This kid has a great stage presence. I died when he said "It was just a joke, the priests aren't registered". Hopefully we will see him again in the future.

[–]jazzrz 147 points148 points  (1 child)

And then capped it again with “just relocated”. That was when I died.

[–]yoshinosumoto 284 points285 points  (30 children)

That was pretty good delivery but I think he rushed it just a tad cuz he’s eager to drop the punchline. His applause pause wasn’t timed perfectly as a result. He will undoubtedly perfect this with more experience.

[–]Nuguns21 127 points128 points  (1 child)

you criticizing the minor details means hes gonna get somewhere. Hes got all the basics just need reforming with practice

[–]LynnisaMystery 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This was two years ago too, it would be awesome to see if he’s kept up with his comedy.

[–]readparse 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I thought the timing of that was pretty good. He gave the crowd time to react. You could tell he had another punchline coming up, but he didn't talk over the applause and the final punchline landed solidly.

[–]eye_no_nuttin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes, I agree! :) He showed a little bit of nerves when he would awkwardly grab that extra sip of water, but he did a fantastic job for 14! I really got a kick out of it! That was my generation he was joking about and all is true!Lol!! 😊

[–]eye_no_nuttin 62 points63 points  (18 children)

I think your critique is sincere and positive:) I love this kid!! If he sees this on reddit by any chance, he deserves GOLD!! I loved the joke about the grandparents and cigs:) Soooo True!Lol!! He is really going to go places with his appealing stage presence:) 😊👍🏻

Jesus Christ.

[–]dustarook 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Do you really think so? I always pictured jesus a bit older and with a beard.

[–]HokieScott 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was his first too. Pretty damn good for first time. Better than a lot of traveling comics I’ve seen locally.

[–]RandyMarsh231 2 points3 points  (4 children)

You’re right. The 14 year old on his first time didn’t have perfect timing.

[–]yoshinosumoto 0 points1 point  (2 children)

How do you know it was his first time?

[–]classy_glass7 3 points4 points  (1 child)

14 year-old rocks his first stand-up comedy performance

[–]Sevnfold 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But how do you know?!

[–]163145164150 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's just constructive criticism.

[–]KaneMomona 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally agree, this kids is actually damn funny. Hope there are some more clips out there.

[–]penutbuter07 1205 points1206 points  (26 children)

"You know what grinds my gears, Tim?" That killed me

[–]nycdiveshack 106 points107 points  (13 children)

Lol seriously that would have been a great one liner. He could have changed gears and moved onto another joke and it would have been fine.

[–]veneratio5 2 points3 points  (12 children)

I don't get it.

[–]nycdiveshack 107 points108 points  (11 children)

For me at least the phrase “grinds my gears” would be used by someone much older than him. Using the phrase in regards to Tim who is much older than him and the whole set it seemed he was making a point to show the difference in life because of their ages. So for him to use that phrase as a set up for a joke I found funny.

[–]ds612 20 points21 points  (6 children)

Sounds like something commander data would say.

[–]Historicmetal 70 points71 points  (5 children)

Intriguing... The joke draws attention to juxtaposition of a teenage boy and the crowd full of adults. Humans find it funny when something unexpected happens.

[–]Gengar1153 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Dude, were you a writer for TNG?

[–]Historicmetal 9 points10 points  (1 child)

lol nope just watched a lot of it

[–]ds612 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm in the middle of watching the next generation myself. Almost done with season 3.

[–]Nickbou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well you did not use a contraction, so we can confirm that you are not Lore.

[–]samjs45 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or maybe he is well versed in dank memez

[–]Stressedout81 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guess he watches family guy

[–]BHSPitMonkey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not sure it's that age-specific, and Family Guy has a recurring bit that uses it. I just liked that he roped Tim into his new bit as though suddenly they're old friends.

[–]Whereistashmyporn 285 points286 points  (8 children)

I laughed harder when he just came back to Tim for no reason.

[–]sneijder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolute perfect timing, and a great initial set up to slam dunk it later.

[–]deathkilll 246 points247 points  (8 children)

Damn. This kid is streets ahead

[–]CavalierTunes 64 points65 points  (0 children)

And if you have to ask what that means, you’re streets behind.

