While Druski’s bright future is apparent, his journey to becoming a comedian took time to be as clear as it is today…
Growing up on the north side of Gwinnett put Druski in contact with many different types of people and cultures. As a result, he gained a diverse cultural perspective giving Druski many different angles for his content.
Subconsciously soaking in what made up the material for his sketches, Druski fully embraced all aspects of his environmental upbringing.
While comedy had not been Druski’s initial professional plan, he had always been inspired by comedy legends like Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, and Dave Chappelle.
Through trial and error, he would find his way
With his original aspirations to be a sportscaster, Druski took the academic route to pursue this passion.
Knowing that he wanted to be a part of the entertainment business, the aspiring creative had not fully contemplated all of his possibilities. Ironically enough, his classes for sportscasting revealed Druski’s gift for comedy.
Constantly encouraged by his classmates to pursue comedy, Druski began to study motivational videos of comedy legends. Gradually, Druski believed that being a comedian was his true calling.
As Druski realized that university did not feel right for him, he dropped out to fully pursue his career as a comedian.
Upon his decision, Druski would embark on a journey into the unknown that many creatives who’ve pursued a dream can relate to. Despite the bumps in the road that Druski encountered, he refused to give up.
Druski’s unshakable confidence
The unshakeable confidence that Druski behind his gift would turn out to be the most crucial quality that led to his success.
Although dropping out of school is not a piece of advice that should be taken lightly, it was something that the internet comedian felt he had to do.
On the path to achieving a dream, uncertainty will always be looming, but the difference between that dream being fulfilled is whether or not you truly believe in it yourself.
He remained consistent with his craft and as a result, will continue to ascend…
