Rob O'Reilly is a hilarious stand-up comedian (I loved his Brian Scalabrine joke) who has performed hundreds of shows, written jokes for Jimmy Fallon and MTV's Ridiculousness, and was named one of LA Weekly's Top 10 Comedy Acts to Watch in 2012.

He's also a full-time MBA student at the USC Marshall School of Business in Los Angeles, California where he's looking to explore other career options in the entertainment industry.

In this episode we talk about how he got his start in comedy, his experience writing jokes for a variety of big name acts, his creative process, and ultimately why he decided to get an MBA.
