On WISH-TV’s All Indiana, Kayla Sullivan featured his routine about how messy your kids are in the car. He jokes this was how trail mix was invented.

Sullivan interviewed Upton about his career and how he comes up with parenting content.

“It’s just the kids growing up and the things that you go through in life,” explained Upton. “You think about the funny part and try it on stage. Pretty soon you’re getting big laughs and you go, this works!”

She asked if his kids like the jokes about them.

“They do but a lot of it isn’t even true about them and they’re like, come on dad really?” said Upton. “And I say it’s just a joke and they’re like, you did pay for college so I’ll let you slide on that one.”
