Side-splitting laughter

Comedian T-Murph brings student body to tears

Hailing from Chicago, comedian T-Murph started his comedy career in an unexpected place-- a barber shop. 

After telling jokes to clients, they encouraged him to try stand-up. One night he decided to do just that and went to an “open-mic” night.  

Fast-forwarding from that night, he has been on numerous specials and had been featured on several online videos and comedy specials.  

Most recently, he has been booked to appear alongside Kevin Hart on “Just for Laughs” and recently started touring to various college campuses. 

He started his college tour to show his son that college is something to be experienced and to significantly build his life-long, young fanbase. 

Appealing to the younger crowd is something that many comedians do but the personal views of some artists and performers can bleed into their work.  

Some might think from his act the T-Murph has some opinions about Trump and his connected parties but when asked he gave an unexpected answer. 

The young comedian said that he never trusts any president, “All Presidents suck.” He even went on to say that “You’re paying to be lied to.”  T-Murph also stated that he has no intention of swaying his audience in any way. 

The young comedian said he believes that individuality is the spice of life and that nobody should ever be forced to think any one thing and that would be his one message to give to his audiences.
