Forgive Jamie’s microphone. He was talking with lots of acting out so he moves it a lot. Also, after 36 years in Los Angeles, he still has a thick Iranian accent. I’ve known Jamie Masada, the owner of the Laugh Factory for about 17 years. This is the man who told me that he didn’t see me making it for another 6 years and crushed my dreams early in my stand-up career. He’s done it to a lot of people. But he’s usually right. He knows what’s funny. Hear the story of a teenage immigrant from Iran who has risen from nothing to a major player in the Hollywood community. Also hear his side of the Michael Richards incident as he describes what happened that night from a business owner’s perspective.
