He got a tattoo to remind himself of this, on his forearm, depicting a businessman staring into an abyss. The tattoo got infected which in a weird twist of events gave Jamali a six month period to work on comedy. He gave himself a deadline, six months to make it or he would give up comedy. Six years later he's not doing too bad.
