The Public Speaker
Frisbie is also an established marketing and communications professional in the enervating world of Chicago advertising, and has been brought in to speak to advertising associations and communications majors all over the country.
"Comics will go anywhere. We visit spanking new cookie cutter suburbs and tired old river towns. We explore dusty mining communities in the Rocky Mountains and beachfront boardwalks on the Carolina coast. We see towns that have lost their purpose; where every other building is boarded up and fading signs advertise products and services that are no longer available. And then we hit the next town up the road, where there's a Starbuck's, a Boston Chicken, and a discount computer outlet. The lawns are mowed, the cars are new -- you've driven 100 years in just 20 miles.
"One week you're playing a comedy club for five nights; the next week you've got some corporate shows spread out between three different cities and three different states. You stay in every kind of hotel imaginable; from three-room suites with kitchenettes to odd little fishing motels with no cable TV and a handmade ashtray.'
"Entertainers call it 'The Road' and it's an addicting place. You head blindly off to places you've never been, to entertain people you've never seen, with no way to know what to expect. The crowd may be five or five thousand people. You'll find out when you get there -- and you can't wait.
"But it's all water under the bridge the next day. You check out of your hotel, you gas up the car and you go see what's waiting around the next bend in the road."
-- Paul Frisbie, Chicago, 2004
