NYC guy, Paul Hallasy has shaped and built his artistic career through writing, perseverance, grit, networking and reinvention – but especially writing. While some follow Hemingway’s advice of “write drunk, edit sober” Paul takes a different tact of “write early, edit later.” He has learned that it’s vital to get your ideas down on paper when they’re freshest – for him that’s as soon as he wakes up – and worry about culling and editing later.

SC 5 KEEP MOVING with Kevin Dombrowski
Kevin describes his brand of comedy as “personal” drawing material from his family and life experiences. He loves performing comedy on the road – traveling the country with his mentor and close friend, Carlos Mencia – but considers New York Comedy Club his home club. “New York just does comedy right,” he says. Kevin’s road to comedy is paved with dozen of odd jobs but never as a drug-dealer or prostitute – not that there’s anything wrong that. He now performs regularly on SiriusXM, hosts his Podcast, Just Joking, and is debuting his album, High on Molly. Kevin says the best comedy advice he’s ever gotten is “You’re smarter than what you’re writing.” The best advice he can give is “Stop overthinking and keep moving.”   Episode 5 By the Numbers: 05:09 | Terry-Ann Introducing, the very prickly, Kevin Dombrowski: Podcaster, Radio-er, Teacher, Comedian Host & Headliner!   08:27 | Terry-Ann/Kevin We’re having a baby!
