Macungie native Adam Yenser says he was quiet in high school, so you might not have noticed him if you were a fellow member of the 2001 graduating class at Emmaus High School.
But there was an inner funny guy with an urge to let loose. He was more of an observer who wrote down everyday life situations, he said in a WFMZ story.
For his efforts, he was part of a team that was recognized in June "for their outstanding work in the Special Class Writing category for 2011 at the 39th annual Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts Emmy Awards held in Los Angeles," the story said.
Now living in Los Angeles, he gets back to the Lehigh Valley about twice a year and has performed a stand-up routine at both the Allentown and Bethlehem BrewWorks and at the SteelStacks at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, it said.
