Hey Steve: Breaking the News to Dad


– Alright, let’s go. Where’s Deshaun? (audience clapping) Hey, Deshaun. (audience clapping) – Hey, Steve. I’ve been with my boyfriend
for about four years now and we’re thinking about
moving in together. But, the problem is, my dad’s a pastor and he doesn’t believe in
shacking up before marriage. Now, I love my dad, and I respect him, but how do I tell him? – How you tell him what? (audience laughs) – That we gonna move in together. – Oh, you gonna do it? (audience laughs) Oh, you just wanna find a way to tell him? – I gotta figure out how to tell him, yes. – “Oh! Daddy, hi. (light laughter) I’m fixin’ to move in with my boyfriend and we not getting married.” – We gonna get married, just later. (light audience laughter) – Okay, I don’t understand. – I mean I just wanna know how to… okay, put it this way, when… a couple months ago, my little sister had asked, she was like, “So, Dey Dey, when are
you and your boyfriend, gonna move in together?” Then my dad interrupted and he said, “When they get married.” – Yeah. – So. – Which is same thing I would say. – Aah (sighs). I mean… (laughter)
(audience clapping) Touche. – I mean, – Touche. – I mean, I’m a father. – Yes. – I have four daughters. – Yes – I’ve told all my daughters,
don’t even come to me with this here foolishness. – Uh huh. – If this boy thinks enough of
you, he wanna live with you, then let’s sign up to live together. – True that. – I mean, it’s no problem,
look I’m not old fogey now, people live together, that happens. I got it. I’m not knockin it. But I’ve just told my daughters, that ain’t the way we gonna do it. – Got it. – You know. So, now why do you wanna live with him? – Well we both live in
LA and it’s extremely- – Expensive. Yeah. – Expensive. And I also feel like there’s
a lot of things that you can learn about people after living with them. All of my roommates that I’ve had before, there were so many things
that I learned about them, that, like just our living
styles didn’t really coincide. And, I didn’t know that
until after some time that we had spent together. – Yeah, but you wasn’t
sleepin with them roommates. – (laughs)
True that. – So you fixin to tell your pastor daddy. That you sleepin with this boy, and y’all gonna move in together. – Mmm. – There’s no good way to
break that to your father. – I understand. – You just go in there and tell him, “Dad, I’m grown and this
is what I’m gonna do.” But he gonna be hurt. He gonna be hurt, you’re his princess, he gonna be hurt. He took care of you his whole life. He did the best for you. Now you just gonna go in there you just gonna hurt your daddy like that? (audience laughs)
(audience clapping) – Steve, you’re guilting me. (laughs)
