Jordan Dumer

Biography

I've read so many rulebooks, I had to throw the rules out and start over.

Creative writer for over a decade, I've written screenplays, essays, and even songs at one point or another. However, my dream is to have a short collection of works from my sites and blogs worthy to rest on a library shelf.

Find my portfolio at, wizdumer.com, the ultimate collection. Popular jokes like Drugs of the Future and The Leprechaun. Powerful poems such as The Pearl and Internal Echoes. And impactful prose like Saturn's Scythe and Spirit Radio.

Find interesting Articles, Jokes and More, visit me at my website, wizdumer.com. Thank you.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your comedy?
Dirty, Silly, Weird, Messy, and needlessly complex, with a hint of folksy wisdom and a splash of sophistication. In short, it's like life, it leaves you with more questions than answers, and forces you to find your own way through the fertilizer, don't expect a masturbatory opus, but a simple ditty with some chuckles along the way.
Thoughts on Comedy in Today's Climate?
People are trying to live double lives (thanks to Social Media and the internet) that have made them extremely hypocritical. It makes it easy to insult, but hard to get people to get that stick out of their butts and laugh whole heartedly at the insanity, pain and brutality that is the human experience. And more than anything else today, that's what people need to get through these dark times, and instead of embracing life and owning it, they'd rather escape and be distracted, and in the end, are robbing themselves of a deeper, fuller, more enriching life.
