Texas actor and writer Travis Dunn on taking the leap into stand-up comedy with Weed & Whiskey News Host founder Jerry “J-Man” Joyner in latest podcast episode

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2023 / — TV/film actor and native Texan Travis Dunn talked about his late-blooming acting career, working with Larry Hagman, and his recent journey into stand-up comedy with W&W News host Jerry “J-Man” Joyner.

Watching the in-studio interview, it’s easy to see that Houston-born Dunn has a knack for comedy. “It’s always been an itch,” Dunn said of the art form. “I love making people laugh.”

He and Joyner met during the fall of 2023 at the inaugural Comedy Fantasy Camp in Hollywood. “It scared the hell out of me—I’m used to working in front of a camera—take one, take two…” Dunn said about the stand-up experience. “You mean if I screw it up, it’s just done?”

With his acting experience and natural sense of humor, Dunn mustn’t have screwed it up that badly: Shortly after his return to Texas from comedy camp, Dunn was offered a job as comedian on a five-day Carnival cruise ship, and has also been working with a writer out of the legendary Second City comedy venue in Chicago.

Since taking his first acting class at the age of 36, Dunn’s career comprises nearly 200 acting credits in just 11 years, spanning from television dramas to commercials and short films. See him on screen in the upcoming films Happy Birthday Charlie and Ick, premiering in theaters next year.
