This episode is NSFW (18+). After stumbling across a few of Rey Cabato's stand up comedy bits on TikTok and Instagram, I knew I needed to ask him to join me. And he did!

Rey joins me from California as we talk about his work and life in the world of photography and stand up comedy. BUT FIRST...

We talk about Anime! Rey talks about his youth and getting into anime, and what kind of anime he still watches now. He's got a lot of deep cuts for recommendations, so while you listen, be sure to take good notes. 

Then, we talk about photography. From how Rey got into photography, his work as a cosplay photographer, and his continued work in that space.

Lastly, Rey talks about how he got into doing stand up comedy. Not just normal stand up, but stand up for the convention scene and some of the jokes he tells. He talks about how he workshops the jokes, his stand up comedy win at Anime Expo 2022, and more.

If you like Rey's work, be sure to check out his socials below so you can laugh (and cry) at his work.
