WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

They claim their potential is wasted, but they are realizing their potential for making people laugh.

Four comedians who have or had opportunities to work in more stable, lucrative fields are pursuing stand-up comedy careers and performing on what they dubbed the Wasted Potential Comedy Tour.

Wilmington's Blaire Postman, Raleigh's Brandy Brown, Durham's Lauren Faber and Chapel Hill's Maddie Wiener make up the tour. Postman is a former attorney, Brown is an actress who had an agent when she was a child, Faber has multiple graduate degrees and Wiener is an academic prodigy at the tender age of 18. 

Postman, Brown and Faber visited the WECT studio on Friday to talk with First at Four host Ashlea Kosikowski about the tour and their upcoming show at Wilmington's Dead Crow Comedy Room.

The Wasted Potential Tour plays Dead Crow May 5-6. Click here for ticket information.
