Kay Dodd shares how she hit the reset button on her career after she decided “clean” was the way to go. Early in her journey she worked with Jeff Foxworthy on a few dates and he encouraged her to have a clean act. It took tossing out the old show and starting anew. Lucky for us, she is every bit as funny and able to perform anywhere with her current show.
