This week I spoke with my friend Greg Hahn. He has appeared on Conan O'Brien, Comedy Central, and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen. He is absolutely one of the funniest working stand up comedians today by any set of standards. His high energy act is at times absurd, but always leaves audiences with there mouth's open and their sides hurting. This week we spoke about his investing advice, his plan after he makes a billion dollars, and his thoughts on healthcare.
Andrew: What is happening in your life?
Greg: Right now it's nothing but VD and pregnancy scares.
Andrew: [Laughs] Do you have any stock picks to share with our readers?
Greg: I moved all my money into Berkshire Hathaway. I might has well have put it into a bank. That stock doesn't move. Shit man, what do you want Berkshire Hathaway or a shoebox?
Greg: Warren Buffett, the world's best investor, or in my mattress; the same!
Andrew: [Laughs] If I handed you a billion dollars what would you do first?
Greg: You would never see me again. I would have some good looking young girl running back and forth from the house to the boat dock giving me iced tea.
Andrew: [Laughs] What is the worst part of the road?
Greg: The worst part of the road is being wedged into the window and sitting next to some fat person.
Andrew: What is the best part of the road?
Greg: The best part is going out with some girl that I am in no way am I qualified to date, but can because I got laughs on stage. Can you rewrite and make it funny?
Andrew: [Laughs] What is your thought on the healthcare bill?
Greg: I would like to take that big gavel and hit Nancy Pelosi in the teeth with it.
Andrew: What advice do you have for single woman looking for a man?
Greg: Come to my show.
Andrew: Why should people see your live act?
Greg: The goal of watching me is to forget anything important. I just want people to sit there and order a drink and think how it's great NOT to be that guy. Being at my show is like being at a party with people you really like after having five beers. Put that in there!
