Rory Albanese is the former executive producer of The Daily Show. He says he left the show not because the grass would be greener elsewhere, but because he was ready to go out on his own and try tending to a brown lawn. I could relate to his decision. I was around his age when I stopped taking radio producer jobs in order to try my luck as an on-air talent.
My conversation with Rory on the Classic Hits 93.1 Comedy Couch is a little different than the interviews I’ve done with comedians so far. He talked about the process of writing for television and about his plan to move to Los Angeles and to create a sitcom.
Rory joined The Daily Show straight out of college. He started doing stand-up around the same time. I’m looking forward to seeing his show. Rory is headlining this weekend at Side Splitters Comedy Club.
