Parents giving kids a time out is source of amusement for comedian Bill Bellamy, a former MTV VJ. “My Mama didn’t know nothing about a time out,” he says. “She had a knock out. My mama would knock your ass out wherever you committed the crime. ‘He’ll be out for 20 minutes. I do this all the time.’ ”
Simply going from town to town can provide inspiration as well.
“I talk about my life on the road,” he says. “Like when I went to Nashville. They are so Southern and they really are nice people. When you’re in (most cities) people don’t really talk to you. But everybody in the South is like ‘Hi, how are you? Welcome to Nashville!’ ”
Bellamy’s TV credits include Last Comic Standing, Hot in Cleveland, Chelsea Lately and Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?
