#EK – (Grab a tissue or two for this) Comedian Silences A Room For 9 Minutes.

By Rollie Williams

Comedians spend years honing their stage persona, but when all-star comic Anthony Griffith tells the story of his life as a comedian and as a father, not even he can keep it together.

To be honest, I couldn’t either when I watched this video. It’s so important to remember that the people we idolize aren’t the two-dimensional, easily digestible caricatures that we see of them in the media. I’ve seen some breakdowns before, and this was the first one that felt real.

 

ORIGINAL: By The Moth, an organization dedicated to the art of storytelling. Found on its YouTube page. If you’re feeling sad, you can check out some of Anthony Griffith’s funnier material.
