I-Published Story

“I knew something was wrong when I was 5 and my mother opened the bathroom door and dropped a cactus in the bathtub with me. I stood up with dirt stuck to me and said ‘Now I’m gonna have to take a shower.’ I never took another bath in my life!” Most people with a memory like that would try to block it out and forget. But Aaron Foster not only chooses to remember and share it with others -- he’s even able to find the surreal humor lurking behind it all. That’s because Foster is a standup comic, and he’s managed to take life events that might crush weaker personalities and instead twist them into offbeat humorous tales that are earning him laughter from audiences not only in his hometown of Chicago but nationwide.
