Comedy Video of the Week and Advice for Entertainers

When viewing bulletins on MySpace, I notice a trend among comedians, musicians and other entertainers. Almost every entertainer promotes their own shows and music. However, they neglect the value in promoting OTHER artists' music, comedy, and performance dates. If you help others like this, there is a possibility that the artist you are promoting will help you with promotion or gigs in the future.

With that being said, some of my blogs will be used to help promote other entertainers. My first effort will be posted on this comedy blog every Wednesday. It is titled "Comedy Video of the Week". Each Comedy Video of the Week blog will promote another comedian's stand up comedy or skits.

Here is the first Comedy Video of the Week - this was filmed by Jonathan Gregory. He is a stand up comedian here in the Phoenix Arizona area. He is by far Joe Rogan's biggest anti-fan. This skit is him playing Stephen Hawkings explaining who would win in a fight between Jonathan Gregory and Joe Rogan.

This video has over 100,000 views as of right now. Most of the comments on this video are very negative. You can view the comments yourself here. The people making comments on this video apparently don't like it because Mr. Gregory is making fun of a handicapped guy. They call Jonathan Gregory bad names. I think it is ironic that they think it's wrong to make fun of Stephen Hawkings, but it is perfectly all right to make fun of someone else.

My opinion is, if you are going to make fun of someone, you should make sure it is funny. In my opinion, Jonathan Gregory's video is hilarious, the comments insulting Jonathan Gregory are not.

Here is the video: What is your opinion?
