C’mon! Let’s a hear good one!

A few days ago, Gene Wilder passed away and I was watching a feature on 20/20 or one of those evening shows.  While they were showing clips of his best performances, one clip really stuck in my head.  It was a clip taken during an interview with Wilder.

“Ya know, I’m not really funny in real life, I’m actually pretty boring.  Most of my jokes in person come off as cheesy.  A lot of times, people will run into me and say, ‘Hey!  Let’s hear one!’, and I can’t.”

It struck me hard!  I’m that way too!

At work, I’m usually known as the guy, whose “crazy” and “funny guy”, always the guy who says “funny shit” or you’ll “just never know what he’ll say” type of person.

Which I’ll admit, my responses at work are quick and witty and make people laugh or shake their head with a smile on their face.  But my biggest critic is the one I love the most…Louie!

At home, my wife more or less has known me to have little success with my jokes, it’s usually her giving me a silent big thumbs down or a funny “booooooo!” response.

Thought that would be funny to share with you, RIP Gene Wilder!
