Comedy Night Benefiting Children’s Music Fund

Final Tips given by Maz Jobrani at UC Berkeley’s 2017 Commencement –
  1. Always tip
    • “…preferably 20% if you can. I believe in karma and that what you put out in the world will come back to you but it also feels good. And besides, being stingy sucks and nobody likes you.”
  2. Find what it is you love to do and do it
    • “… and only you know what that this is… I realized my mom didn’t know what my passion was, she just wanted me to have a secure future because she loves me and I love her… [but] nobody knows crap when it comes to what you want to do in your life. Picking your passion for your life is not a secure choice, but if you can find that passion, you will be happy and lead a great life. So find that passion and live that passion.”
  3. Travel
    • “Go see the world, and by that I don’t mean a weekend in Cabo… Go visit the Muslim world. You will see that Muslim’s are not out to get you, they just want you to buy a rug.”
  4. Never pay full price for that rug/negotiate
    • “In negotiating, always use, ‘my friend.'”
  5. Kiss your parents every time you see them 
    • “… especially if they are immigrants because you never know, tomorrow they might be deported.”

I love these tips, especially #2 on following your passion. Join me this Tuesday at 8PM at the Laugh Factory for Comedy Night with Maz Jobrani to support both Maz Jobrani following of his passion of stand up comedy, and my passion of music & medicine since all proceeds with go to the music therapy nonprofit Children’s Music Fund.
