Top 5 of 2012: Jim Grammond’s Top Five Favorite Comedy-Related Things I Did in 2012 That May Make Me an As*hole

As the year winds down, WitOut collects lists from comedy performers and fans of their favorite moments, comedians, groups, shows, etc. from the last year in Philly comedy. Top 5 of 2012 lists will run throughout December–if you’d like to write one, pitch us your list at contact@witout.net!

Comedians love two things: giving themselves too much credit and giving their friends and peers a hard time in the name of having fun. And they also probably love their families and other stuff. Here are my five favorite things I did in 2012 that may make me an as*hole but myself and others enjoyed:

1. Sent Mentos an email to a YouTube link with a message saying “someone’s using your product to promote date rape.”

2.
Voted for myself in every category something I was involved in was nominated in for a WitOut award.

3. Conspired with other comedians to let Rob DeSantis’s comment in a Twitter thread just hang after he went racial with it.

4. Having this song lyric I made up stuck in my head for a week:

We gonna fly down to
Osage Avenue.
And set the block on fire.

5.
Asking Pat House “New Foo Fighters sweatshirt?” when he was always wearing the same Foo Fighters sweatshirt. ALWAYS.

Jim Grammond is a comedy performer and writer based in Philadelphia. He performs stand-up wherever they’ll have him, and is the host of Reasonable Discourse with Jerks, a monthly panel comedy show at Philly Improv Theater . Jim is also a writer for The Monthly Hour with James Hesky and a sketch performer with The Flat Earth.
