Does anyone remember when comedians were funny witout using one foul word? I remember a whole list of them that never used a curse word, bodily function, or rude gestures to get a laugh. Most of them did not just get a chuckle - they got huge belly laughs. They talked about people we all know. EVERYONE had an aunt or uncle or some relative or friend just like what was being described - and it was the timing of the delivery that made it funny. Jack Benny could get laughs with just a look or an eyebrow lift. Fred Allen was a master of the English language. Sam Levin had people rolling in the aisles. The best of the more recent was Cosby. The current "funny" people use the WORD every other word. So sad.....Just came back from a little shopping trip and stopped for fast food, a gen y customer was wearing a t-shirt that said "F (spelled out) Milk, Got Po t?" -
Yeah, those are the ones I want to market to - NOT!!!
A man in his late 30's early 40's said to him - glad my kids aren't in here and seeing your shirt, while others were nodding in agreement.
So who is YOUR market?.
