Some of my favorite comedians talk about food. Two I really like are Jim Gaffigan and Gabriel Iglesias.

Gaffigan’s material on food is really funny, basically observations about Americans’ approach to food in today’s culture. And food is a universal topic as well as a way to connect with a foreign culture. I’m sure that any non-American can watch a few of his specials and probably understand Americans. Not really, but maybe.

Iglesias is the same, but he mostly talks about food with a different approach. It’s more personal, and he makes it more personal by telling stories about his interaction with fans.

One thing both of them do very well is voices. They can tell jokes with many different kinds of accents and voices. They’re great storytellers. Gaffigan can do great East Coast accents and a raspy female voice. Iglesias does an amazing sexy female voice and amazing sound effects.

I’m not sure how to end this post, so I’ll just say this is the end of the post…

And I don’t care about Game of Thrones. At least not until I watch the show, and I won’t do that until the series is finished and I can binge watch sometime in the future.
