It’s not every day that a 6’4 1/2″ Jew in mid-career decides he no longer wants to milk his MBA’s diminishing worth and plunge into the world of stand-up comedy, but it happens once in a while. Take Jon Selig for example! Since Jon abandoned cubicle life, he’s been featured on the Daily Show, Grantland.com and the Montreal Gazette. He’s also the creator and Chief Conception Officer of Comedy Hostel, a brand which marries travel and comedy. Follow him on Twitter @jonselig.
