All you can do is laugh. It’s the only thing you can do!

John Vlismas, comedian

Privileged white people have never ever come up with any great comedy because they’ve never faced a problem.

John Vlismas, comedian

It’s a very big investment! Savanna has asked us to distribute some money to comedians and pay them to come to our virtual comedy club. In the next three months, we’ll employ 90 comedians… It’s going to pay really well…

John Vlismas, comedian
