I love a good comedy routine. There’s nothing like being crabby, flipping through the television and finding some funny standup to lighten your mood. However, as a parent of a 3 year old, most of the shows and comedy videos are not family-friendly. That means as soon as the kid enters the room, flip, off goes the channel.
As a mom, I’m always excited when I see companies and organizations working on family-friendly efforts. American Family Insurance is creating some cool entertainment for all ages right now with “Stand Up for Family”—their comedy special hosted by some of today’s hottest comedians like Bill Bellamy, Rodney Perry, Tony Roberts, Mark Viera and Donnell Rawlings.
My favorite thing about the Stand Up For Family videos is that they are all centered on family experiences from the comedians’ perspectives…that we can all relate to. I don’t think there is one of us who doesn’t remember a situation with our parents just like Bill Bellamy discusses in the “Respect” video. However, my favorite is Mark Viera’s “Old School Grandmother” where our grandmother (or mother) warned us not to ask for anything in stores. (I use that one even now as a parent!) I love this one because it reminds me of how my mom never bought us the “good” cereal (read: sugar!), but now is happy to buy it for my daughter. (Yes, I’m still bitter.) His take on the situation sure gave me a good chuckle. Check it out and you’ll understand why someone would want to punch a box of cereal.
Which one of the AmFam videos remind you of a time when you were growing up?
