This guy is not a stand up comic, but the video about his company is awfully funny.
Travis Cordell Kalanick is an American billionaire businessman. He is the co-founder of Scour, a peer to peer file sharing application, Red Swoosh, a peer-to-peer content delivery network, and Uber, a transportation network company. Red Swoosh was sold to Akamai Technologies in 2007.Kalanick resigned from Uber in 2017 after controversy over the company's unethical culture, including allegations that he ignored reports of sexual harassment at the company. He remains a shareholder and board-member.
Kalanick is ranked 115th on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans, with a net worth of $4.8 billion.
Kalanick was born on August 6, 1976 and grew up in Northridge, California. Kalanick's parents are Bonnie Renée Horowitz Kalanick (née Bloom) (died 2017) and Donald Edward Kalanick. Bonnie, who was Jewish, worked in retail advertising for the Los Angeles Daily News. Donald, from a Slovakian-Austrian Catholic family whose grandparents emigrated to the United States,was a civil engineer for the city of Los Angeles. Kalanick has two half-sisters, one of whom is actress Allisyn Ashley Arm's mother Anji, and a brother, Cory, who is a firefighter.
n 2009, Kalanick joined Garrett Camp and gives him "credit for the original idea" of Uber. Camp, co-founder of StumbleUpon, spent $800 hiring a private driver with friends and had been mulling over ways to decrease the cost of black car services (meaning, taxis that are dispatched by a central service rather than hailed directly on the street) ever since. He realized that sharing the cost with people could make it affordable, and his idea morphed into Uber. "Garrett is the guy who invented that shit", Kalanick said at an early Uber event in San Francisco. The first prototype was built by Camp, and his friends, Oscar Salazar and Conrad Whelan, with Kalanick being brought on as a "mega advisor" to the company. In October 2010, Kalanick succeeded Ryan Graves as CEO, who had held the position for ten months.
On June 13, 2017, it was announced that Kalanick would take an indefinite leave of absence from Uber. His responsibilities would be assumed by his direct reports in the organization.
On June 20, 2017, Kalanick resigned as CEO after Benchmark Capital reportedly demanded his resignation only days after his mother’s death in a boating accident. Despite his resignation, Kalanick will retain his seat on Uber's board of directors. Dara Khosrowshahitook his position of CEO in August 2017.
If Kalanick had stayed true to his Jewish roots, he might have changed the idea to this one...

Type your paragraph here.
Four rabbi friends were discussing a criminal mystery that has boggled the minds of the whole community. They’ve been talking about this for weeks.
After presenting his explanation for, what seemed like tenth time, one rabbi cried “I told you I am right. It’s the only explanation that makes sense.” However, his friends insisted that nothing had happened that could not be explained by other causes.
The rabbi was getting ready to ask for a VERY big sign, but just as he said, “Oh God…,” the sky turned pitch black, the earth shook, and a deep, booming voice intoned, “HEEEEEEEE’S RIIIIIIIGHT!”
The rabbi put his hands on his hips, turned to the other three, and said, “Well?”
“So,” shrugged one of the other rabbis, “now it’s 3 to 2.”
With all the submissions The Chairman gets each day, this topic is the most popular.
