Besides, Rathbone would rather riff on himself. His adoption often figures into his act. People say, You have your fathers eyes. Im like, No -- I dont even have his address, he says. They ask, Are you English, German, French? I dont know. All I know about my culture is that they give away their children.
Rathbone spends his rare days off working on a book about stand-up comedy. Hes also putting the finishing touches on a song about OSU football. But he may switch allegiances now that one of his sons attends Bowling Green University. I told my boy that Im going to be rooting for the Falcons, he says. And he said, Dad, I dont know if Ill be rooting for the Falcons.
