Comedian Professor Milo Tremley started life as James Lee Reeves, a Los Angeles history major who wanted to be Elvis when he grew up. I was determined to be a success in the music business, he says. I absolutely failed at it. Broke and deep in debt, he relocated to Nashville and started writing funny tunes -- just like Weird Al. Inspired by three failed marriages, Reeves began dispensing dubious dating advice in his songs. I failed so utterly in my personal life, he says. So, I made lemonade out of lemons.
These days, Reeves stand-up show consists of musical performances as well as a Q&A session, in which the prof answers audience members queries about romance. But he sorta cheats a little. I dont read any question that I dont have a punch line for, he says.
Plus, his outlook is a bit on the shady side. Someone once asked: Is 33 years of marriage too much? Milos reply: Youve served your time. Thats 15 more than you get for murder.
