Casey James Salengo is a New York stand up comic, writer, and actor. He’s a lovably funny guy who likes things simple and hilariously acknowledges his refusal to learn from his life experience. He is the very essence is laissez-faire, and it really works for him. He’s a master of carefully selecting the right words to compliment his theatrical comedy style, and some very good things have come his way recently. So this episode explores two themes: “word choice” in material and “opportunities” in show business.
