Occupation: Higher education by day, laugh-maker by night
In 30 words or less, describe what you do all day at work: By day I help educate and prepare college students for the "real world," then I escape the "real world" by telling jokes at other colleges and comedy venues at night
What's your favorite thing to do outside of work? I enjoy making others feel uncomfortable.
Where do you get your coffee? Hot beverages make me sweat, but I'm down for an Iced Cappuccino at Tim Hortons anytime.
What's your adult beverage of choice? Prune juice. White Russians.
What's your favorite bar? Alex's College Spot (in) Alfred.
Describe your personal style: Outdated sweaters, shoes without laces and anything else women find irresistible. What was the last great meal you had? The "Billie Holiday" at Sticky Lips Pit BBQ.
What's the next movie you want to see? There's a movie coming out titled Donkey Punch — the title alone ...
What do you DVR? Heroes, The Office and ShamWow commercials.
What's the last CD you bought or downloaded? Man at Work, by Colin Hay.
Have you ever met a celebrity? Rochester's own Julia Nunes signed my ukulele. I'm kind of secretly in love with her — and by secretly, I mean I just told the whole city of Rochester.
What's your favorite book? I'm currently reading professor C.H. Dalton's A Practical Guide to Racism. It might be a new favorite.
What's in your glove compartment? Lots of tampons. The awkwardness that occurs following being asked to get my registration gets me out of a ticket every time.
When's bedtime? After Conan O'Brien.
What do you do for exercise? I have a treadmill in my apartment — aka an $800 coat rack.
What one thing — not person or pet — would you save in a fire? A fire extinguisher to prevent future fires.
What makes you cringe? Ring tones. Just because you like a song doesn't mean I have to hear your favorite Miley Cyrus tune every time you get a text in a movie theater, asshat.
If you could have dinner with any historical figure, living or dead, who would it be? Reference question No. 11. Someone set me up, Rochester!
If you could relive one moment, what would it be? That time I could've plugged my Web site to a large reading audience — www.ChetWild.com
Where do you see yourself in five years? Teaching college classes in creativity and humor during the week and performing stand-up on weekends.
