As he explains in this latest episode of Coffee With Creatives, Rick Younger identifies first and foremost as a Comedian.
But you may have also seen him in commercials, on The Today Show (as a panelist on Guys Tell All), or on stage in New York City — acting, telling stories, or singing.
Among other topics, Rick and I talked:
- The importance of finding your own path and voice as a creative
- The phone call from Tracy Morgan than helped Rick gain new insights into his writing and his act
- How he and his wife have begun to share their experiences, as an interracial couple, to foster more dialogue (through art) about race
- The awesomeness of working on a film set with the likes of Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton
I wanted to get this episode out a little earlier than planned, so that listeners in and around the NYC area, who dig what Rick has to say, have time to check out his upcoming show (aptly named The Rick Younger Show) on Friday, July 10th. I plan on being there, so join me and we’ll laugh at Rick and then later we can high-five.
