Joey Diaz is a Cuban American (born in Havana) who grew up in North Bergen, New Jersey. On his website BIO, it explains how when he was in a Denver, CO correctional facility in 1988, he would do standup between the movies they would watch. That’s when he realized he had what it takes. The thing that stands out about Joey Diaz is his storytelling. The way the audience is engaged at a a Joey “Coco” Diaz show is like no other. He tells them very well and very real. There is no shortage of stories and it doesn’t seem like there ever will be. He hosts his own podcast as well entitled “The Church of What’s Happening Now”. He has had acting parts in “Grudge Match” and “Taxi”.

Comedy Central premiered a show called “This Is Not Happening” on January 22nd of this year, hosted by another stand-up comic Ari Shaffir. This show is the perfect platform for Joey Diaz: a bunch of comics telling true stories. Joey has been on the show 3 times already because of his infectious style and stories. When you listen to Joey you experience a range of emotions, not just laughter.

In this story Joey talks about his mother’s friend and life lessons.

This story is about a fight in the streets of New York.

In closing Joey talks about the effects of Heroin.

 

I sincerely hope you enjoyed these, and learned something too.

Greg Proops is the man. He is one of the current Kings of Improv comedy, as a result of him doing “Whose Line Is It Anyway” for 25 years, where everything thing is made up and the points don’t matter. Something I learned is that he was also a stand-up comic. He has 5 comedy albums! We have all seen the whose line episodes, so I will spare you the clips, but just go to youtube if you wish to see more!

Here’s an appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival HAHAHA!

If you really want to get to know more about Greg he appeared on a great podcast “The Church of What’s Happening Now” hosted by Joey “CoCo” Diaz (who is always a true classic) and they had a conversation that lasted one hour and forty-five minutes. I highly recommend it.

 

If you wish to delve deeper into the existence of Greg Proops please go to his website, or check out his very own podcast entitled “The Smartest Man in the World”. Check out one episode here:

The podcast has spawned a book which is going to be released in May of this year. Learn all about the upcoming book at it’s very own website! :)

He currently is hosting a show on the Travel Channel entitled “Trip Flip” where he takes 2 strangers on the vacation of their lives with the Travel Channels … (read more)

The Mott Campus Clowns

There’s a lot of things we’ve talked about in the past that have been strictly for adults (unless you’re a twelve year old who’s surfing the net without you’re parents knowing, I guess no one is stopping you?). Today though, we’re going to talk about something that is strictly for kids, to make them laugh. … (read more)

Do you ever look at Craigslist for things?  A car? A cat? An obscure object that you’ll never find? Have you ever noticed the little tiny button at the bottom that say “best of” with a little heart next to it? If enough people read one post, and enough people click that best of button, … (read more)

Saved By Fallon

At first when Jimmy Fallon came onto the Late Night scene, I wasn’t so sure I was going to like him as a host. But after all the shenanigans he’s pulled, how can I not. Conan is my all time favorite late night host, Craig Ferguson pulls in second, and then I’d say Fallon comes … (read more)
