Theo Von Is A Stand-Up Guy

“When I have free time, I text strangers.” This might seem like an usual hobby, but for stand-up comedian Theo Von, founder of the absurd and amusing CrankTexts website, it’s one of several hobbies that has brought him success. Von takes the phone numbers of friends, switches up a few numbers, and starts a conversation. His website features photos of the resulting text messages. “I’ve texted around 30,000 numbers at this point,” Von says.
