If you have not see the magic of John Roberts — the gay comedian who plays his mother in an excellent series of web videos — then you’re abusing your unrestricted access to YouTube. But with nearly two years passing since John’s infamous “Mother’s Day” sketch, we’ve been without a constant stream of so-simple-and-stupid-it’s-funny skits from likable gay funnymen. Enter Joseph Birdsong.
The Arkansas-to-Philadelphia YouTuber absolutely delivers with “Get Outta Town” (above), its creation he explains like so: “Me and Tyler were skyping this morning and I told him to get outta town. That phrase goes back a ways in my vocabulary. My bff Ashton used to always say it in high school and we would just laugh and laugh for no reason. I got the accent from Drop Dead Gorgeous (one of my favey movies of all time). Anyway, Tyler and I just started yelling it back and forth say all sorts of random things with it. He suggested a video for it, so all that credit goes to him definitely.” And he’s going to make it a recurring character! “Thanks to Tyler, she has a name, and I already wrote out a future video for her.”
If you don’t laugh, that’s your own prerogative. But Joseph is our newfound comedic treasure.
In the meantime, he hosts the apropos It’s Rarely Sunny in Philadelphia:
And if you want, you can go through all his videos and watch him grow up over the years. Like in this spot, from two years ago:
Joe is the best most personable of the new talent around. way 2 go Joe!
Joe is so awesome!
I love Joe and the rest of the 5 Awesome Gays!
If Queerty start’s making fun of. . .well . .F*&# You in advance.
Many of us have supported, encouraged, and enjoyed this young man for a very long time.
He is talented, and funny, and has more heart in his little pinky fingernail than Queerty could ever hope for.
So again . . .F*&# You in advance.
He doesn’t need a sandwich assholes.
I think he is just the cutest little thing!
He’s cute. He’s funny. He just isn’t straight acting, so I guess someone like “starightactingguy” Erik would have no interest.
I was expecting him to be annoying, but he’s not. And he has the kind of self-depreciating humor that I love in comedy.
what a fucking loser and freak. No wonder heteros hate us.
I can’t stand this whining bitch and I heard from Stevie that he was bad in bed. Who does he think he is? Someone in Philly should teach him a thing or too for talking all the trash.
In the first vid he is channeling Sarah Palin like a pro lol
And just wanted to add that it is great that we have come a long way from the boy who got to crying under a sheet because people were mean to Britney. He’s hilarious, I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
One of my favorites is his take on cell phone ring tones:
yeah, whatever happened to that freak loser who cried for Britney? I hope he’s in jail.
he is hilarious!
who is this freak here and why is queerty giving him time? God, nuke all these freaks!
Is he related to Cindy Birdsong?
Is this the new Noel Coward?
Man oh man [or is that boy-oh-boy?] can this guy do the accents! Very funny. I’d love to see him on Comedy Central.
Haters here: just ignore Birdsong like we ignore you. A deal’s a deal.
