All Cops Ain’t Bad:

The author, David Reuben, would like to welcome “All Cops Ain’t Bad” to The Comedy Green Room family.

I recently had a zoom chat with Daryll Triplett and Michael Williams two of the great people behind this charitable organization.

Their purpose is to bridge the gap between our cops and the community. We want to show the world that we are “only human”.

They also coordinate and provide support and relief to all current and retired First Responders with an emphasis on “Cops” and “Victims of Police Brutality”.

“All Cop’s Ain’t Bad” bring healing to our Communities and their families through comedy, counseling, peer mentoring, individually and in comedy concert settings, filled with lots of laughter and love.

The goal is to raise awareness through community events, media outlets, social media, service organizations and churches, screaming to the top of our voices that… “All Cop’s Ain’t Bad”.

I first met Paul Adams through his father, comedy writer Charlie Adams. Charlie was the first UK comic on The Comedy Green Room. Charlie suggested I check out his son, stand-up comic Paul Adams.

We hit it off and Paul was invited to perform at The HogTown Comedy Festival (TM) in Toronto ON Canada. Paul decided to move to Toronto and performed in comedy clubs and bars throughout Canada and the USA for about 2 years. Paul's clean and funny comedy style was a refreshing change to the Toronto Comedy Community from 2004 to 2006.

Mr. Paul Adams new book Diary of a Locked Down Comedian is a funny, charming, and insightful look into his pandemic experience. Check it out!
