I brought a support clown to my redundancy meeting, ask me anything
A couple weeks ago, a story about me went viral. The general gist is that I was fired from my job, and for anyone who hasn’t been fired, what happens is they schedule a serious meeting and advise you to bring a ‘support person’. I did a bit of research and found out the 'support person' is a legal entitlement. So, for my support person, I spent $200 to hire a clown to come to the meeting and make balloon animals as I was being fired.
Somehow the media got a hold of the story and it got reported on by The BBC (most read story of the day), The Guardian, Fox News, The New York Post The New York Times, Vice and got a bit of attention here on Reddit.
I work in advertising, but am also a standup comedian in New Zealand. I'm doing this partly to answer your questions, but mainly because I want more followers and am desperate for your love and approval.
