Used/Abused/& Financially Raped by any and all takers.
In light of the recent Writer's strike here in The Entertainment Capital of the Wortld; Hollywood, Ca. . I began to reflect upon this "BUSINESS that we call SHOW" And the many components/positions that makes it tick. And if those positions/components were likened to a race. Directors would be the caucAsians/ Actors the Asians/Writers the Mexicans/Comedians the Niggers. And the Studio heads and Studios period that you may think I have forgotten to mention;are like the Rothschild's/Bush's/ & Rockerfellers. But having said that the most important of all these is the Creator;The Creator of Content. The most Prolific and Potent creator that exist is the Comedian; the TRUE Comedian. You see without the Creator there is no JOke that makes us laugh nor a Story to make us cry.

Which brings me to my point about Comedians being the niggers of Show Business. As I stated in Daryl Littletons's Best Selling book "Black Comedians on Black Comedy". Club Owners /Promoters and every Exhibitor of the this "Thing Of Ours". This Craft of Comedy refuse to pay a decent wage. Knowing damn well that the cost of living continues to soar, but they continue to nickle and dime the Comic. And are actually paying LESS than what Red Foxx/Milton Berle/Dick Gregory/Jackie Mason & those guys were getting paid back in the 60's/50's/& 40's. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE!

Comedians ARE the MOST CREATIVE but the LEAST RESPECTED. When everybody in the Comedy Club is making money except who the people came to see, the Comedian. AH! let me stop you before you start with the programmed bullshit- I mean me to sing along. "They're not there to see you. Who are you? If the people knew who you were ; you wouldn't need this Club you'd be in a Theatre." yadayadayada something to that effect. Let me clear my throat, and allow me to borrow your imagination and use this simile. Let's look at the Comedy Club as a Restaurant ,first of all the waiter at a 5 Star Restaraunt does not and will not earn more money than the Chef. I equate the Comedian to a Chef that not only has great recipes/material but also brings the food that he will then cook and serve the people, and make it look easy . In a nutshell the Comedy club is the restaraunt. But who would want to go to a restaurant that had no food, and like wise WHO would go to a Comedy Club without Comedians. It ain't happenin'

The Most creative ;the least respected. And like Niggers, not Niggaz because Niggaz stick together, if you don't stick to gether you're bound for extinction. There is no sense of Community amongst Comedians, especially on the black circuit. Meanwhile every other job in Hollywood looks out for one another and has a support system in place by way of a Union. The need has never been greater, there have been Comedians who have recently died and didn't even have the money to be buried.

What's wrong with this picture?

While Television and Movie writers, who happen to come down with a bad case of writer's block, visit their local Comedy club for fresh ideas & inspiration. I'm telling you what I know not what I heard, I've seen how Comedians like Bill Bellamy change the American vocabulary overnight with the phrase "Booty Call" and never recieve a check. In fact a movie was made called Booty Call and it didn't star him. Jamie Foxx and Tommy Davidson happen to be the stars of that "classic"

So what do I propose?
My Proposal is this

1) Stop back stabbing & Under cutting fellow Comedians.
You're fucking up the Game.

2) Get your Sales Game Up. There's a reason Crystal Champagne costs $1500 a bottle and other brands cost less. It's about perceived Market Value.

3) Do unto Others as you wish they'd do unto You
Look for ways to feed your fellow Comedians. Meaning freely pass along Gigs and/ Or Information about work ESPECIALLY FILM&TELEVISION. Give it.

4) Don't fall for the Bannana in the tale pipe. There's more than enough room at the table for ALL of US. If it's not you're dreaming to small. Expand your Vision IMAGINE a bigger table.

If WE don't do it ; if WE don't look out for OURSELVES . And do it NOW we'll die off one by one with broken dreams and broken bank accounts. TEAMWORK MAKES DREAMS WORK. The more you give the more you get. Give greater support to ne another.

The Rythm of a Joke

Whether you are a Preacher/Public Speaker/or Stand-Up Comedian,every great Orator is like a Jazz Musician playing a song. In the case of the Comedian every Joke is a Note and every laugh a crescendo. If you listen closely to the Rythm/Cadence/and Delivery of any speaker; you feel a stir within to the song their singing with their speech. For the Comedian we Laugh. For the Poet we Snap. And for the Preacher we yell AMEN!

