The NAC has leveraged the power of numbers
so that individual comedians will have access
to group discounts including health insurance.

And he uses his "day job" as a source for many of his routines. Steve says he sometimes feels like a woman with big breasts when he's selling beer: "The straps dig into my shoulders," he says, "my back is always killing me, and all the guys, well.
