“Do you like colors?” These were the first few words I heard from Jeremy’s mouth. I paused for a second and replied, “Yes.”

“Oh! Yellow there!” he replied. Despite the fact it was a bad joke I burst out laughing.

The whole conversation revolved around puns. But there was a darker note to it. Jeremy mentioned losing his entire family to a car accident and living with horrible Foster parents. Growing up was tough for him because they never let him have a proper education. The only thing which stayed with him was his will to laugh and make others laugh with him.

He currently is working in Starbucks to fund his tuition fee as currently, he is pursuing Theatres in New York. Talking to him made me realize how biggest laugh hides the darkest secrets. Can’t wait to connect with him again and ask him to follow a couple of India based Stand-Up Comedians.
