Hey readers on the waves, allow me to introduce myself.
I'm Jamin, your friendly neighbourhood standup comedian. No I'm not a big time rich and famous, Yet, don't worry about it. I'm here to share a variety of topics that tickle my fancy and who knows even see you at one of my shows where I can win you over with my comedy magic! All this despite being a semi tall heavyweight black man, who looks like I control access to a nightclub's VIP, with a voice as deep as dark chocolate.
Standup is one of the most important things we have in this world, a great assembler of people from all walks of life.
I truly enjoy making people laugh because there's no problem that can't be fixed through laughter.
Standup and laughter can even come out of the darkest places and situations, lightening up a heavy moment. Time and laughter heal many wounds, sometimes in inappropriate places lol.
It has personally helped me a great deal with managing my emotions and using much of the pain I carried around in my heart for many years. Self-doubt because of my weight and family issues, finding out the pitfalls of love, left me with a nuclear heat in my heart I didn't know how to deal with. Standup comedy gave me an outlet to turn my pain into joy through laughter. Now I am part of a community of great people, from whom I've learned a great deal. Many new faces in many audiences and lots of laughs, sky's the limit.
Standup comedy can educate alongside making people laugh. Many truths can be hidden in jokes which may only be understood later.
Going out with friends and getting a few drinks and laughing till your side hurts and you can barely breathe is what makes standup comedy worth going to see.
Jokes from outside your comfort zone, getting you to laugh, can make you see things in new ways. Despite certain things not being your cup of tea they can possibly change your life, who knows..
There are many styles of standup: Observational · Anecdotal · Insult/Roast · Deadpan · Topical · Wordplay.
Whichever style is your thing and in whatever way you choose to take in, whether it be streaming or IRL there's something for everyone.
Now folks I am not a professional, I've never done this before and I'm not a rapper lol but I'm giving this a shot. I'll be giving it a go at some cool topics leading hopefully to many discussions that'll make you laugh or just brighten your day along the way. MINDFUL PIGS has trusted and believed in me enough to give me this cool new opportunity to which I am thankful. Oh and expect lots of good banter. I hope y'all enjoy what's coming and more.
