Troy Conrad joins the show to talk about how he went from his early years as a stand up comic, to filmmaking, to producing a TV series, to photographing some of the biggest names in comedy and forming a unique relationship with the legendary Comedy Store in LA.  Growing up in Phoenix, Troy was always inspired by the late night comedy of David Letterman, but also had a curious mind on how things worked and became fascinated by his Dad's cameras and slide shows.  Throughout college, while working on his degree, Troy pursued stand up comedy and became a frequent local and touring act.  Before long he made the move to Los Angeles to further chase his dream.  It would be in LA however that Troy would start playing around with filmmaking and create several shorts films that would eventually lead to his role in producing the TV show and live touring act Setlist: Stand Up Without a Net.  During all this time Troy continued to love photography and soon found the opportunity to shoot the new phenomenon of Roast Battle at the Comedy Store which would lead him to a unique opportunity to start shooting many of his long time friends and other comedy heroes inside the famed walls of one of the country's most respected clubs.  During our conversation we talk about some of the unique challenges that come with shooting live comedy, how stand up comedy helped him let go of his fears of failure, how he stays organized and motivated while trying to juggle so many creative pursuits, and the advice he gives to others trying to chase their own dreams.
