Subject: the comedy festival
Dalis Jaxon seemed to draw some of the heartier laughs at the Inaugural Great American Comedy Festival in mid-June in Norfolk, Neb. Jaxon was the second of 18 comedians to give a five-minute routine during the festival's "Amateur Night." As the reporter responsible for covering the event for the local newspaper, I recall noting that he was among the funniest five or so comedians. What struck me about his performance relative to some of the other stand-ups was his calm and confident mood. That laid-back approach, in my opinion, added to the humor in his bits, like how he wished family crack addicts could be treated like dogs and "put down." My favorite part was his take on how he thought men should get built-in physical excuses to be moody like women have. The way he pretended to tell his boss he was having a "tender ball day" and that he wasn't coming into work got quite a few laughs.
Overall, Jaxon was definitely one of the funnier stand-ups at a relatively prestigious competition. After interviewing him, I was even more impressed with his success given that he adjusted his material to meet the expectations of a more family-type audience. Humor and versatility are two big keys to a comic's success, and from Jaxon's performance in June, I would predict more for him in the future.
