Kevin Bozeman knew it was time to leave his day job to pursue standup comedy when he kept coming up with the same answer to his clients’ questions. “I sold insurance,” he says. “People used to ask me, ‘Why should I buy life insurance?’ And I used to tell them, ‘Because I need a commission check.’ ” He started doing standup in Madison, Wis., where he went to college. “I got ripped off,” he tells audiences about that experience. “All I got out of it was bad credit. College loans. I didn’t know they wanted you to pay those back; I thought that was only if you graduated.” The people trying to collect that debt don’t seem to be all that smart, either. “They call me at 11 o’clock in the morning, and I answer the phone. They have to know that’s a problem.”
