Denial is another joke I’ve told on stage that I’m pretty fond of. Granted, I changed it up a little bit so that it works better for dialogue so that it’s not just one character standing and talking to himself. It’s a joke that gets mixed reactions but I really enjoy it. I’m a sucker for meta jokes or subversion or simply flipping things around.

An example of something similar which never really landed was my impression of a person who “actually” suffered from Homophobia. The joke was that this person was legitimately afraid — terrified — of homosexuality, like some might be afraid of spiders or clowns or heights. Most of the homophobia we see these days consists of people just being dicks about homosexuals. My character was straight up scared of gay culture. So I’d roll up into a little ball on stage and scream and shake. I thought it was hilarious, but nobody else really did.

About The Author


BEAR never met his real dad and was forced to be his own father figure. He spent his time as a child grounding himself or disappointing himself when he missed his t-ball games that he promised himself he would definitely be there for this time. He beat himself up often, metaphorically and literally, so C.P.S. came and took him away from himself. At this point BEAR discovered that he could see in the dark, but only if he spent several minutes letting his eyes adjust first. BEAR is also a Capricorn and loves long crabwalks on the beach.
