After 25 years of achieving what he thought were his dreams of being a headlining touring comedian and actor, Kyle Cease suddenly discovered that the belief “When something happens, I will be happy” is a complete lie. With nothing more than an intuition, he decided to quit his standup career at its peak, and now—as a transformational comedian and New York Times bestselling author, he brings his one-of-a-kind self-help wisdom to sold-out audiences in his Evolving Out Loud Live stage show.  Kyle Cease has made more than 100 different TV and movie appearances, including 10 Things I Hate About You, Not Another Teen Movie, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately, The Martin Short Show, Comics Unleashed, and numerous VH1 shows. He has two #1 Comedy Central specials to his credit and, in 2009, Kyle earned the #1 ranking on Comedy Central’s Stand-up Showdown.

When _____ happens, I will be happy.

Have you ever had that thought?

Kyle Cease was a standup comedian for 20 years (starting when he was 12) until, at the height of everything, he started feeling fear and anxiety about going on stage.

In his mind, if that recognition went away, he would go away.

A lot of us end up defining ourselves by something external – our audience, our money, our approval – but nothing else can define you; “We’re just this collection of shit that believes who we are is the whole story.”

So Kyle stopped doing college shows, clubs, and Comedy Central specials. He started combining comedy and transformation – and he makes it accessible to everyone.

It’s not just biohackers who want to optimize their life, and it’s not just the Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who want to find another way to transform their mindset. There’s a mainstream public who wants to learn and change – and they can’t afford to drop $10,000 on something, even if it’s an incredible product.

Kyle is a breath of fresh air (or a slap in the face) for a lot of 'Hollywood Hopefuls' and the entertainment industry in general – but his insight is something this community desperately needs.

In this episode, Kyle shares his comedic formula of personal growth and evolution, in a powerfully fun and accessible way.

Athletic Greens. 11 supplements in 1! As someone who’s been into superfoods, and supplementation for over 25 years, I’ve seen many a trend come and go. One of those trends is green powder blends. Having tried many of them, and left most of them behind, one I’ve decided to stick with is Athletic Greens. The attention to detail in the ingredient deck and the careful sourcing of those ingredients is really impressive. The inclusion of not only the broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals is fantastic, but also the enzymes and probiotics necessary to fully assimilate those nutrients. Add to that the convenience factor, and the elimination of the need to travel with 20 bottles of supplements, and you’ve got a home run even for the most discerning health connoisseur. If you’re looking for fast acting energy, alkalinity, and nutrient density, Athletic Greens is a home run. Get 20 FREE travel packs valued at $99 with your first purchase.

My daily routine lately goes like this: in the morning I add it to my nut milk smoothie. At night when I want to chill out, I make a golden latte. I add the power and a healthy fat like ghee, coconut, or grass-fed butter to hot water and voilá! Great warm elixir, really chills you out, gently detoxifies and tastes awesome.
