“I’m just keeping busy with the standup,” reports Amir K from his home in Hollywood. “I’m getting onstage every night when I’m home, and that’s pretty much it. I’m just trying to get great.” Indeed, while Amir has a few acting credits on his résumé, his focus right now is the small stage. “Some people may get overwhelmed with all the other stuff that they think they have to do, because there is a lot of pressure in the industry to have a podcast or do acting,” he says. “But I think there are multiple paths to get where you want to go. For me, I’ve been really focusing on the standup aspect.” Touring as much as he has lately has helped him further develop his set. “Since I’ve been traveling I’ve been talking a lot about the experiences I’m having on the road,” he says. “My act is always evolving, but typically my newer material is about what’s happening in my life.”
