Episode 361: (Bonus) Gastor Almonte

2Sep

Five years ago, Gastor Almonte quit his job and went all in on standup. It was no small commitment from a married man with two kids and a six figure sales job. But a supportive wife, encouraging family members and his position as a landlord in East New York, Brooklyn allowed him to take the leap. With the recent release of his debut album, Immigrant Made, things appear to be paying off.

The comedian joined us to discuss his life in comedy, love of his neighborhood and prioritizing happiness.
