FRANKLYN AJAYE ON POPEYE, ASIAN STUDENTS.
The comedy of Keith Barany (“Bare-a-knee”) is often described as original, gentle and brilliant because he is known for fast and witty ad libs. The New York Post called him “The wittiest comedian working. His ability to laugh and make people laugh at things we’ve all been through demonstrates an intelligence and understanding that the world is a funny place, no matter who you are or your station in life. Barany is not only a stand-up comic but a comedy writer. He has written for well known TV shows such as “ The Emmy Awards ,” “ Politically Incorrect ,” “ The Jimmy Kimmel Show ,” and the comedy show of comedy shows, “ Seinfeld. He’s performed in concert with John Stewart , Jerry Seinfeld , Joan Rivers , Ray Romano and many others, as well as entertain US troops many times during his more than 30-year career. Barany: I started a little over 31 years ago, before I graduated from college— New York State. So that’s why I wasn’t in the same circuit as most comedians. Barany: I could tell you who I think is great, but as far as influences, I’m clueless about that. At different times people have told me I remind them of Jerry Seinfeld or Jay Leno , who are very dissimilar—maybe Seinfeld and Letterman , who is a remarkable game changer. I don’t know if I’m influenced or not by iconic comedians like Colin Quinn , who’s a real comedian’s comedian. Who influenced me and who I think is great are two different questions. One of my favorite comedians is Franklyn Ajaye , who was in “ Deadwood “, but was already in standup 30 or 40 years. He’s a great comic, almost like a star, but moved to Australia. I’ve always believed there’s a connection between standup and jazz, and he’s emblematic of that. You’d think he was a jazz player watching him perform standup. Describe your comedy for people who may not be aware. Barany: Of which no one is aware…. I get to the gut laugh. The New York Post called me “the wittiest comedian working. ” Some people think if you’re witty, you’re not funny, but that’s not true. I target the gut with the brain to make people think. I’m not looking to find out how smart someone is. My material used to be all autobiographical until about five years ago, but now I dabble in the universal shared experience more than I used to.