[–]Ser_Dav0s 27 points28 points  (6 children)

Say streets ahead and die.

Edit: Guess no one watches community. If you have to downvote you're streets behind.

[–]LaterGatorPlayer 18 points19 points  (1 child)

“streets ahead and die.”

[–]Teepeewigwam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You sound like that guy from Honest Trailers.

[–]Adekhe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I do! Sorry, buddy. We’ll get that movie.

Annie's Boobs, incoming.

[–]ladytortor 322 points323 points  (11 children)

“You know what grinds my gears Tim?” Exceptional delivery! 👌🏼

[–]shuldagot_a_squirrel 176 points177 points  (3 children)

I'm a teacher. This kid is spot on.

[–]Teepeewigwam 135 points136 points  (2 children)

Im a former student. We know.

[–][deleted] 292 points293 points  (6 children)

TIL Lawn Darts were banned in 1988.

Also, this was fantastic, much funnier than I expected it to be.

[–]Nikemilly 86 points87 points  (4 children)

That was a real solid performance. Making adults laugh about middles school stuff seems tough, but he made it simple and his delivery was great.

[–]Osiris32 67 points68 points  (2 children)

He's got a few things to work on (enunciation and use of emphasis in the voice), but for a 14-year-old, that was stellar. Once he got the audience into his set he held them there almost the entire time, with just a minor drop as he was doing the "teachers gossiping" bit.

But he got me to audibly laugh while sitting at home, watching him on the computer. More than once. He's got skills, and I hope he keeps it up.

[–]tha_dank 26 points27 points  (0 children)

The bully to the front of the line to grade papers things was my favorite. It was short and to the point without being sort of forced. Kid has a solid 5 minutes here.

[–]toohigh4anal 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The gossiping really was the only weak part. It just felt like he wasn't in on the joke yet.

[–]Bloody_Shits 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even if he did not write all this, you can tell he had a lot to do with the material.

[–]StemsAndLeaves 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very similar. Both awkward but very funny.

[–]Surtysurt 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Is that a laugh track? People are laughing at the end of every line.

[–]HaikuBot9000 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Is that a laugh track

People are laughing at the

End of every line

-Surtysurt (2018)

Did I get it wrong?. Please correct me: /r/HaikuBot9000.

[–]bootywatcher 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No. People want to show support for kids. They will laugh usually after every thing. I've had kids go up before me and kill. Some go up and bomb. But any comedian worth anything will support the next generation.

[–]hillary511 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Honestly, I have Jewish grandparents and he's not wrong here.

Edit: Wow I also went to Jewish summer camp and I've never related to Seth Rogan more in my life.

[–]octobertwins 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I went to Jewish summer camp, too. But I'm catholic. My mom hustled a free camp tuition somehow, and made me pretend I was Jewish and 12 years old (I was 9).

I sent her this postcard. Camp https://imgur.com/a/I6WL6

[–]crucialmuzic 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Didn't anticipate that at all, he definitely has it down. Can't wait to see him again.

[–]matthewjc 67 points68 points  (7 children)

That is the easiest crowd ever

[–]btmcbrayer 10 points11 points  (6 children)

I can’t believe how deep I had to scroll in the comments to see this. He comes out and his first line about everyone looking old melts the room. Cringe.

Being 14 definitely padded the humor. Most of which was pretty.... blah, at best. A couple good lines.

[–]omgwutd00d 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I don't want to shit on the kid because he did well and he's just starting out, but I like to think that a lot of the laughter was because he was better than anyone actually expected him to be.

Since he's young, obviously this humor works for him but I guess time will tell if he can still be funny without relying on "I'm young" type of jokes. But shit, the main thing is to know your audience and he killed it.

[–]kaanimas 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I cringe harder seeing an (I assume) adult being hypercritical of a 14 year old.

The kid was pretty funny and I'm mostly impressed by his "blah" willingness to be in front of a comedy club crowd at 14. I'm certain most adults would be pretty nervous to do that!

Don't be salty because he's young--we all start somewhere. :)

[–]notmyrealnam3 13 points14 points  (2 children)


You’re a real follower aren’t ya?

