What is your trademark?

Every comedian has a particular “something” or "trademark" that set him/her apart from the rest.

Mr. Bean uses his silence and comic to make people laugh.

Jack Benny used the face in his hand with the classic “well!” to make him popular.

David Letterman uses, among other things, his famous “top ten” list. Rodney Dangerfield has built up his popularity largely on one phrase. “I don’t get no respect!” is used over and over in his shows. And from the stories he tells and the characters he plays in his movies you can understand why!

 A young man in the New Testament had the same problem. Paul tells Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
