Healing through comedy

Comedian Travis Howze

CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) Comedian Travis Howze is in the comedy hot seat every time he steps on stage. After years as a firefighter, policeman and Marine, he is used to the heat. But his career hasn’t always been a laughing matter.

Howze, who performed at Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club in Clayton Saturday night, turned to comedy as a way to cope after losing nine of his fellow firefighters in a Charleston sofa store fire in 2007.

“I have seen the worst of the worst, or so I thought,” he said. “When you’re assigned to a team that I was assigned to, where you have to go in and retrieve your friends after they’ve perished and see them in the conditions that I had to see them in, there’s no words that I have that can explain that. I just have those memories.”
