I did standup comedy for a decade, professionally,


Thank God for Ramen noodles, huh?


I don't get the reference. Are you suggesting that stand-up comedy does not pay well?

I was very well paid, once I rose through the ranks and got an agent. Some clubs paid better than others, but corporate gigs and political fundraisers paid extremely well, even by today's standards. I'd hate to tell you just how much, but 100.00 per minute was not uncommon. Of course they didn't pay by the minute, but that's what it often worked out to be.

Guess I should have joined the army, huh?

The three Stooges too. So I heard

With Freud its pretty well known. I think its usually stated as "all his Major work". Once I heard that, it kind of made sense. He really just comes off as someone babbling. If I had recorded all my conversations with my friends back in the day, I could have came up with the equivalent of Psychoanalysis. He did have some good insights and wasn't all bad. Jung might be more your speed.
