Jordan Carlos: Oh yeah! For sure. Stand-Up is the best man, you can express your feelings, the Sky's the limit, you know? That's the best thing about stand-up is that the sky's the limit. You can make what you want of it and you don't have to worry about other peoples approval... except for the audience, (yells to imaginary audience) "come on guys laugh!" But you know what I mean? You don't have to worry about industry approval. It's a meritocracy, you make people laugh, you pack em in and your good.
JC: Oh yeah more then ever. I think that since the shows are big on MTV, which is kind of crazy since I've kind of definitely aged out of the demographic, but because of that success, one hand washes the other, you know? I believe that TV money can give you the capital to find your artistic direction and do what you want to do. I love stand up
That said, Jordan had to get ready to run onstage and do his thing. Well... to be completely honest we laughed so much over the recording for the interview, that most of it was almost unusable, but I stayed for the show and was glad I did. Dude is hilarious. Jordan performed his "black nerd" shtick with a surgeons precision and the crowd was on board from the jump. I call it shtick, but to be clear it's no gimmick. Jordan is coming from a genuine place and shares his life experience in a real way that creates a sincere bond with the crowd. Recommended highly. Don't miss your chance to see him tonight. Only two shows left.
