I have just signed up to do a comedy course. It starts in September.
In order to get a headstart, I did my first 5 minutes tonight about JWs.
I explained that I celebrated my first birthday last week.
Bemusement and a tittle.
Explained that if you could choose between Hare Krishnas and people standing at a trolley/cart as a religion who would you choose?
Got a laugh.
Explained that the whole world will be destroyed if you do not listen to our message, yet we are not prepared to initiate a conversation at a trolley.
I asked the MC to help me flirt with a women. I did so badly.
Got a laugh
I explained about my new company JWPass where you get 24hr membership to be a JW. Especially useful on Christmas day.
They liked it.
I asked what do they associate with JWs and a guy said "Bad suits"
A quarter of my audience had spoken to a JW and nobody knows anything but our issues around birthdays, Christmas, blood and our preaching.
After 130 years of preaching I would call that a marketing failure.
Will do my same jokes tomorrow and try and improve hopefully
