15 Comedy Legends Who Were Late Bloomers
They did it! It took a lot longer than expected, but by golly they did it! And think of how good it must’ve felt to finally achieve the success you always knew you could. Success must’ve felt pretty sweet to the prodigies as well, but in achieving something at an early age, they didn’t have to endure the life of a starving artist. The 8 adult roommates in a studio apartment, the balled up hoodie as a pillow on the kitchen floor because you were on the road and luckily found a place to sleep. Well, that’s the life of a late bloomer.
Most people don’t have their path figured out in their teens, and that’s okay! Some of our favorite comedians trudged through life for a while before finding their comedic passion. Some began their comedy path early on, but it just took time to find their voice and get plucked out of obscurity. Either way, these 15 now-famous funny folks were late bloomers in the comedy garden, and we’re thrilled that they never gave up.
