“Theo Von: Regular People” Review: Let’s go back to our roots to find our comedic point of view

Theo Von slowly became one of the most successful artists to emerge from the actual world/rules of the road/challenge of MTV. After winning the final season of NBC comics in 2006, Von continued to host Howie Mandel’s joke show on TBS, “Understanding Him,” and released his first Netflix special in 2016. Now he’s back with his second special, filmed at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in March. August. Ordinary people meant to cover it up, people who grew up with Von in a small Louisiana town.

Von also introduced us to a boy named Dairy who has Down syndrome:

With which young Theo drank alcohol at the local Ramada, with the kind support of the innkeeper. Another kid from his school walks past Thoth because Von states that there is a case of “theism”. And the other kids call him King Thoth. And the first Mexican kid to show up in his black and white town when Von was in seventh grade, and in particular, he’s also the first kid in moustache class.

In the second half-hour, he took two moments to pause and thank his audience; first in 38 minutes to check them for vaccinations, test negative for COVID-19. Or at least buy a fake guard card to attend the show; then at 47 minutes, more sincere than thanks for the support the podcast has received.

Between and around these moments, Von builds stories about each of his parents. First, his father emigrated from Nicaragua in 1922. At the age of 12 and gave birth to Theo at the age of 70. Von understands how his father’s age affects the dynamics of the house. And how it becomes a humiliating funeral visit by wearing a Halloween Beetlejuice costume as a 9-year-old first costume. Von closes his class with a story from his youth about his mother. Who makes long-term money from radio, and Theo hopes to set it up with a chair salesman named Big Charlie.

How Von as a comedian:

He and his fans may have focused on the critical things I wrote about his 2016 special, though I’m not entirely negative. This clock has several benefits. As I wrote at the time, “No offense offers a glimmer of hope for original or quirky jokes and stories.” I encouraged him to talk more about his youth in Louisiana and his education. In short: “I want to hear at least another 10 to 15 minutes of this episode.” To his father? “Similarly, the idea that Von’s father was 70 years old when he was born is rare enough that his circumstances can be further clarified than his youngest son decided.”

What Happened: Von came to his senses and became a popular podcaster sharing more about his life and point of view in two shows. His leading podcast, This Last Weekend, has a million listeners with only 840,000 subscribers from YouTube.

What’s the background now: guess what? He took my advice, and it paid off!

In his first special, he filmed homosexuals. Now he jokes: “We’re all a little gay.” When he talks about Dairy, he warns us: “I don’t care about ds Kids… they know we all have something. with enough clues for each audience member to decide. Whether to take the joke too far, something his classmate said he had. By saying he wanted to “honour his voice very closely in this story”. While holding to the possibility that “he too is a child.” racist one.” Von even apologized and told the crowd, “If that’s too much, I’m sorry. Give me hooligans.”

This time it’s a joke about him. Perhaps even more striking and largely coincidental, Von’s speciality concludes similar to that of Chappelle, as they pose for photos with their fans along with the final props. The background photos are selfies from the stage with his fans, ordinary people. Chappelle fans are rich and famous.

Von is now in the mood for that. If you can communicate with him, you will be delighted.
