Remember when comedy was, uh…. FAMILY FRIENDLY? What the heck ever happened? My online pal Chuck was recently lamenting the state of the entertainment culture, and how heartily I agree. It does seem that movies and music and comedy is geared toward the immature, adolescent male. (No offense to godly adolescents!). It’s disgusting.
Well, I’m happy to say that I HAVE found some very good stuff on the Internet. The kids and I LOVE Michael, Jr., and Brad Stine, and John Gray. And I just recently found out that the American Family Insurance has a whole series of comedians who are hilarious AND they promote family values, like spousal faithfulness, reverence, respect and mocking death metal rock music, lol. One of my favorite videos from the AmFam video site is Rodney Perry’s skit “Poppin’.” He is SO COOL!!! I love how he gets the audience participation. The skit reminds me a little of John Gray, who also wears a suit and can dance with absolute class. Perry’s little schpeel rings back fond memories of school cafeteria times in the 1980s, yes…. You can check out the videos by various comedians at the Stand Up For Family website.
Maybe if we all rise up to support such efforts by various companies and individuals who are promoting family values we can see change in this country. Lord knows, we need it. I am SICK of adolescent “humor,” how about you?