'Don't nothing scare a Wino.
They can handle Dracula
Say Fool ! What you doin
Peekin' in those PeoPle's window?!"
- Richard Pryor

If one does not have the complete works of Richard Pryor in the Comedy library for a study tool( yet). As you can imagine Richard's Rythm/Cadence/and Delivery is what makes us laugh. But if you focus your attention to the way words were put together. And say those 5 words OUT LOUD to yourslef. "Peeking in those PeoPle's window" that shit is funny.'s all because of the words being put together Phonetically in a Masterful way. Meaning based upon the way it sounded. It's like Peter PiPer Picked a Peck of Pickled PePPers.

Study & Meditate upon this.

"If you can not fart around the one you love; and they love you same
their love has stench worse than yak flatulence.

Many people there be on stage telling jokes.
But few are true Comedians.

Comedy is a Calling.
It is a deep yearning to turn tears into a tickle,
and pain into laughter.

How can you tell if you have the calling of a true Comedian?

A true comedian creates and doesn't imitate.
A true Comedian is too proud to steal a joke. He/she wants to know that the laughter came from something they wrote.Because a true Comedian wants THEIR voice to be heard.

Like George Carlin & Richard Pryor, their voices are/were original in that it was genuinely honest and revealingly authentic....smoke a blunt and think about

But the jackals and hyenas don't care.
They don't care that when they steal someone else's material the essence of that person is still what got the laugh and not them.

True Comedians, on the other hand, have an unspoken/unwritten understanding of the rules of the game of creation.
Which is #1 If you did not come up with the joke it is not your idea no matter how many funny tags you come up with, after the fact.

INSIGHT: At that moment is a/the spiritual test.
Are you worthy of The gift of ORIGINAL thought?.
Which is a joke that others will say " I WISH I HAD THOUGHT OF THAT"

It is at that moment the great Creator is testing us to see if we're ready for the gift.
That's the reason why you hadn't thought of anything close to what you just heard, when you heard it. And now your mind is flooded with all kinds of funny hooks and ways in which you could do it,IF you had thought of the joke 1st.

PROPER RESPONSE: Give. Give all of those brilliant tags and ideas to the person GOD (I like to acknowledge him as) has given the joke too. Then you will see how that actually accelerates your creativity.


Write, don't bite.

RECIPE of a JOKE - How To Write a Joke that gets Laughs

WELCOME! Greetings and Salutations, so let's get right to it.
Whether you're an aspiring Comedian/Public Speaker/or CEO of a Fortune 500 Company
For whatever reason , you want to know how to write/constrtuct a funny joke. I applaud you.
Not many in the Profession of Joke telling/writing make such a Noble endeavor.
They wait until another has Created; then they duplicate/imitate/and steal. These are the jackals/ravens/ and hyenas of the Comedy Professions.

A joke is very similar to a cake. Everybody knows it when they see or hear it.
But NOT EVERYBODY KNOWS how to make one. Which if you asked ME how to bake a cake from scratch,
you'd see me SCRATCH my head. And pull out a box of Betty Crocker, Sara Lee, or some
But a JOKE on the otherhand, I can show ANYONE how to make from scratch all day long.

Which at this point I MUST WARN YOU that "baking" jokes from scratch is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. And could DESTROY YOUR LIFE, because the LAUGHTER ....OoOo THE LAUGHTER that you HEAR from a SYMPHONY of WORDS that YOU CREATED.MmmMm. Is better than sex ! Whew!

And if you're tempted into becoming a STAND-UP COMEDIAN, GOD HELP YOU if you do. Because something that you only planned on doing every so often. You know "casually" has now BECOME a habit, and a NEED.

that sh** is WORSE THAN CRACK!!!

If you choose to proceed beyond this point. You do so at your own peril.


1 part Premise
1 part Set-Up
1 part Punchline
3 parts Love
10 parts Performance


1) Premise
2) Set-Up
3) Punchline
4) Performance

The Idea. What is funny to you.
What you want to talk about.

How you present that idea of what's funny to you.
The words you use to translate your language of funny
to the room full of strangers who you don't know.
Whom you have never met.

The whole point of a joke. The Pay off. The funny part.
The part when your audience is SUPPOSED TO LAUGH.

Get your ass onstage....IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.

Because WITHOUT LOVE, and not "passion" for what you're doing.
I mean genuine LOVE in your heart that fills your words. YOU WILL NEVER GET A LAUGH.

Any good joke is full of truth, and truth SAID is a hard pill to swallow. Especially from a mean spirited speaker.That One is met with "offense"/ "anger/ and sometimes a physical fight.

While, the harshest of things can be said by one who is OF LOVE.
That One is met with Laughs/Smiles/and Hugs .
