A while ago, a couple of my friends (Tapan Trivedi, Keith Lowell Jensen) created a really cool show called “The Coexist Comedy Tour.” The idea was to have a lineup featuring a Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Atheist, and a Buddhist comedian. Then each performer makes jokes about their religion and pokes fun at the others on the lineup. At the end, they hold a Q&A session with the audience.
It was such a cool show idea that when they held auditions for a new christian comedian I tried out. While I didn’t make it, I had a great time auditioning and I still use the jokes I wrote for tryouts.
I was surprised and excited when they asked me to fill in for their christian comedian yesterday at San Luis Obispo Poly Tech. I ended up hosting and we each did about 20 minutes on the lineup. It was a lot of fun and I got to work with a lot of my favorite comedians from the bay area.
Here’s some cool pics:
