23 Jun TV Show “Coach” Star, Comedian, Author and Marietta Native, Pam Stone
Pam Stone grew up riding a horse bareback to Perkin’s market during the summer and scaring away a perv with her horse (yup, apparently there is an east Cobb perv).
Her time at Wheeler High School was not easy. She was as a tall, incredibly thin nerd and had trouble making friends. She headed off to Kennesaw State College with low expectations. But she was surprisingly popular with the guys and doors started opening up to her.
She started waitressing at the Punch Line Comedy Club in Atlanta and went on stage after her waitress friends dared her. She ended up killing and she knew driving home that her life had changed forever.
She met one of the Punch Line’s headliner’s named Jay Leno and Jay started mentoring her. She perfected her craft and left for Hollywood. A chance meeting with a producer ended up with her finding her way on a show called “Coach” (after never having acted before).
After a successful 7 years on that show, she bought land in Upstate South Carolina and started thinking of her future and a return to something she loved — horses.
She vowed to leave Hollywood when she turned 40 and start her new life on her South Carolina farm. She made it — just barely. She found herself climbing over the fence to her farm in a driving rainstorm, just before midnight on her birthday.
Now she coaches horse clients, writes blogs, does standup and lives with her other half, a rosarian named Paul Zimmerman.
