“Even after 25 years in the business, I’m like ‘What do I do? What’s my voice?’ ” says comedian Todd Glass. “After George Carlin died, I paid even more attention. It changes.” Glass realized that he doesn’t have to pigeonhole himself. “It’s a little bit of everything. When I watched Carlin I asked, ‘Am I social or silly?’ And then I would watch him and go, ‘You know what? You can do both.’ You don’t have to do one or the other, so (my act is) whatever I feel like talking about.”
When he’s not doing stand-up, Glass is trying to get any number of pilots sold to various networks. For more than a year he co-hosted the podcast Comedy and Everything Else with fellow comic Jimmy Dore, but he eventually soured on it. He might, however, do another podcast down the road.
“I thought of doing something called Sleeping Over With Todd,” he says. “The guest has to sleep over. You have dinner, wake up for breakfast. Don’t have to worry about driving. Puts their mind at ease.”
Glass performs Thursday-Sunday at Funny Bone on the Levee. Tickets are $15-$17. Go here for show and venue details.
