Public Philosophy: Steve Simone Standup Storytelling

STEVE SIMEONE: “I think that as a society we’re really good at judging each other instead of loving each other. And if you look at the world now never in my life has it been so segmented. Everybody’s at each other’s throats. Like if you just walk down the street and smile, people are like, “Look at that prick! I wish he was dead.” Everybody’s so angry. Right? Old people versus young people, rich versus poor, black versus white, gay versus straight — everybody’s judging, judging, judging, judging. When deep inside? We’re just little kids that just want to hang out, love, and have some laughs. And here’s the great thing: the less you judge, and the more you love, you’ll stop judging yourself and you’ll start loving yourself, and you’ll be a source of that happiness for other people. So that’s what I’m here to tell ya. Stop judging and start loving, good night and god bless you.”

If you’ve read the above and listened to the clip, my guess is Steve would want to extend this generous offer posted on an Reddit AMA to you:

“Send me your clips to if you want. I would love to see them. If you’re ever in LA, please send me a message and i’ll put you on the guest at the comedy store, so you can see for yourself.”
