Stand Up Comedy Performance Style
As raucous as he is thoughtful, Jody Peters gives us a peek into his world of stand-up comedy, and what it was like to grow up as the only black person in an all-white, small-town Saskatchewan community. Laughter is found throughout Jody’s comedy show with something fresh at each performance.
Jody Peters Personality
Coined as one of the rising stars of comedy, Jody Peters knows he suffered from low self-esteem as a kid. I’ve found that’s common with other professional comedians I’ve met. We take humour from pain. It’s how we deal with it. Jody’s lesson for his son is that people are people no matter what their cultural differences. Being accepted for who you are is all about accepting yourself.
