Story Jokes / Brad Upton

Play
Read more

Brad Upton has one of the strongest, cleverest, and cleanest acts in the country. With over 140 million views on Dry Bar Comedy and 12 years as the opening act for Johnny Mathis, the last thing Brad Upton needs are "story jokes". But we thought it would be interesting to do some episodes where we talk with great comedians about "street jokes", jokes written by other people that most of us would only tell off stage to each other.  And since we're all under quarantine until who knows when, we were able to catch Brad at home - a rarity up until this March. Brad is one of the most likable, down to earth guys around and we know you'll enjoy hanging out with this NW Comedy icon as much as we did.

Rodger That Podcast Episode #58 Brad Upton

Hello there friends of the internet and thank you for tuning into another episode of the Rodger That Podcast. Yes I know it has been a min but I had a lot of things to do like get drunk and hang out with loose women. LOL. OK now that that is out of the way we have a very special guest on this episode my good friend Brad Upton. I moved to Seattle WA in 2003 and started comedy that same year. One of the first shows that I watched on the weekend at my home club the Comedy underground was an anniversary of the club show. At that time I believe that they had been in business 23 years don't quote me on that. The formats of those show were an MC and Seattle headliners every show. Brad was on the late show Fri following another good friend of mine Rodney Sherwood. I had seen Rodney and I was like "why is this old guy going up after Rodney? He can't follow Rodney!" Brad goes up after Rodney had killed the room and like a pro proceeds to destroy that room for the next hour. Even with me only being in comedy for a couple months I was blown away. Not only by the fact the material was great and well put together but that having to follow a guy that was really high energy (Rodney) that someone could go up with a completely different style and completely take control of that room. Settle it down from a 11. Bring it down to a 7 and and have the crown ride with them at all the way to the end of that hour at a 12. I learned a lot that night. Its not any one style that wins the crowd but how you present yourself to an audience. Since then Brad has been telling jokes all over the world. He recently went what them damn kids call "Viral" with his Dry Bar Comedy special. As of right now he has over 57 gazillion views (That's A lot) the single most watched stand up video in history. Not bad for a poor old boy from Pasco WA who was school teacher and a track coach after collage. So please enjoy this episode and if you would like to find out more about Brad click on these links below.

Comedian Brad Upton | Touring Tricks Podcast

Comedian Brad Upton A magician and a comedian do a podcast– on a cruise ship.  I don’t have a punchline but we’re probably both bloated.  Enjoy.

Being an entertainer who works cruise shops a lot you meet interesting people.  Or at least your chances are higher.  Working on ships is very competitive right now and the quality of the acts is showing that.  Cruise lines are actively trying to becoming more hip.  The chances of meeting interesting people who are a little more unique, fun or down right weird — it’s just greatly intensified at sea.

The way I see it there are the following 4 stages of the shiplife:
  1. The Occasionals or the Newbs (newbs is the short form for newbies– which used to be a short form for something) opportunity feels great to this group– It’s exciting times.
  2. Fulltimers — they work ships full time. Most of their years income gets served with a plated breakfast and and a bathrobe.  Unless your work Carnival.  Apparently, I dunno that’s what I’ve been told. After the full timers we get
  3. Kickassers– this is the acts or groups that have a little extra sparkle, or in some cases extra pat on the back from the cruise line bookers, aka agents.
  4. Legends — the acts who have trampled over the ocassionalists and the newbs to earn the wisdom of fulltimers and keep their kickassers nametag– these are the full time ass kicking legends.

I said I’m in walking in Fulltimer Ass Kisser territory or at least I’m stepping in patches of it and Brad is walking with legends.

Brad gives several nuggets and wisdom for performers through stories about his career– and we both discuss some of the oddities of ship life.

You’ll hear:
  • Get To the Funny Part– how he writes the funniest possible joke.
  • An entertainers   career at really difficult times of life
  • The complexities of adding new material.
  • What comes first? The better you get the better your own standards get.
  • Confidence the real secret to being a good performer? When confidence is most important.
  • Wanna be a comedian– A logical action to take for an ideal first step

If you are listening for the first time Touring Tricks is also the name of my weekly webseries which you should check out– http://www.youtube.com/ryanjoycemagic or http://www.facebook.com/ryanjoycemagic.
