Alan Henderson

Alan HendersonSimply put, comedy has changed my life in a very positive way. My family and friends have been incredibly supportive since I was paralyzed in 2006 but there was something missing. I needed a creative outlet and arguing with people online wasn’t cutting it. I started doing stand up at the end of July in 2014 and haven’t looked back. Just this year Ive been able to open for Rich Vos, feature for Andrew Norelli and do the crowd warmup for Tonight in San Diego. Ive been a fan of comedy for as long as I can remember and was even thinking about giving stand up a shot when I graduated from Point Loma High School in 1999 (I was born and raised in San Diego). The problem is I was busy with work, school, surfing twice a day, playing drums in a band and chasing the ladies. I had zero free time, especially after my daughter was born in 2003. After I was paralyzed in 2006 it took me a while to adjust to the insane amount of pain meds. I would sleep all day and lie around in pain most of the time. I went to high school with a guy named Tommy Lucero and lost touch with him after graduation. I ran into Tommy a few years ago and he told me he was doing stand up. I told him I wanted to check it out so he invited me to some shows. I finally went to a couple at the beginning of 2014 and when I was there I kept thinking it looked like a blast. I started working on some material of my own but never got the balls to follow through and try an open mic. Tommy kept telling me I should give it a shot…. I finally did in July of 2014 and its been a blast. To this day I still miss being able to run around with my kids, surf every day, playing drums….. theres too much to list. After I was paralyzed I was angry and bitter about my situation, the daily pain alone would drive anyone insane. Stand up comedy has given me another reason to get out of bed in the morning, Ive met some amazing people in the business and being able to make people laugh is a lot of fun. Thanks for the support, hope to see you at a show. Alan
