The Moth presents Anthony Griffith: “The Best of Times, The Worst of Times.”

If you appreciate this, watch more of this father’s comedy here.

Wake up! This is life, this ain’t no damn sitcom.

And Doctors don’t cry.

No one wants to hear the clown in pain.

Man up! Welcome to the real world.

14 applause breaks.

From the video credits:

A comic must earn his living as a clown while suffering the ultimate heartbreak.

Anthony Griffith lives in the mountains of California at 5,000 feet elevation in an animal protected community. It’s much different from the inner city of Chicago where he used to live, but he still travels doing stand-up. He says that the overwhelming positive response of him telling his story at The Moth has prompted him to write my one man show and pen other short stories now in development.
