ARUNDEL, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- If you are not good at one job, there is always time to switch careers.

That's what former York County Deputy, Juston McKinney, decided to do. After seven years of serving in southern Maine, he traded in his badge for a microphone and became a comedian.

Since then, McKinney has seen national success. He has been featured on several programs, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. He has also had two Comedy Central Specials air, and was a member of the Blue Collar Comedy: The Next Generation tour.

McKinney just recently kicked off a homecoming tour in Maine.

"I just thought this was a way for me to stay in New England now," he said. "I have a family. And this was a way for me to introduce myself to a lot of people in Maine."

McKinney will be performing live at the Gracie Theater on the Husson University campus this Friday at 8 PM. Tickets are available at the door, or by calling the theater at 318-6856.
