In one session on The Joe Rogan’s Experience, Segura said that he was very thankful that his career progressed gradually, without any sudden leaps and bounds. This has given him a chance to adjust to his new status and stay in touch with the world. He says that if his success came overnight, he would probably be overwhelmed. One of the reasons for doing both the podcast and standup is because one gives him the chance to recover from the other.
“Sometimes you do a tour on the road and you do like eight or nine shows on the road and the idea of flying back to LA and doing another show, I’m like, No way, dude. I’m all burned out of stand up this week because I just did nine hours of it.
But at the same time, I’ll miss doing a podcast because I haven’t done it in a while. So I think the back and forth of it is what keeps it interesting and doesn’t exhaust you”
