Are you ever too old to start a comedy career? It is a valid question, one that many people ask. There are people who start comedy at a very young age and people who start well after college, but for most it does seem to be a question that is met with a shock and a bit of a “no way” attitude. The answer to this question is “it depends” and that answer isn’t going to be satisfying for a lot of people. It will vary from person to person and your approach to comedy.