[–]Major_T_Pain -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ya... I mean, he wasn't bad. But, Jesus, the comments in here are as bad as the crowd in the video: "hey, so what's up with those Bluetooth headsets?" *crowd erupts into fits of laughter, the ground shakes, begins to split open due to the screams of laughter pouring forth from the audience*

[–]ILike2DrinkOnWkndz 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Roche = Rock in French.

I see what you did there, OP.

[–]PinheadLarry2323 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I thought the guy in the intro was supposed to be the 14 year old at first.

[–]LiveWithFear 30 points31 points  (4 children)

"... all of you look really old to me".


[–]btmcbrayer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This comment is funnier than anything in the actual stand up. Honestly.

[–]deadsoul88 1 point2 points  (2 children)

that wasnt a good joke ?

[–]LiveWithFear 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It's because it wasn't even a joke

[–]deadsoul88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You no nothing about Comedy , its okay , I mean I am not great at everything either.

[–]diegojones4 38 points39 points  (2 children)

That was absolutely great. Original and very natural.

[–]thegoodmanhascome 28 points29 points  (0 children)

This kid has some serious talent

[–]natneo81 15 points16 points  (4 children)

I went into this with high hopes but was disappointed. Every child comic just makes jokes about their age and it gets on my nerves, especially when everyone seems to act like they're a comedic genius. Man, I sure hate HOMEWORK and TEACHERS! Us millennials have it easy am I right?

I guess that's just me though, as long as people enjoy it good for him.

[–]TheGreenBastards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's young, it's all he knows. He's abnormally talented for 14, and hopefully his material will change as his life changes. I couldn't do what he just did, and I'm 32.

[–]DaTigerMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What else is possibly going on in his life that he can joke about?

[–]limegreenlegend 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah, I thought it was shit too, but I find most American humour shit.

[–]tonesng 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dude has way more confidence than I do. Props to him! Good authentic jokes. Wish him the very best.

[–]vahustle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I laughed when he came back and made the conversation personal between he and Tim.

[–]-hey-ben- 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Best comment lmao

[–]pofwiwice 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty energetic for a comedy club

[–]TheMuscle 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Not a single comment about both guys wearing the exact same shirt with jeans? Thought that was a little odd.

[–]bovinejumpsuit 22 points23 points  (0 children)

they go to middle school together, must be the uniform.

[–]dus3d 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Kid has a future in comedy.

[–]ThaRudistMonk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And from the looks of the of this video a past in comedy as well.

[–]toxicpiano 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Crazy. I don't even remember what the hell I was wasting my time on when I was 14.

Kid has a future, good for him.

[–]leonryan 5 points6 points  (1 child)

for me The Simpsons had just begun and I was doing anything I could to see a boob.

[–]730_50Shots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tryna see boobs through squiggly lines at 1am on tv when everyone was asleep.

[–]19JRL90 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great Spotlight reference.

[–]Evan-Arthur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m guessing it’s not too funny because I’m not old...

[–]JBTheGiant1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit that was great, so random, he is hilarious

[–]peacebuster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did the host and the kid coordinate outfits?

[–]SpankyTheFish 6 points7 points  (3 children)

This lads great! Edinburgh fringe, if his parents are in this thread anywhere you gotta get him there. His career will rocket. Best of luck young man your funny as fook!

[–]ShouldveFundedTesla 6 points7 points  (2 children)

You know they're not gonna see this right?

[–]Contende311 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure his classmates use Reddit. His entire town is gonna know by sunrise, including his parents. They just might read the comments.

[–]SpankyTheFish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you never know

[–]JorahTheHandle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Remember the name, I have a feeling this won't be the last time we see him on Reddit, mostly because someone will repost this tomorrow, ba dum tiss!

[–]joelrules1984 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Holy crap that was bad. I didn’t even smile once. So bad.

[–]sherekhantwait 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That crowd was so obnoxious too.

[–]slathammer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pretty sure whoever posted this paid for upvotes/comments. This was absolutely awful. First joke made me turn it off.

