Al Lubel became a lawyer to please his mother and a comedian to please his sadistic need to torture her. After graduating from law school, Al moved to Los Angeles, passed the bar exam on his first try – and immediately began the practice of...stand-up comedy!
Lawyer by day and comedian by night, laughter followed him wherever he
went even into the courtroom. At the comedy clubs, the crowds would stare. In the
courtroom, the juries would laugh. Al gradually began getting work on the road, soon
becoming a full-time comic. "I realized I had to give up the practice of law when
clients would call me for legal advice at places like the St. Louis FunnyBone."
So, Al quit law. This was a good decision, because within a year he won
the $100,000 Grand Prize for comedy on Star Search. "The Tonight Show" was
another childhood fantasy. When Al heard Johnny Carson was retiring, he auditioned and
became one of the last comics to appear on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny.
Jay Leno was watching that night and has since booked Al for numerous "Tonight Show"
appearances, including the recurring character of NBC Legal Analyst.
Even though comedy is his first love, Al admits to missing the practice
of law. "I'd like to have one more trial, something serious like a murder trial. As
my client's fate hangs in the balance, I'd like to see his reaction when I whisper in his
ear...I'm a comedian!"
