When a comedian sets out to do a special, they want you to feel as if you’re there in the room with them, even though you’re at home. A lot of times, they’ll go out of their way to make it feel that way. But as Jeremiah Watkins figured out (and said onstage) when he was filming his new special, it was “not a normal show”.
He decided to film the special at The Comedy Club in his hometown of Kansas City. As he stepped onstage, however, he realized that the audience was filled with all of his old friends and family who came out to see him perform his set. This was what he dubbed an “unexpected family reunion”. He even wound up bringing his mom onstage during the show.
Jeremiah Watkins: Family Reunion is coming to Comedy Dynamics. It hits Amazon, iTunes, and more on December 8th. You can pre-order the special here.
