Stand Up for Family: Comedy the Entire Family Will Enjoy


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'm always a little bit nervous when I'm flipping through the channels and come across a comedy show. I absolutely love stand-up comedy and want to watch, but my kids are usually in the room and I'd cringe if the comedian said anything not "kid appropriate." So I watch a little bit longer and keep my trusty index finger on the channel changer just in case he or she drops a four-letter word that isn't yet in our kids vocabulary.

That's why I was so thrilled that AmFam videos decided to highlight kid-friendly and family fun comedy. Brought to us by American Family Insurance, I laughed so hard when I watched host, Bill Bellamy's segment (filmed in Atlanta) on getting whoppins growing up. I could relate with getting whopped for "talking back," back in the day. My mom would threaten a whoppin and we would never know when it was going to happen. I love her dearly, and truthfully those whoopins kept us in line growing up.

Comedians such as Rodney Perry, Mark Viera, Donnell Rawlings, and Tony Roberts will have you crying on the floor laughing from their stand-up routines. Rodney Perry has a funny story about living with his wife and six kids (including five girls). Although you'd think his girls would give him a hard time, instead his son's dance moves are causing commotion not only at home, but also in church. Let's just say, the Deacons may think that "Crunking" is catching the "Holy Ghost."

My husband, Roland could relate to the "Old School Grandmother" segment by Mark Viera. Growing up his grandmother, Hattie, would give him stern looks, and say some threatening words that would keep him and his older brother in line, before entering a store.

All of the stand-ups are hilarious, but I really shed a tear when I watched Donnell Rawlings impersonate Rock 'n' Roll artists, in his segment. The comedians do a wonderful job using their real life stories in their stand-up shows that we can all relate too. Stand Up For Family, is a cool effort to bring the family together to watch appropriate television that can make everyone laugh. Parents don't have to worry about vulgarity and everyone will have a great time.
