Al knows his audience, and his give and take with each crowd ensures that no two performances will be alike. as told to Clifford Fewel in "Two Drink Minimum," Al says of his skills: "I can go from doing a 1,000 seat theater to a bar gig in front of 50 people. I enjoy both because they require different skills; a corporate gig is a completely different show from a comedy club. The ability to work anywhere is what takes time. The good thing is I still enjoy the process."
