But Regan soon moved back to south Florida, where he had grown up, and began performing in comedy clubs rather than Mickey Mouse birthday parties. Regan joined a club in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for a few years and then began touring before ultimately moving to New York City, which has led him to where he is today.

Although his choice in career forces him to be on the road a lot, Regan said his job actually allows him to spend more time with his kids.

"It's kind of the opposite of what a lot of people might think," he said. "I'm on the road quite often, but I'm home more than when I'm away — and when I'm home, I'm home all day. Plus I travel with them, so oddly enough I spend more time with them than people might think."

Even though Regan has theaters full of fans waiting to be impressed, what his own kids think about him seems to be most important.

"They are actually quite proud of me, which means a lot."
