Long time lurker, now interviewing for typical IB BB roles in London.
Luckily when it comes to fit questions I have the typical sports team, investment society answers ready to tick those boxes. However, my real passion is comedy, having done a lot of standup to increasingly larger crowds. I feel like theoretically this is a perfectly valid extracurricular. It requires excellent communication and people skills, hours of hard work perfecting a joke (attention to detail) and is a real high-pressure, sink or swim environment. The parallels to IB are easily drawn. I'd also like to think it would increase my chances of passing the "airport test". In practice I've never risked bringing it up in an interview for fear I wouldn't be taken seriously. Would any other monkeys ever chance it in my position (probably still won't)?
