In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy
On this week’s episode, I’m continuing to talk about the events that have shaped my career and how I learned to be willing and ready to pivot.
I wasn’t clear on my direction when I started—I had no clue this was in the cards for me.
- I was willing to endure some things I thought were useless or miserable and look for what I could learn from them.
- There are things that happened to me 40 years ago that I can now use as stories to help other people.
I never thought that living under the pier would be anything good. I was just trying to endure and get out of there.
- Normally, people don’t want to be under pressure. But I can show you evidence over and over that peoples’ best work happens under pressure.
- The proper perspective trumps almost everything.
I was able to tour with Joan Rivers for two years.
- Opening acts normally don’t get paid much anywhere—but the huge benefit is the exposure.
- I learned how to treat an opening act from Joan.
- Joan’s manager also managed Cher. So I got the opportunity to work with her as well.
Tune in to hear about:
- My experience touring with Joan and the extreme generosity she showed me.
- The night Howard Stern watched me perform.
