Episode 19: Las Vegas Is The City Of Second Chances | A Vegas Turnaround Story

On Episode 19, David catches up with Timmy, an old friend from his days of doing stand up comedy in Chicago. Timmy part-owned a Chicago comedy club that unfortunately burned to the ground. With depression spiraling out of control, a series of awful events leaves Timmy divorced, jobless, and homeless, during the painful Chicago winter of the 2020 Covid Pandemic. By some miracle, Timmy finds his way to Las Vegas — of all places — to turn his life around. In this conversation, Timmy shares his turnaround story of triumph against all odds, and how he reinvented himself, right here in Las Vegas.
