When it comes to college comedians, traveling around the country and being constantly on the move is something that comes with the job. To most, this constant travel would be a headache and a half. For Neon Entertainment comedian Troy Walker, travel is one of the best parts of his job. We sat down with Troy for this month’s Neon Entertainment Spotlight Podcast. We learned a little bit about life on the road, his roots, and more about what makes Troy Walker, Troy Walker.
From Lawyer to Comedian
Troy Walker started out as a theater major, but was quick to learn that it wasn’t the path in life he wanted to take. “I didn’t want to build sets…I wasn’t mature enough to put that much work into it”. After two years of Comedian With Wanderlust breathing exercises and tongue twisters, Troy switched his field to political science, which lead him into Law School at Denver University post grad. Troy is a licensed lawyer in Colorado, but don’t
look for him to represent you if you ever get in a pinch. “I’ll show up in a Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, with a burrito in my pocket. My first piece of legal advice to you? Find a better lawyer”.
Troy loves to travel around the country. He has a “thing for rental cars and hotel rooms”. When asked about his favorite places to travel, Troy leans more toward smaller towns, rather than big cities. He loves the process of getting into these small college towns, and the chaos that can occur when something as small as missing a train can cause.”When you’re in New York, or Chicago, people are like you have to eat here, or go to this museum. In small towns it’s like, there’s going to be a cooler thing inevitably.”
