Comedy: Vic Henley

“I went to college and got a finance degree and was going to be a stockbroker,” says comedian and Alabama native Vic Henley. “That was just in case the show biz thing didn’t work out."

“I went to college and got a finance degree and was going to be a stockbroker,” says comedian and Alabama native Vic Henley. “That was just in case the show biz thing didn’t work out. I encountered so many idiots the first six weeks of trying to have a real job that I gave up and went right to the stage. I’ve been there ever since.” Following Bill Clinton’s victory in the 1992 presidential campaign, Henley had an epiphany. “I started talking more about politics,” he says. “It’s what interests me most. I’d rather do a joke about the crisis on the Crimean peninsula than about holding my girlfriend’s purse at the mall.”
