Three years ago, a charming, 89-year-old man named Chuck Esterly basically broke the internet.
A video emerged of Esterly’s first-ever stand up performance at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati. I know what you’re thinking… “This is going to be 7 minutes of Grandpa jokes.”
I won’t lie to you, there are a few in there. But for the most part, it’s 7 minutes of someone proving that you’re never, ever too old to try something new.
After the video went very, very viral in 2015, Esterly took some heat for not writing his own jokes. But at the end of the day, this is a fun video that will leave you smiling.