"I can't go to 7/11 and buy my grandparents cigarettes like my parents could!"

Your parents weren't allowed to do that either. Kids from the 60s might have done that. Your parents were born in the 80s dude.

[–]alphanovember 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or just some of the /r/wholesomememes-type chaff. These people have been taking over the site for the last few years.

[–]cedarpark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

His closer was designed for simple minds.

[–]s7uck0[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Calling adults out on their procrastination was ballsy and fucking funny.

lol'd at this.

[–]SkylaFotia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can confirm. Middle school teacher here, some teachers are as bad as the students.

[–]TheGreenBastards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a teacher, I appreciated his jokes on school. Those teachers do exist, and boy, I hated (and still hate) them, too.

[–]JEZTURNER 1 point2 points  (0 children)

is it me or is the audience laughter a little over the top? I mean it was mildly amusing...

[–]curethiscancer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He killed it. Great job!

[–]30thCenturyMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can't wait to see this video in 15 years when it's titled "Young Dylan Roche wows the crowd in his first public appearance!"

[–]iosx324 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I anticipated so much cringe, but he delivered everything so well. I hope he continues to do comedy, he's really funny.

[–]thumbs5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember my first standup routine and I was nowhere near as cool and collected as this kid and I was 26.

[–]Undoxable123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

overwhelmingly unfunny

[–]s1ssycuck 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Fuck, he was actually good.

[–]riptide747 0 points1 point  (13 children)

Wasn't this just posted a week ago?

[–]fucking_troll 107 points108 points  (5 children)

Great. I didn't see it then because I'm not literally on Reddit 24/7 , so due to a repost I was able to see it. Fantastic use of a repost.

[–]Osiris32 29 points30 points  (0 children)

I'm nearly on reddit 24/7, and I didn't see it, either.

[–]sch00lb0y 3 points4 points  (4 children)

was posted a week ago, keep seeing it in my suggested videos even though I don't watch standup on youtube or 14 year olds

[–]ccxxv 3 points4 points  (0 children)

yes it was -_-

[–]wasteplease 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, gotta milk those kids for karma before they get too old

[–]Beibo 4 points5 points  (1 child)

lmao who finds this shit funny

[–]btmcbrayer 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]GroundbreakingVisual 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Awesome, very funny and good jokes. Hopefully he sticks with this. Much better than a lot of amateur comedians I've seen. Really good stage presence for a kid - you could tell he was a little nervous but nailed it anyway

[–]VersatileDoubt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg when the video first started I thought “THAT guy is 14?!” But no he’s just the announcer

[–]KroniK907 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't want to diminish the performance, cause if was great... But I doubt this was his very first performance. Probably just his first filmed routine.

[–]szmytie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is guna be high standards for him after this! Amazing work.

[–]flarpington -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

Every critique in this thread sounds ridiculous. He was 14 and fucking killing at a comedy club. Dude will probably have his own sitcom in a few years.

[–]slathammer 0 points1 point  (2 children)

How do you actually figure that?

"Killing it" it so horribly subjective depending on the place/time. This kid would have gotten 0 laughs if he had performed in my city.

[–]s7uck0[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You're wrong though.

There were plenty of people there imo and he had them all laughing, over and over again. That humor was generational, for certain ages, unless everyone where live is over 50, these jokes would land. I'm all the way up in north eastern Alberta, and it's COLD as fuck here...but those jokes had heat and you betcha im toasty now. He was killing it. There and probably anytime he wants. Good on the lad, funniest 14 year old I've ever seen.

I've NEVER been to a comedy club, i'd imagine there aren't many acts that bomb. But I know that this, was a 14 year old kid at a comedy bar that had more than 10 people in it and he had them all cheering and laughing. That is not bombing by no means, possibly the best act of the night. That counts man. I figure that is worth something. This is good.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see him on Netflix somewhere.

[–]slathammer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’ve been to open mic more times than I can count and i can tell you that 25% bomb, 50% are mediocre, and 25% are pretty good.

Like I said before, if this was an open mic in my city (which is a large metropolitan area) he would have bombed. He would have maybe received a few pity laughs. I can, without a doubt, guaranteed that.
