We had the good fortune of connecting with Al Greene and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Al, how do you think about risk?
Life is about taking risk …especially if you are following your dreams and not taking the traditional work for someone else route …your going to have to be willing to take that risk and believe in yourself

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’ve been a Barber for almost 30 years however I’ve been doing mens wigs / hairunits the last 5 years as well as I work on set and have some really interesting celebrity clients …I would say doing hair has opened doors for me in comedy that maybe I would not normally been able to make those relationships as well as being able to intertwine my comedy and barbering …..having a relationship with someone who’s hair you cut is a little different than just meeting someone it’s like being their doctor or something lol

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh wow well being in southern Cali you can’t go wrong lol we got the weather weed and women lol but my best friends always want to see me perform they always want to see the beach …..you got to hit IN and Out and Roscoes they are both a bit overrated to me though but visitors really like them and definitely got to show them all the Kobe and Nipsey murals 🙏🏾

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would definitely say my mother was although she worries as all mothers do she would always say how much she believed in me …as for now as things get tough I would say just seeing my peers push for their dreams and goals and having clients who are very successful and seeing how they still grind and set even bigger goals in life
