Tim Moffett is known as the Ag Comedian, as he blends comedy and farming into a finely tuned and unique craft. He likes to combine everyday life on the farm and stand-up comedy to show everyone there is always something to smile and laugh about - even in agriculture. Tim frequently performs at agriculture conventions, fairs, business meetings, corporate events, and even at family reunions.
Tim joins me today to discuss comedy in agriculture, a side to the industry most think doesn’t exist. He shares his family background and how he discovered his passion for comedy. He discusses some of his favorite comedic materials and how he engages with his core audience. He also shares his opinions on the idea of organic farming and vaccinations.
“Not just in agriculture, but life can get you down. Sometimes you just need a good laugh.” - Tim Moffett
