Comedians are the Modern Poets
To understand Dov Davidoff’s humor you really only need to know two things about this New Jersey native: 1) he grew up in a junkyard and 2) lost his virginity to a prostitute in Mexico at the age of 12. If that doesn’t make you real, I don’t know what does. Comedians are the modern poets, educating us on our lives through humor and Dov Davidoff is one of my favorite poets today.
Here is a clip of Dov talking about the: “Love Drug.” Now I am not saying this is a Shakespearean love sonnet, but it is fucking hysterical.
Here is another perspective Dov has on life: “You know you’re too high when you’re eating cereal naked and your girlfriend says, ‘Put your clothes on,’ and then you realize it’s not your girlfriend, it’s some woman on a bus.”
Dov combines ADD with a sarcastic take on life. He is nervous, compulsive, high strung. If I was a comedian, I would aspire to the heights of Dov. Oh yeah and I would totally go gay for him.
Just as I started this post with comparing the blurring boundaries between comedy and poetry, I leave you with this thought. What is funnier a comedian performing poetry or a poet performing comedy?
Wonderful work! This is the kind of information that are supposed to be shared across the web. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this submit upper! Come on over and talk over with my web site . Thanks =)
