Well I’m going to have that stuck in my head all day! Brilliant.
Steve. Of course, that little 4-minute clip contains all kind of lessons on storytelling. Andy foreshadows the punchline. He asks the audience a key question. He paints provocative word pictures: “On his record player behind the barn.” (Only naughty things happen behind barns.) He uses engaging cultural references. He changes voice when appropriate. He employs the rule of three. He doesn’t come off as too polished. And he definitely knows his audience. His comedic timing is pretty good, too.

Now that’s pretty amazing! Loved it!
Thank you, Steve. This clip just gets better and better!
In my Elvis voice I’d like to say, “Thank you! Thank you very much!”
I needed a laugh today.
