Recorded: May 8th 2023 | On this week's episode, Will is missing unfortunately because the boy has pink eye so Taylor goes solo with comedian John Crist. The boys get into how Crist started/got into comedy and how he originally started in Church. Following that they get into the differences between Skits vs. Sketches, how to not steal another comedian's jokes, the reason SNL gets away with all of their edgy jokes, as well as when he realized he really needed to start working at his craft in comedy. The guys then get into how to keep evolving your comedy. Crist talks about how your audience will change with you and therefore different things will be funny to different age groups. Along with that, different cultures will find different types of comedy funny. Finally the boys get into a deep conversation of trying to find your “why”. The boys get into the feeling of having a fan coming up to them, and saying that they have helped them through a tough time or the reason they got out of depression. The pod is all over the place, there are some good laughs as well as come conversation that will really make you think. 8:00 John started comedy in church 14:05 Andrew Santino saved his career 16:14 Taylor interviewing Jeffree Star 19:20 Finding that line of what's a joke and what's not 24:59 Does he get jealous of other comedians and their art 25:46 Sketches vs Skits 32:49 How do SNL jokes just fly by and not be canceled 42:18 Crist doesn’t curse in his show but is still wildly popular 50:23 Why did he leave LA for Nashville? 53:58 At what point did comedy get really serious for Crist? 55:18 TikTok is the problem with comedy now 56:30 The never ending process of evolving with your fan base 1:11:28 How the feeling of making people laugh is so intoxicating 1:20:45 John’s teaches Taylor about the Amish community 1:30:11 John breaks down comedy to the most simple terms 1:46:35 How Jerry Seinfeld paved the way for comedians 1:52:03 Crist has some words for Comedians on TikTok 2:02:09 Is it a right of passage to get canceled as a comedian and why he got canceled 2:08:47 His special is coming out and why comedians choose Youtube over Netflix 2:17:50 Fans coming up to you and saying that you helped them or they idolize you 2:33:14 Why do the things that you do / what is your why 2:46:04 How he came up with the title for his special SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: Chevy: Head over to Chevy.com to learn more.
