The number one question I get when I travel is, Am I really Amish?
Let me continue to explain this the best way I know how.
If you were going to pretend to be something?
You wouldn’t pick Amish.
This look hasn’t kicked any doors open for me.
Despite the Amish Mafia’s national fame and Weird Al’s hit single Amish Paradise, many comedy clubs in states that are not Pennsylvania are concerned that people in Texas or ( fill in the state of your choice ) won’t get me. You don’t have to know a single thing about the Amish to enjoy my show. You will leave my show knowing not very much more about the Amish then when you came in. There are any number of Nationally Touring comedians who rely heavily on a country and accent of origin. You don’t check the British population in Ohio before you book Ricky Gervais. He curses with a British accent. While I am no Ricky Gervais, it’s the same theory at work here. You don’t have to go off to Amish Camp to enjoy my show. Fans of me who live in states that are not Pennsylvania, please tell your local comedy clubs that you would get me. Of course this video clip says it better then this babble.
End of Rant
