Though nowadays you have to go to an Improv Asylum show to see Evan Kaufman on stage, he used to be quite a staple in the New York comedy scene (or so he says). In this clip, we convinced Evan to come over to our place and take a little trip down memory lane, all the way back to his days as a rebellious 16-year-old, growing up in one of the roughest neighborhoods in Connecticut. Press play to hear Evan impart some of his famous street smarts. But hold on to your boatshoes, 'cause we're not in Greenwitch anymore.
From shaky new material to guaranteed-to-kill-'em zingers, Rate My Bit is comedy for the bold—one joke, one take, one shot.
