I think stand up comedians are some of the bravest people in the world. Again humor is subjective, as it differs across culture and demographics. You’ve got to keep your audience entertained all the time, with every line.
DEF JAM is one my favorites! It is intense enough (offensive and exciting), the stand ups keep it real, the jokes are relatable and are very honest with their thoughts on life. Just look at the crowd’s response man. I’d pay big money to be in there.
DEF COMEDY JAM is also a platform (literally!) for african americans and minorities speak up, represent and be heard by their community and everyone else.
They’re so good that even Obama did it Def Jam style.
Comedians, aren’t they the greatest persuaders?
