This is paraphrased from Son of a former Commissioner of Agriculture of Louisiana, Justin Wilson was educated as a safety engineer. While working as a warehouse examiner, he visited Cajun country frequently, picking up bits of Cajun folklore and humorous sayings along the way. Eventually, he became known as a good storyteller, and made a series of sucessful comedy recordings. His talent as a cook, along with his personality and showmanship got him a gig as a television chef, a job he has performed for the past 25 years.
