The Greatest Comedian You’ve Never Heard Of

Minister of Mirth: Grady Nutt

Minister of Mirth: Grady Nutt

I have a special place in my heart for great comedy and as a youngster I thrived off Ray Stevens, Bill Cosby, and Grady Nutt. Most of you recognize 2 of these names but you aren’t familiar with the venerable Mr. Nutt.

Grady Nutt is the best comedian you’ve never heard of. This is a true southern brand of comedy that centers around church and families and it is absolutely hilarious.

I’ve looked for clips of his sketches for years and on a whim decided to try again today (it’s maintenance night and I need something to entertain my ears) and EUREKA; I found the exact album that I played endlessly.

So do yourself a favor and check out “Funny Stories from the Prime Minister of Humor

I recommend you start with “When the Roll is called up yonder”  – My favorite joke of all time. and don’t miss “I have an Odor” and the “Dinner on the grounds“.  I hope you enjoy these bits as much as I do.
