Many comedy fans know that comedian Jeff Foxworthy left a job at IBM to start a career in stand-up. Detroit native Rob Little also worked for “Big Blue,” but when he left he advised others to do the same. “It was pretty cool, I sent out this company-wide email,” he explains. “It went to Europe Asia, Africa — I hacked into the system because that was my job, computer programming.” The email said: “If you aren’t happy here, quit your job and follow your dream.” While Little had made up his mind long before he pressed “send,” his boss was reluctant to let him go. funnyboneonthelevee.com.
