“No one told me I was funny or that I should be onstage,” says comedian Kevin Bozeman. “But once I started doing standup, everybody was like, ‘We knew you’d end up onstage!’” He describes his life before comedy as a blur. He played Division III college basketball at Whitewater College, and after graduation he worked a series of what he calls odds-and-ends jobs. “Just a lot of stuff that made me unhappy,” he recalls. “I sold insurance. People used to ask me, ‘Why should I buy life insurance?’ And I used to tell them, ‘Because I need a commission check.’” He started doing standup in Madison, Wisconsin, near his college. These days, he likes to talk onstage about things that make people uncomfortable. “I talk about parenting properly, saying things about your kids you definitely don’t want to say. I talk about relationships, politics. I push the envelope.”
