Gig Faces: Comedian Fred Minix on the joys and challenges of stand-up

Fred Minix, 26, hails from Eldon and now makes his home in Columbia. Minix works as a stand-up comedian and does a variety of odd jobs to support himself.

“Having an 8 to 5 is kind of hard when you do that,” Minix says of his work in comedy.

But he says the feeling of a good show makes the challenges of a career in comedy worth it.

“When you’re just in a room full of people laughing,” Minix said, “it just makes me, personally, feel really good.”
