Raised in Compton, Travon Free did not have an easy childhood. As he got older, he was a star athlete at his high school, which translated to him playing basketball for his college team. An injury forced Travon to quit the game, and forced him to follow his other dream, comedy. Travon was scratching by as a writer and comic, when he landed his dream job writing for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and then Trevor Noah. Now working for Bill Simmons, Travon has seen his career skyrocket, but it wasn't always easy. Listen to Travon's inspiring story and get inspired yourself.
