“Laughing is contagious. It’s so much better than any virus or disease…as long as you can be on the good side of contagious you’re on the right track”
On the day of our interview, I met Sareth at Sunbros, a bustling cafe in Flagler Beach, Florida. We must have looked like a confusing pair as we stood in line at the front counter; me in my crazy, hippie dress and wild hair and Sareth, not far from my 5’3” stature, decked out in a black leather vest, adorned with patches.
But don’t let the biker attire fool you. In fact, Sereth carries himself with an unassuming gentleness that upon first meeting might be mistaken as timidness.
However sitting down with Sareth at a table, with my trusty recorder propped up between us, I met someone who was far from timid. From hIs soft-spoken voice comes a humble tenacity and bravery that has the power to entice anyone who has the opportunity to listen.
Sareth has lived a charmed life, apprenticing under horror director and writer Clive Barker, and befriending the members of the revolutionary hip hop group the Wu Tan Clan. His stories from his time in LA living as a music journalist are reminiscent of Hunteress Thomson - that is, If Thomson was a polite, Asian man who doesn’t do drugs.
Sareth now devotes much of his life to stand-up comedy, performing at bars and festivals from Daytona to Jacksonville, using his time on stage as a way to channel his demons…quite literally. Listen for that part of the interview at the end. It’s crazy stuff!
To me, Sereth effortlessly epitomizes the life of an everyday mystic. With Sareth, there are no pretenses. He is easy to be with. You get what you get – a kind and gentle man, with many crazy, funny, sometimes sexy, dirty stories to tell.
It was a great honor to spend an hour with such a kind and magical being. I hope through listening, you’ll get to know the secrets of his magic as well.
