(CBS Local) – Ryan Davis never dreamed of selling out some of the nation’s top comedy clubs, and credits the success of his national tour as the outcome of a ticket sales mistake.
Raised in a small North Carolina town, Davis started a successful comedy career when he was bored one day and uploaded a video to YouTube. The video gained popularity in his town, and he began to amass YouTube followers. Finally, Davis’s tenth video uploaded went viral and he became an opener for top comedians around the country. After a ticket pricing mistake at a sold-out show where the organizers charged $25 instead of $10 per ticket, Davis realized that he was capable of touring on his own and people would pay up to hear his jokes.READ MORE: No One Injured In Two-Alarm Fire At Mobile Home In North Fayette Township
