The hardest part about being a comedian is coming up with material that activates those big laughs without offending the self-righteous and religious.
I’m amazed at the vulgar content of some of these so-called comedians. They get up on stage with their fancy shoes and smug teeth. And they make unnecessary jokes about sex and drugs and social equality.
And it blows my high.
Cuz I like comedians with substance. Who use that substance before getting on stage.
Seriously, there is an art to comedic crudeness. And comedians with the skill to strategically place vulgarity in their act are ones I actively seek to learn from.
As a Christian, I believe there is something Divine about being able to come down from one’s pedestal and relate to people on a human level.
Like Jesus did.
And keeping true to my faith is everything. I know for a fact my success in stand-up depends on the Lord for 2 reasons:
- Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Which is a pretty big deal.
- They say Jews run show business, so it doesn’t hurt to have one on the team.
So I try to stay synced up with the Holy Spirit and Scripture. But it’s not always easy.
The Bible says by following Jesus we will be made “fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
I wish there was an ETA on how long between the following part and the catching of mens part.
Cuz I’m still single af. No mens in this net, yet.
