Just before his birthday in 1989, Perry relocated from San Francisco to Los Angeles, where he became a paid regular at The Comedy Store (the money sucks) in Hollywood and Dangerfields in New York City.
He actually met his wife "online" on an LA bulletin board (they did not hot chat). They talked "voice" for 40 hours over 3 days. Then she drove to his house and they instantly(?) fell in love. He now lives in Downtown Los Angeles, has been married 17 years to the same woman, has 4 kids, 24, 23, 18, and one turned 4 in November, and continues to work as a comedian, comedy consultant and instructor, Humor Motivator, voice-over artist, Free-Lance Tonight Show Writer, and appears at comedy clubs, colleges, and corporate events around the world.
