This clip, featuring “A Dyslexic Love Song,” comes from a 2005 appearance by singer, songwriter and comedian Paul Aldrich on Thor Ramsey’s popular clean-comedy series, “Bananas.” It proves that the end is just the beginning and that a love story can be sweet and heartfelt even when told in reverse. Why? Y-H-T-A-K.
This particular tale of “’til death do us part” has the death at the start. It is not time travel. It is not a ghost story. It is dyslexia.
The song is representative of Aldrich’s signature style; he is genuinely funny with an emphasis on genuine. His comedy concerts are a mix of original material, like “Dyslexic Love Song,” and Weird Al style pop-music parodies, like “Stairway to Seven Eleven”. Paul’s comedy will set you laughing with a brand of humor that is funny. His ribbings are always good-natured, and his laugh lines never have a mean-spirited edge. Audiences tap their toes, and they do not mind if the children sing along because the jokes are as squeaky-clean as they are hilarious.
Never without his quick wit or his trusty guitar, Comedian Paul Aldrich is a versatile and multitalented entertainer whose refreshingly family-friendly fare is perfectly at home at a church retreat or charity banquet, and yet just as perfectly suited to more mainstream venues. He has appeared at the Spirit West Coast Christian music festival, on Showtime and at The Improv.
Paul Aldrich knows clean comedy and that Christmastime is all about warmth and merriment. Traditions like families getting together for a fantastic Christmas meal create the brings the kind of happiness that comes once a year and Santa Calus.
There’s one truly creepy tradition that is haunted the holiday season for as long as everyone around today can remember – Santa Claus. Sure, soda commercials and massive budget movies paint St. Nick as a benevolent, loving guy. The unsettling fact is that the man has an all-seeing eye on our kids year round. Up in his isolated den at the North Pole, he is watching children around the world, just waiting for a slip up so he can add them to the dreaded Naughty list.
Then, each Christmas Eve, his disturbing behavior takes a turn for the worst. He flies around the world, no doubt thousands of times faster than any speed limit, to commit literally millions of first-degree burglaries in a single night. Sneaking into our homes, he steals sweets and leaves gifts he could only know to get because of that weird spying habit. The fact that the world is okay with Santa’s deviance is shocking.
Comedian Paul Aldrich knows what the nuisance of the North Pole. He also knows what the famous old Christmas “You Better Watch Out (Santa Claus is Coming to Town)” was meant to sound like. Listen as Aldrich cleverly demonstrates the true nature of Kris Kringle’s activities in this funny comedy song.
