Lou DiMaggio was born to be a comedian. As a rising talent and regular at the iconic Catch a Rising Star comedy club in New York City, he worked alongside some of the very best in the business, including Chris Rock, Larry David, Ray Romano and Colin Quinn.

But, upon moving to Los Angeles in 1989, DiMaggio (no relation to the baseball great) stopped doing stand-up comedy forever and, in turn, left behind an essential part of who he is.

Now, 20 years after stepping away from the mic, he is stopping at nothing to give it another shot, proving it’s never too late for a second chance.

In this episode of Project Luminary with Kristen Aldridge, learn why you should never give up on your dreams, no matter what.
