers and 1 sister, but my mom would watch a bunch of other kids after school and I would always make videos to make people laugh and show my classmates, my teachers, and everyone I would meet. People loved them. Boy I wish Youtube was big back then. I started writing for some friends of mine that were doing comedy and would go and watch them perform the jokes and one day it'd hit me, "Why don't I get up there and do this"? SO I did and that is where my journey began.

 Well, you sure do have an amazing story. When did you decide to become a Comedian?

Norman - I feel I became a comedian in the first grade when I had a crush on this girl and I would always make her laugh. Or when my travel basketball team would go on trips and everyone would come home from school to watch SNL and Mad TV tapes all of the time, then would try to make my own skits. But stand up seriously about 1 year ago full time. I saw people making a lot of money off what I had been doing for free.

I'd say that was a smart transition. Why not get paid for doing what you love? So what else are you great at?

Norman - I don't know if I am great at everything though that's sound good. I have a lot of hobbies Basketball, Cutting hair, painting, drawing, Photography, music, and Producing is a big hobby of mine but my kryptonite's MATH. I asked my mom and she said I was great at surviving.

Hmm... seems like we have a couple of things in common! What's your future goals for your career path?

Norman - I plan on continuing to hone my craft. Doing stand up, Acting, and Producing. I would love to just follow my passions and I believe that your passions lead you right to your purpose. I just want to make a positive impact in people's lives. Make them laugh and be a good example that you can be anything you just have to be willing to work hard and if you love what you do, you will enjoy the work. So when it's all said and done I want more done than said!!

That was a nice closing Norman and it was a pleasure doing this interview with you!
