Trevor Wallace’s entry into the world of standup comedy came via the internet. While a student at San Jose State University, he started making videos and posting them on the now-defunct platform Vine. Many of his videos went viral, and as of last year he had a total of over 300 million combined views. Onstage, much of his set deals with his experiences as a dude in his late 20s. “I took this girl on a fourth date,” he says, “to a nice restaurant: two dollar signs on Yelp.” There, he made a shocking discovery. “I found out that my date pronounces the ‘L’ in salmon. The waiter walks by and she asks, ‘How is your sal-mon?’” The waiter looked at her, then Wallace, then her again. “I thought, ‘The waiter is on my team.’” The waiter matter-of-factly told Wallace’s date that the salmon, pronouncing it correctly, was great. “Sal-mon it is!” she said, and asked Wallace what he thought. “I want to get laid. So I said, ‘I’ll have the sal-mon too!’”
