ALL the jokes he used on the TV talent show were my jokes. A few he changed a small bit...Others he told word for word as I gave them to him in the last 2 to 3 years. His real disability is actually that the man has no soul and is a sociopath personality type user and manipulator as a person. What he did was very wrong and very hurtful to me and my brother.
My joke I wrote for free and foolishly just gave away to a past not so much looking back on it social friend I worked with before and knew a few years ago in comedy two years ago as a give away gift joke for him to use up on stage as a stand up comedian was heard by millions and millions of people all around the world on TV. Delivered word for word as I wrote it and gave it to him. It was not me up on the TV screen, but the joke I wrote that I gave him two years ago was! The second joke he told on TV was written for him by my brother. The first two of his three different jokes he told came from me first joke, my brother wrote for him the second joke he used on stage, I even wrote for him his 3rd joke, I remember telling him the premise, set, idea, and concept, start and finish of the 3rd joke he used also as a faded memory from a while ago, Hey, you or anyone but, just me, my brother, and comedian has to believe me about this at all. I tuned in to see how he was going to do on TV, and wow I wrote for him that joke, he used my joke on TV, did not change it, or use his own jokes? Crazy! Very Cool! Then his second joke he tells...my brother says that was the joke he wrote for him. Both jokes everyone heard around the world came from the same two brothers living in the same house in san diego and were probably given to the comedian social friend on the same night right after meeting him when the comedy show was all over outside the venue on the front entrance patio in san diego? He also took full credit 100% percent on the TV show for my 2 jokes and my brothers joke we crafted and wrote out and performed for him how to tell and deliver that joke. I feel pretty burned and angry and hurt. But nothing I can do about it now, it's his now according to the rest of the world watching him and according to the TV audience who believed the guy he wrote everything he says up on stage. I gave him about 20 to 30 different jokes I hand wrote out for him on folded up sheets of computer paper I keep in my pocket when going out and walking around or visiting someplace or event, up to 3 or 4 months ago even before he was on the TV show. I really don't want to find out what other jokes I came up with just for him he will say next in the near future while up on stage filmed for TV and keep taking all the creative writing credit for again and again as the comic joke writing "genius". My naiveness about show business was bound to happen to catch up to me when someone took advantage of my eagerness to share with the world my gift at jokes and comedy joke writing to befriend and network with people I wanted to get to know and start a business relationship with or friendship with that person. Me and my brother both learned the hard way, never give away free jokes...ever again...even to people you thought were going to be your friends in the comedy world. It wouldn't be the first time a stand up comedian in show business took full credit for someone elses talent and creativity at writing jokes for other comedians. The guy on TV is not a friend, he is a smooth chameleon. I don't know if any or how many of his jokes I first heard from him when I met him 2 years ago even were ever his original jokes at all, or if they all had before came from another comedian just like myself whose help he absorbed and then the person who helped had been brushed aside for another sucker who thinks they were friends. I ended up feeling left out and used not so much that he used all my jokes, but that he wouldn't even be a friend of mine, I gave him good jokes for free, now I had no value to him and he was ignoring me and brushing me off for over the last year as out of sight out of mind. People....I wish I could read people who are convincing actors much better than I seem to do. I can't catch a break myself in comedy, but I can help start careers....as strange as that sounds.
This essay statement is not comedy or a jokey joke. People are out there plenty of them in the entertainment stand up comedy joke telling world who will steal or just take the full credit for the joke someone else has wrote and crafted and created. You might cheer this "gentleman" on TV to win the contest show the next time you see him on TV...Not everything you see on TV is all real. Not every person who came to hollywood to be famous one day is to be trusted or on your side as a peer or your friend. The guys new famous tag line I came up with just for him on the spot earlier last year around thanksgiving time at my booked show I hosted, or at the TV show auditions in downtown LA when I saw him last and naively gave him more new good jokes, including his now famous tag line he uses and is known for. This is my punishment not as a cry baby victim, but for being everybody's friend and allies, I paid the price and was very much used and tossed away to the side. He won't get his or have anything come back to him in any way. That is not how real life works out, that is just moral folklore fairytales. He doesn't care if he used me and my brother and lied to all the American audiences watching him on the famous TV talent contest show. He became famous off the back of my good jokes, he is a household name now...so what does morals or ethics matter at all. Why would he need to recognize or validate me, he got what he wanted and came out to LA for in the first place..to become famous. So he lied and cheated other people along the way. I don't see god or his proud dad or girlfriend mentioning to him anything about ethical behavior and moral standards to his face of taking credit for someone else's creative work and their inventions of the entire jokes I wrote him word for word. So f**k him. He is a lost cause to not recognize or deal with ever again except begrudgingly as a work requirement because he will be around for a long time now that he is so famous. I was not jealous before, I was cheering him on when I first tuned in to watch how he did on TV. I was so proud my friend was on TV and made it on such a big important prime time show. Don't feel so sorry for his 'disability' he is more shrewd and sharp and untrustworthy and a lair than he lets on or be seen on the TV show advertisement of him as Americas new darling of stand up comedy. He is another one of those guys who pulls that crap of well why, " whats yours is mine and whats mine is mine " attitude towards others and his peers and so called friends. Don't fall for it. That innocent young boyish face is hiding his manipulative disguise of cut throat personality type.
I do comedy and tell jokes and cut it up as the class clown not to be famous one day soon but make people laugh and get attention and feel leadership in a group of people with their admiration that I am smart, witty, and can make them smile and laugh and feel entertained. Stand Up Comedy needs more genuine artists and class clowns who tell funny jokes or stories up on stage and less people just hoping only to get noticed and break into TV and movies as a star comedian turned actor who later rejected comedy for only just all serious acting roles and movies cliche.
We fight like cats and dogs all the time...we fight and argue and bicker a lot at each other...But the Goodman Brothers Brent and Oren make a very good comedy joke writing team. I think very fast, I write very funny jokes....but I use way to many words and need my brother to clean up and shorten the joke and make it more tight and concise. I help fix the jokes he writes, he sometimes will help edit down mine to be more to the point and a lot less wordy. We also have been for years giving a few comedians free jokes, both as a younger and older brother comedy joke writer team up..and I have done it on my own solo without my brother around me for many other comedians for many years now. I have great insight to share with others and my creativity is fast and powerful stuff. Even with anxiety and my depression that comes and goes in my life, my imagination and gift at creating as creative artist is mindblowing when I hone in on something and enter the zone focused on the hunt as a hunter or on a mission I must complete at all costs, my mind goes into overdrive and has in the past made some great works of art. I guess now my joke the comedian used on tv is one of these gifts of creative art I have available to create and share. This is not a joke. This is not a put on, not a tall tale. All real. All very strange and surreal and very thrilling to know about. and the funny part is I know people will not and would not believe me about this compliment the comedian gave me and my brother by using our jokes we gave him pretty much exactly almost verbatim for the jokes he used in his set that you probably have heard or will hear and find funny and laugh at hearing. The fact that people would not ever believe me about this makes it even funnier.
