An Evening At the Comedy Club

Last night, my wife and I went to a Comedy Club and Restaurant to watch the stand up comedian, Sinbad (born David Adkins).  He is the one and only.  Very famous in USA. Me and my wife both like him because he and Bill Cosby are the only two stand up comedians DO  NOT use any foul word or vulgar word or racist language.
 
No F word.
No S word.
No V word.
No N word.
No racist jokes.
No touching himself.
 
Yet, it was so fun to listen to him.  He was on stage for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Every minute the whole auditorium came down with laughter.
 
I don’t know about other countries because I never went to a stand up comic show in any other country.  Nowadays, in USA, all of the above “NO” I have listed, are the main topics in stand up comedy.
 
In addition to attending in person once in a while, we occasionally watch on TV and in Youtube.  It is very embarrassing if there is any kid present in the room. So we don’t watch when kids are in the living room.
 
There is one famous stand up comedian who use the V word every 2 minutes.  I don’t know if he likes V a lot or hates V a lot.
 
Here is a sample from Sinbad’s stand up comedy:

  1. Hi SG,

    I have never gone to see this particular comedian. I am curious now about his stand up shows. I have heard about him but didn't know he doesn't use those common forms of foul language and grabing himself or saying racist jokes to make people laugh and have a good time.
    Glad u guys had a nice time at a comedy show without the foul language.
    I know some people would be dissappointed by the absence of v, s, and b n much more.

  4. These days its difficult to have clean entertainment. He must be real good if he can get the audience captivated without all these you mentioned.

    I hope you had a nice time

  9. Though comedy is culture specific there is are no excuses for people laughing at vulgar or racist jokes. In India, comedy today unfortunately borders on vulgarity! While slapstick comedy minus vulgarity is okay, what I enjoy is intelligent comedy- the P.G. Wodehouse variety!

  10. He should speak slowly - it's difficult for us to understand! But the energy of the people laughing makes me want to laugh too :)

  14. Thanks for your comments Rajesh. He has an African-Amerian accent. (That is the politically correct expression. In other words, he has a black accent.)

    Not many people in India are familiar with that accent. But man, Sinbad is a riot.

  15. That must have been an interesting and comical show. Glad that you had a good time.

    Even, we as a family go for comedy plays and enjoy the shows. But, never been to a standup comedy show yet. must watch one. Thanks for the video share.

  16. Indeed, the common perception is that a stand-up comedy is good and a success only if it has expletives. As you rightly said, such shows don't auger well when children are around. And use of expletives in public like that doesn't do the society any good either.

  19. I am a big fan of Stand Up Comedy. We have so many people in Chennai doing it regularly (suitable for general audience and selective audience). Thanks to Evam for bringing it to Chennai. That leaving-everything-behind-and-laughing-from-our-hearts is priceless :-)

  20. Thanks for your comments Ashwini. I did not know stand up comedy is that popular in Chennai. I will remember that. Thanks.

  21. Havent seen a live stand up comedy show as yet! But whatever that I have seen on Indian TV, it is all about ridiculing people with vulgar language and acts! A clean comedy is a rarity, I guess!

  22. Thanks for your comments Shilpa. As you said, a clean comedy is a rarity.

  25. I am not very familiar with 'stand-up' comedy. This video is good.

    It is good to see such a huge audience appreciating this clean comedy show! He must be very very good. Thanks for sharing, SG!

  26. Yes,vulgarity-devoid comedy really is fun=filling.I think cutting right jokes pertaining to the situation is an innate talent indeed.And that too using decent language is a great thing.

  27. What a relief! How did he still survive in the oceans of vulgarity?
    I take it V stands for vulgarity or does it stand for anatomy?

    I always thought all the laughter comes from either 'paid' audience or from a laughter machine.

  28. Thanks for your comments Sandhya. Sinbad is very good.

  29. Thanks for your comments Sarala. Situational on the spot comedy is a real talent.

  30. Thanks for your comments Sweety. The V stands for anatomy. Laughter machine is used in TV Comedy Serials.

  31. I should watch his show. I never heard about this guy. Most of the popular comedians in US use F word and all sort of other ugly words.

  32. Thanks for your comments Ash. Many of his performances are in Youtube.

  33. Stand up comedy shows can be very interesting,provided it remains within limits.
    Recently,we went a stand up comedy show in DLF5.
    Good Lord...It was bloody vulgar

  34. you know I have always wanted to go to a stan up comedy show but for some reason or the other I have not been able too ..

    although I watch all on the tv shows . some of these comedians are really gifted .. But a show with all the "NO" you mentioned is hard to imagine
