Tonight I went to the Punch Line in SF to see comedian Jake Johannsen, who I think is one of the funniest comedians working out there. Even he is thinking and talking about healthcare and a healthy (no pun intended, ok maybe slightly intended) part of his act was about wellness and health care topics. My favorite was this:
“I have to buy my own insurance…$8000 for the family (he and his wife and 6-year old) PLUS a $5000 deductible for each of us separately. One of us better get cancer or I’m getting ripped off. I mean, I don’t want to get cancer, but one of them better get sick or I want my money back.”
I realize it’s not as funny in the translation, but live and with his deadpan delivery it was pretty damn funny.
Also liked,”Not a single person alive today has died. Let’s keep it going people!”
If you need a laugh after a hard week, it’s worth checking Jake out on YouTube or his website. I couldn’t find the health insurance bit, but I do love this one about emergency rooms. Happy Friday!
