All my life I’ve had no filter. It doesn’t take much for me to clear an entire room of people or to get a party laughing like children. I love to play the comedian, but sometimes it can backfire—fast.
When you have a crude sense of humor you have to know that not everyone is going to like it, and that’s okay. It took me a while to understand the importance of knowing my audience. When it finally hit me I felt powerful and unstoppable. But sometimes when the funny bone comes so naturally to us, we can’t help to unleash it every chance we get.
Funny guys, be careful. Humor is supposed to be a shared language. It’s public, inclusive, not selfish or mean—that’s just being a bully. When your sense of humor goes above and beyond what’s appropriate, life can be a bit tricky. Here are some things you might go through:
#1) Pressure to be funny all the time. To this day I feel it not only from my friends but from myself too. After introducing yourself to the world as the “funny guy” you can’t help but feel a need to match up to it every single day. But sometimes even the best of us need a day off.
