When I first began comedy in Denver in 2003, I was lucky enough to come in right after the previous talent crop, and right before the new crop. I guess comedians are like quarterbacks that way. Two comedians, Matt Conty and Harrison Rains took interest in me, and provided a lot of encouragement and insight into my comedy baby steps. While Harrison Rains quit comedy to become a tea trader in Singapore, Matt Conty is still plugging away in St. Louis, bringing his unique brand of ‘mostly crowd work’ to the masses.
Jest and japery aside, Matt is a great comic, and now (supposedly) a great dad. He started his own blog, the W.T.Fatherhood blog, and let me write a guest entry. I decided to write it about attachment parenting, since that is a parenting style many people don’t know about (or do know about and hate).
You can find it here.
Thanks for everything, Matt! I wouldn’t be where I am today (nowhere) without you!
