Two Questions for Both Speakers & Listeners

January 19, 2019

Here’s another gem from Ken Jeong‘s interview in the January 21, 2019 issue of Time magazine —

The interviewer asked about his upcoming Neflix special, noting that it “has a lot of sincere moments, especially about your wife Tran Ho’s facing breast cancer. Is stand-up a place where there’s room to get serious?”

He answered, “Yes. I wanted to do something very different from my old stand-up, which was joke-based. I wanted this to be real. That coincides with today’s stand-up comedy.

“Comics like Hannah Gadsby or Ali Wong exemplify how you can do deeply personal work in a stand-up format. It wasn’t like that 20 years ago.”

My 2 Questions for preachers and teachers/trainers/presenters and people who listen to us:

Do you agree with him about that change?

If so, how much of one’s own “deeply personal” material belongs in sermons,  lessons, etc.?

As always, get hold of me in any of our usual ways.

See you back here tomorrow.
