SPOKANE, Wash. – We don’t know whether to laugh or be really offended by an internet comedian’s latest video.
JP Sears, who runs the YouTube channel AwakenWithJP, posted a video on Wednesday titled “What Spokane People Are Like.”
Sears is an internet comedian with some videos offering satirical tips for living in a more spiritual and thoughtful manner.
He opened his video about Spokane by making a comparison to our friends in western Washington.
“Spokane is like Seattle, only there’s more sun, more mountains, less ocean and less education,” he said.
Most of his video focused on Spokane residents’ enthusiasm for nature, which he said we take “very seriously.”
“It’s almost like they resent houses,” he added.
In what is likely the most relatable portion of the video for most Spokane residents right now, Sears talked about the weather – specifically snow and cold.
He said we have three months of the year with good weather and 11 where it's miserable. We don't know how that adds up mathematically but it's pretty accurate nonetheless.
“Oh, it’s 20 degrees, windy and snowy? Sounds like a good day for a hike,” Sears said.
“We’ll die of hypothermia with the sun shining on our faces. That sounds pleasant,” he added later.
Sears also expressed disgust for outdoor enthusiasts trying to force hikes on people by labeling them “outdoor walks.”
Later, he mentioned another Spokane staple: breweries.
“You can’t spell Spokane without IPA – kinda. People in Spokane love their breweries. I guess because they like to pretend they live in Portland,” he said.
The video has garnered more than 52,000 views since it was posted on Wednesday.
Sears is performing at the Spokane Comedy Club next Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Attendees must be 21 years or older.
