Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons has been banging up comedy stages for the last 20 years. You could say that he — metaphorically — has degree in comedy. However, what you may now know is that he literally has a degree in English– and now he’s using it. On Nov. 9, the veteran funnyman’s first book Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons: Tales of Redemption from an Irish Mailbox hits store shelves– both physical and virtual.
In the memoir-esque tome, Fitzsimmons tells his story of being raised in a highly dysfunctional Irish-American family, but he uses a huge collection of disciplinary letters he and his family kept throughout the years as a launching pad for his unique brand of storytelling. Punchline Magazine‘s Matthew Gill — friend him on Facebook — recently caught up with Greg at his home in California to chat about birthing a book, his career evolution and much more.
