From the time he was 8 years old, Lifeclass viewer Don knew he had a gift for impressions. Impersonating people like Elvis Presley and John Wayne, Don had a talent for making people laugh and performed at comedy clubs when he was first married. Although he had success in the clubs, he needed to make more money when he had children and lost sight of his dream. Now that his children are grown, 52-year-old Don wants to give comedy another shot but isn’t sure how to overcome his fears and self-doubt.
If anyone understands Don’s situation, it’s comedian Steve Harvey. While working to become a successful stand-up comic, Steve lived in his car for two years. “Everything I’ve ever done started with a fear,” he says.
