Ground Up 017 - Nathan Jaiyeola
Nathan Jaiyeola is a stand-up comedian living in Vietnam.
Eight years ago I found myself at Temple University in Philadelphia taking a class called Comedy Workshop. The course fell under my Broadcast Telecommunications degree. Yes, the same bachelor’s degree that cost me six-figures over four years.
That's where Nate and I met. We became good friends and soon hatched plans for tv pilots & sketch comedy videos. He was the subject of my first ever documentary.
He took an unconventional path when he decided to leave Philly and make the 9,000 mile journey to Cambodia and later Vietnam. He started out teaching students English, while pursing stand-up comedy to a completely different audience.
In this episode I catch up with Nate about our past and what he’s been up to since then.
