In 2008, Alan Corey wrote A MILLION BUCKS BY 30, a book full of cheap money-making tips. Instead of appearing on Fox and Friends, the morning show fueled by coffee and rage, he sent his comedian friend Andrew Wright to portray him and have some fun at Fox News’ expense.

“Oh I’m spending money now. Don’t worry! I like to joke with my friends that my next book is gonna be called ‘half a million bucks by 31‘…cuz i’m gonna spend half a million this year.”
“You are your own brand. Be that, own that, and earn off of that.”

Andrew Wright is a stand-up comedian who lives in Atlanta, GA with a blind cat. While in New York, he co-hosted Here’s The Thing, named one of the “Top 101 Nights Out in NYC.” He will be on Twitter…soon? Probably today. Maybe tomorrow.
