asseater007 : LMFAOOO he’s funny but what he’s saying is soo true

Gustavo S. : Actually he’s not joking

kelven little : Lol all the people mad about the "failed in life" comment... Maybe it's *almost* as insulting as high school and college students assuming the entire continent of Africa is some mud hut wasteland where everyone is starving and drinking muddy parasite infested water? And that they could somehow help? Yes, you see the commercials asking for donations because some villages are like that. Some places in the States and Canada are just as bad. No clean water for decades. Extreme poverty. Low life expectancy. High infant mortality. Etc. Etc. Using comedy to make a point and it hits too close to home for some 😂😂

The Henryssons life : Exactly like here in Sweden, its people who have failed in life that brag about helping in Africa

Mobie Mapolisa : I am reading comments to see people who are still working at the mall

Unity : LOL preach man preach

cholericqlare : “And I went out to help in Uganda.Ah! “ The sarcasm is in that playfully condescending way we explain nonsense as Ugandans is too much. 🤣🤣🤣

G : Hoping he doesn't truly look down at people working at malls, nothing wrong with that. Retail workers work hard and there's nothing wrong with wanting to help people. But it is comedy so it's just a joke, nothing to take too seriously.

Joseph Buckingham : I love this. All the western tourists give the doctors and engineers who go to developing countries to genuinely help the population or transfer and teach skills and vocations a bad name by taking selfies and setting up tire swings. If you're going to travel to the developing world for a humanitarian reason do it for the good of their country - doing so for a vanity project on social media just disrespects their culture and nation.

Christine Nalubega : And they always want to tell the whole world about how they helped out in AFRICA. Ask them what did you do there. Oh we gave out clothes

Krystina James : Lol as a Community Worker that still has a job at the mall... He's right lol. They don't need my help. 😂

luname : Pff she could be a university student supporting herself through working at the mall

jimmyfly : It’s funny cuz it’s true.

Nadia : All the mad ppl in the comments! LOOOL he's right

Mejja Jk : Dudes here be like"that's not a joke" yeah it's true,comedy comes from what goes on daily throughout our lives,presented on an audience like a proverb and a laughter at the same time😂

Snore Lax : Some twat from lulu lemon can go to africa and build a well. Somehow the local africans can't manage it. This always bothered me.

StarShynInNow : He is a BEAUTIFUL, black man!

Niqq Kerah : I disagree with this comedian on the "Failed in life" part. but however as an african its offensive sometimes that yall are so ignorant of whats actually happening. we here know everything about you guys but the perception of africa to y'all is a jungle or a poverty stricken place that is doomed with disease poverty, hunger and all that, but thats what your media is feeding you guys. Most countries here are alright apart from sections here and there. So the comment from that girl was kinda offensive to him because if you have a big house stocked with food, you'd find it offensive when someone tells you that they came to feed your family.

Sam Jr : Entertain a problem after crippling a countries system and killing every good leader that doesn’t worship fake democracy the same sins y’all did to build your countries and once you are done you send your kids to sing kumbaya, this world man 😏

MarklarsonTube : 115 people are over 21 and work in a mall

Yasmin Sayeed : Preach , Africa is a continent not a country many parts of it have better education and living than parts of the west tbh he’s speaking mad facts ✊🏾

DIANA GUEVARA : Savage AF. Respect.

Mildredpearl Kagoda : My dear Fellow Country man, You forgot to add 1. how we are fine tuning hanging gays. 2. how *helping* whites come to prey on our children with their sexual perversions. 3. how we racist...and that's why their so flock to Kenya, we don't need them killing our sisters, leaving them pregnant, physically abusing them,...... 4. how we have gorillas and we don't want what happened to Harambee to happen to them.

A D : This man isn’t bashing the intelligence or skills of people in retail. He’s referring to the voluntourism industry that sells “the experience of a lifetime” to people looking to see an exotic part of the world. Volunteering + cool travel adventure = opportunity for anyone with enough money to pay for it. These companies rely on money from people attending their trips to survive. Really, you’re just there doing the easiest, most benign task they can find for you and you’re thinking “wow, I’m really helping out the poor Africans.” Tourists who go on these trips are silly if they don’t realize that they are doing anything a local could do.

AgeDrain : If its a 21 year old at a mall then they are probably just working through college. I know its joke but its not very funny when it’s questionable

Lindo Mathenjwa : Im 25 and I work at the Mall...I guess I have failed in life so says the joke.

