Dan Grueter is a former TV reporter and ad salesman who tried stand-up when he was transferred from Seattle back to Cleveland. He doesn’t miss broadcasting at all.
“I can’t even watch local news,” he says
. “No matter what town you go to, local news is all the same.” He adds, “You have to like what you do for a living. My wife works in a nursing home. She likes it (but) I never visit her work. It’s like a haunted house down there. She (says), ‘I visit your work all the time.’ I’m like, ‘My work’s fun. Your work smells like hot-dog water.’”
