Its not that stand-up comic Alex Ortiz
doesnt enjoy playing universities. He just prefers comedy clubs. You have to be 100 percent clean in colleges, he says. There cant be any sex or drugs. Thats all I talk about! The domestic jokes that make up a huge chunk of his routine also pose a problem. I talk about being married and having kids, he says. Those kids cant relate to that. I constantly have to tell myself, I cant do this joke, I cant do that joke. Still, he always has the race card. Im half black, half Puerto Rican, which is really messed up, he says. That means I was born a suspect.
