Johnny Mac breaks out his half-arse Jeff Foxworthy impressionsion
The Shark Deck Johnny Mac with your daily company News, Seth Meyer said, president Biden informed Congress that he will officially end the Coronavirus
Pandemic emergency, which means that everybody can finally stop wearing their mask a year ago. Colbert, take that Covid. We beat you. Shove that up your nose and rotate it five times. Colbert again, it’s been a long time coming. I wish you could see the smiles on the faces in my audience and I wish I could too, cuz they’re all still wearing masks.
I noticed there didn’t seem to be any buzz about DL Hughley hosting the Daily show during the week. The Holly Reporter caught up with Trevor no, who said? I think it’s been amazing to see the guest host. I love Leslie. I remember Leslie Jones and I working together way back in the day before either of us was on American tv, and this was us doing comedy clubs in and around the us.
I was chatting to her and telling her how proud I am and enjoying it for her. Wanda Sykes is a legend, so enjoying her, seeing herself, expressing herself. I’ve been loving all of it. This week’s guest host Chelsea Handler, and then Sarah Silver. Thee News did a long, wonderful interview with Nate Brigans.
If you have not watched Hello World on Amazon, that is a fantastic, funny special. Hey Nate, at what point in your career did you realize you’d been discovered by the people here in Utah? . They said You always heard Gaffigan and Brian Regan could go there. You heard if you’re clean, you could do really great in Salt Lake City.
the first time I’d go there, I’d go to the comedy club wise guys, Keith Stubbs over there. He’d book you every time I went there. It’s like the next time it was a little more crowded than a little more crowded and then slowly kind of going. I actually now have a lot of close friends that live in Salt Lake City and I end up there a lot.
Good question here. What comics do you think people should be aware of? Who are the comics out there who are doing good work? Nate said, I’m doing three specials. Mike Vecchione, Greg Warren and Joe Zimmerman. Those are the three guys that come out with me on the road. They’ve been doing comedy for 15 plus years.
Mike is someone who wasn’t necessarily clean. He was always close enough to be clean. I was like, look, if you could do a special being clean, I’m willing to get behind it. , you see Drybar Comedy. There’s a lot of great comics who are clean comics, but I have a lot of friends who are in New York and they’re amazing comedians, and some were basically clean, but have edgy stuff and I’m like, look, if we cannot do this stuff, then I’d like to put it in my special when I produce it and do it.
If you like my comedy. It’s along those lines. It’s just giving an audience more to choose from, especially from a comic who has really learned on the road and learned in New York City and has the chops of New York City. When I take these guys on the road, they’re not openers, they’re headliners. But I luckily get to play in some really big places.
You can tell when they’re destroying in front of the audience. You’re like, man, they’d be a great fit. And they’re the guys who can all work clean. I’ll jump in here, and I’ve told the story before when I first met Jeff Foxworthy, he explained to me he too used to have a little naughtiness in his act and he realized if you work clean, and then he stretched out his hands and he said, you get the older people and you get the younger people, and he demonstrated how much bigger his audience got by cleaning it up.
I’m a fan of clean comedy. I’m not a.
But I think if you can work clean, it works for you. That’s said, I think there is something said for, uh, occasionally punching a joke with a good F-bomb or an expletive. For attention’s sake, I try and work clean on this podcast. Sometimes I have to use synonyms or made up words like stuff. In case my use of stuff confuses you.
That’s the S word, the cret word, but I say stuff
anyway. The desert news ass neighbor, Gatsy. Why is this whole like clean comedy thing important to you? Nate said, I just want people to watch comedy. It’s hard to watch stuff with your family. With my shows, when people come out, it’s all ages. It’s grandmothers to 90 year olds. Bingo. That’s what Foxworthy said, and it’s not like I’m trying to do comedy for any one.
I don’t wanna just be a children’s comic. I wanna do what I do. But I love that I can appeal to this many people.
There’s just not a lot of things that families can go do together. Everybody wants to. I’ll have a dad come out with his teenage daughter and he is like, there’s not much we agree on for entertainment except when we come to your show, it means a lot to me. . We all went and watched Jerry Seinfeld in 2000.
My entire family went and watched that and it was an awesome experience that we all got to have and I still remember it. And it’s a night where everybody gets to laugh. And I know you don’t wanna make anyone feel uncomfortable. Tom Papa used to open for Jerry Seinfeld. He has a new book. It’s called, we’re All In This Together.
Some Make Some Room. This one will be out on June 6th. It’s Papa’s third.
Tom says, we are truly not alone. We’re all told we’re unique snowflakes, but when we’re all polite together, you can’t tell us apart.
Tom said the options available to today’s comedians are bringing more people into the fall to share their own observations. Technology has changed the ways that performers made the leap to reaching national audiences. Tom said it’s all in your own hands Before someone from the Tonight Show had to tell you you’re worth listening to.
now you can record it yourself. The only thing stopping you is you. There’s a lot more voices. There are a lot more people who can get out there and build an audience. Comedians now have a lot of smaller demographics. The gate’s been opened and all these funny people can get in an audience.
I have been obsessed with chat G B T generating jokes. I asked it to write some jokes in the style of Jeff Foxworthy comparing the chatbot to a redneck, and the chatbot gave me a lecture saying, I’m sorry, but it’s not appropriate or respectful to make jokes that target a specific group of people, including those who identify as rednecks jokes that perpetuate stereotypes or marginalized individuals can cause harm. And are not in line with open AI’s.
Values of inclusiveness and diversity. Sorry, Jeff Foxworthy. Actually, good news, Jeff Foxworthy. You cannot be replaced by a chatbot. You have found a niche in comedy. You’re gonna work forever. Chatbot added. Instead, let’s focus on humor that is kind, creative, brings people together. So I simplified it. I said write jokes in the style of Jeff Foxworthy about the chat G P T, and here’s what it did, and let me break out my half ass impression.
If you’ve ever asked chat G P T A question and received a response and under a second, you might be talking to a language model. , this is so stupid, .
If you’ve ever asked chat g p t to tell a show could received a funny response, you might be talking to a language model.
I have now typed in write some jokes in the style of Jeff Foxworthy about NASCAR and wives.
Wow, chatbot’s uptight. I’m sorry, but it’s not appropriate to make jokes that can be considered sexist, derogatory incentive towards any group of people, including NASCAR drivers or their wives, . Okay. Let’s try again, write some jokes about nascar. Will you do that for me?
All right. These aren’t bad. You might be a NASCAR fan if you know what Robins racing means.
If you think a caution flag is what you get for speeding, you might be a NASCAR fan.
You might be a NASCAR fan. If you’ve ever said, I don’t care what you say, I like it when they go round and round.

And from Lad Bible, a comedian stopped the show after an audience member says she walked in on her friend having sex with her mom.
Eric Newman was doing some crowd work and asked a guy in the crowd if the woman with him was his girlfriend or his lady, and at which point the lady said he had sex with my mom,
Eric Newman got quite distracted and told the crowd to shut up so they could all listen to the.
As the story goes, the encounter between the man and the woman’s mom came, after the pair went abroad together with a woman explaining we were just abroad and he met my mom in, and then she makes a smacking sound. The comedian Eric Newman asked, wow, how old is your mom? The man revealed he was 20 at the time and the mom was 49.
The younger woman then said, I walked in on it.
Newman said nothing was gonna top that until the audience tonight and said, quite frankly, Nobody could follow that stuff. And that’s your comedy news for today. Follow the show for free on Apple Podcast, Spotify, wherever you get your shows. YouTube. Forgot YouTube. See you tomorrow.