Martin Heath : Uganda = Oil = a rich and corrupt elite stealing the country's resources to buy palaces, London real estate, champagne and private jets while their people starve. Hilarious country

T. R. : The comedy guy (and those like him) is deeply ignorant and a snob. One of the main reasons why people in his home country are in such predicament and despair. Research showed that the poor give the most to poorer people, rich folks do very little to nothing in comparison, they don't care.

youngmane : Wait, so being a 30-something no-name comedian is considered more successful than working in a mall? Is what you do and where you live indicative of whether you're doing well?

Variety Stuff : I haven't failed in life. Not yet

Maximilian : Hmm, interesting. Girl tries to help out, gets berated by a comedian. Only in 201X.

Soul man : That's wrong, it doesn't matter where you work help is help. Comedian should think twice before stand.

Clarissa Gafoor : Not Nigerians! I KNOW those ladies are smarter than I am....and Asian ladies....and ladies from Uganda...etc!etc!!

Eliza : She took three weeks off of a mall job to travel abroad? Yeah, she's definitely a rich kid who just lost her mall job.

jessicaaudate : Ooohhhh that was funny! (Can I get a job there so I can take three weeks off, please?)

Екатерина Архангельская : That's just rude. Maybe she doesn't have any special expertise, but she had time and hands that she was willing to give to help somebody. And he just offenses her because she works in a shop?

AK33M : He got one thing wrong. There's no way you can afford apartment over here by only working at the mall.

Nelle : I don't agree at all, i think the joke was bad. MANY places in Africa need help with everything, money, plantation, farmwork, people giving vaccines or organising food and water hand-outs, people that build houses or even English teachers, Math teachers etc. it's not just engineers and doctorsthat are needed in places that suffer. I'm not saying you are going to help out by going to cape town..Africa has many gorgeous and modern cities. But let's not pretend that it's as good in Africa as in Canada. However people bragging about going to any country to do volunteer work, is kind of ridiculous to me, saying and spreading word is fine...but bragging is something else. But don't say that: 1. People who work in malls have failed in life 2. Or that they are the ones bragging about going to africa, that's not true..maybe people who have less prioritize a life of helping others than earning money. so yeah wrong on every level.

sbarnett37tiger Barnes : I'm 44 and I work in a mall as a cleaner. Yeah flabbergasting I know. But that's not the worst part, I have two degrees, one in science and one in electronic engineering. So anyone who is under 40 and still working in a mall doesn't need to feel so bad. If you want to see a screw up just look at me.

Andre Pierce : Africa is one of the richest continent stuff on the face of the Earth why in the world would people think that they actually need your help if you work in the mall we have minerals under the face of his own surface even technology that most countries don't even have there are hot poor areas in the continent of Africa but there are a lot of very rich areas in Africa also air War stricken errors and property but they're also nice areas and livable areas

Conspiracy Faerie : Elitist twat. There's not enough demand for us all to be mediocre stand-up comedians.

Andrea Smith : And Comedians bring a lot of expertise 😒oh wait he doesn't count because he doesn't go back home to help 😮.....help by the way is a broad spectrum and could mean any kind of help! P.s. unless this dude is Chris Rock, Eddy Murphy, Steve Harvey, Somore , Wanda Sykes or any number of interesting known comedians I would say being a mediocre comedian is not the biggest success in life either speaking of failures.

DragonAurora : "All of you think you're better than us." Well I'm pretty sure there's a reason you're saying that. The word "insecurity" comes to mind...

Billie Maier : Working at the mall or not ... if you can afford to take 3 weeks off of work to travel to another country you aren't failing at life. You might have questionable taste in leisure activities, but not failing at life.

the1tigglet : Unless Black Panther is real, and they are secretly hiding some advanced technology in a city built on a vibranium crater, I'd say anyone being sent to his country to help would have more skill than the most advanced person in his country simply by way of watching hours of science and nature videos on TV.

Victoria Whitlock : he right

06SoccerStar 06SoccerStar : Well at least that girl was trying to make a difference...

q8rogue : if you are a spoild kid or a failer in life you should go to africa to appreciate your life and what you have , its not just for helping them out , its also to help you out

the1tigglet : Sad, when people from countries who are failing come to America and claim that there's no issues with their government. sigh

rahn45 : This is just a funny of saying "Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime. No one there needs to learn about trying to fit a pair of pants that are too small for a person to wear.
