LAFFEST: Congratulations, how does it feel to take home the big award?
Kevin: I feel like a million bucks….scratch that, a $1000 bucks.
LAFFEST: This was your second time in a row in the Top 6, how did you get your fans to watch and rate your stand-up clip to put you over the top this time?
Kevin: They got sick of me bugging them so they probably said to themselves we gotta get him to win or he’ll keep harassing us.
LAFFEST: What do you plan to do with the $1,000 Award?
Kevin: Straight rent homie.
LAFFEST: Finish this sentence: I knew I wanted to be a comedian when…
Kevin: …I couldn’t rap or dunk a basketball.
LAFFEST: We see big things for you in the future, what are you most excited about?
Kevin: Working on an Hour Special.
LAFFEST: Thank you and congratulations again from all of us at LAFFEST, any final thoughts?
Kevin: I really wish that I had gotten a giant sized check, I would have loved to see the look on the teller’s face.
