Don Hepner, a.k.a. the 'Off-Ramp Comic,' is making the commutes of drivers in Iowa a little easier with his stoplight stand-up comedy. Hepner is a comedian who has worked in a variety of venues and clubs, none of which have been anything like his current gig.

After the local comedy club closed down, Hepner decided to take his act on the road. The Off-Ramp Comic tells jokes to drivers for 50 cents and has made as much as $20 an hour.

Check out the video above to see the Off-Ramp Comic in action. I'd gladly spend 50 cents to make my commute more fun. Stats for Roadside Comedians Trending: Older & Chilly
