Tripp Crosby Interview: A Conference Call in Real Life Episode #28

Aaron McHugh


I first came across comedian and director Tripp Crosby’s work from his YouTube sketch titled A Conference Call in Real Life. Conference calls are a very relatable topic for most working professionals. Have you ever read those statistics about how many years we spend of our lives sitting in traffic? I am pretty sure I’ve spent a few years of my life on conference calls.

Tripp and Tyler’s help us laugh at ourselves in this hilarious comedic parody depicting the experience of a conference call. The first time I watched it I think I laughed so hard I spit my coffee out onto my keyboard. I really enjoyed my conversation with Tripp.

Tripp is a real guy living a real story with a level of authenticity that will invite you in. I believe you will really enjoy hearing about his career journey and his level of transparency.
