    I love how whenever I watch these, I always see at least two white women that don’t even smile at his jokes. I don’t know if its because of the race jokes or what but they seem offended for no reason

    This is only the 2nd time I've heard rwj, but just from his stiries, the small things he says, notices, the stuff he reacts to and holds dese to him, I can tell, hes a real respectable dude. I dont get that feeling from celebrities very often, bit something about him, all I can say for sure is, he was raised right!!

    The set up of the jokes In this act are genius. I worked at a movie theater, and it used to be like that when regular customers came in and got in line. You already knew what they would order and you can prep it quick.

    I can relate to this entire story except it was Ryan's Buffett and a smaller town I was also a 19 year old server and everybody in my block knew me from waiting on them and all my scrawny a$$ had to worry about was hooking up 30 or so guys with free drinks when and if they ever got out. I knew all the guards/deputies too but they already had free drinks and it was the most enjoyable job I ever had because of all the crew that worked with me had each other's back at the club. Good Ole Days

    Been a fan of Roy since I've learned about him on The Bob & Tom Show back in 2005. After that I discovered all of his prank calls. His stand-up specials get better as time passes. I laugh my ass off when I hear this dude. He has grown so much as an Entertainer
