Back in highschool, during one of our Youth Group Retreats, one of my peers stood up to do a comedy routine during our free time. Like every other student present, I was prepared to give a pity laugh here and there, because there was no way that he was actually going to be funny.
Well, he wasn’t.
It turns out that he was “performing” the comedy routine of an actual comedian; one he had memorized, after listening to his CD so many times. It was hilarious. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place, we were all laughing so hard. And crying from laughing. Immediately after he finished, I remember peppering him with questions.
How can I find this CD? Do they still make it? WHO IS THAT GUY?
“Have you ever heard of Brian Regan?” he asked.
“No! Is that who it is?” I replied
“Yup, you should check him out.”
So I did, and then bought the CD right away. I listened to it and laughed some more. I made my family listen to it and they too laughed. We all thought he was so funny. Plus he wasn’t, like, dirty. He rarely uses any profanity and the content is really clean as well. As a family, we were sold. Especially my little brother Ben. He loved him so much, that a couple of years ago, I bought him Brian Regan’s CD for Christmas.
This year, Brian Regan’s tour is bringing him ’round these parts, and for Ben’s birthday (which isn’t actually until June) we’re going to see him live. Tonight.
I am SO excited. So is Ben. I’ll let you know how it goes.
*you won’t actually get this unless you’ve heard his CD, guess you’ll have to buy it and find out!
