“I just wanted to have a job that paid me as much as loading trucks all day and let me drink on the job,” Brendon Walsh says of stand-up. His approach to work is simple enough. “More money, less work. I’m a big fan of that. Minimum effort for maximum reward. That’s my whole goal.”
Before trying his first open mic, he had a somewhat captive audience of city workers in Texas.
“One day I got up on the back of a flat-bed truck and said, ‘All right, guys, just so we’re clear my name is pronounced Bren-don not Bren-dejo, which is how I heard some of you pronouncing my name.’ It really busted up all the Mexican guys because I think ‘pendejo’ means asshole. Or mother fucker.”
