The world may seem bleak, but comedy has always had a way to lighten the load and inspire the world to overcome the obstacles that we face. Laughter is the best medicine, after all, and Jonathan Mensah is a certified mood changer. Dubbed as Mr. Mood Changer, the esteemed comedian uses the power of social media to reach out to a global audience and make them see the funny side of life despite the troubles that we face in these hard times.
Hailing from Montgomery County, Maryland, Mr. Mood Changer sees comedy as a way to laugh away the worries of the world. “I call myself Mr. Mood Changer because that is what I want to achieve. Every day we are bombarded with issues, challenges, and negativity. But when people see my skits on social media, I want them to have this mood shift. I want them to feel lighter and more joyful after watching me,” explained the comedian.
People are often faced with challenges in their day-to-day lives. Mr. Mood Changer hopes to remedy all the stress that we encounter by putting a smile on our faces and making us laugh. “I started this career because of the love I have for people,” he said, “And I enjoy putting a smile on everyone’s faces when they go to my page and watch my latest skits,” expressed Jonathan.
In spite of the global pandemic ravaging all of our mental capacities, Mr. Mood Changer remained hard at work to create new uplifting content to help the worries go away. “Of course, I am safely doing everything, but I believe people need this extra source of light and joy,” he said.
The esteemed social media comedian grew up as the youngest out of five siblings. He initially struggled to find his place, and the mounting familial pressure did not help him the slightest. “Being the youngest, everyone had high expectations of me. It took a while for me to figure out what I could excel in, but once I found comedy, it all clicked,” shared Mr. Mood Changer.
Fast forward to today, he has finally found his passion for comedy. When creating the concepts for his skits, he gathers wisdom from his family and his community to inspire him. My mom is my number one inspiration,” he said, “She is a strong-willed woman who always went the extra mile for her five babies. Her strength gives me faith in myself and in what I can do.”
“There’s a lot going on in this world. And through comedy, I want to help people realize that there is still light in this world.” It’s clear to see that the comedian is extremely passionate about his craft, and his success is a testament to his hard work and dedication. Apart from spreading positivity as Mr. Mood Changer, Jonathan Mensah also created a platform across the DMV area called the All-In Summer Tour.
The All In Summer Tour is a platform that aims to find basketball players within the DMV area and help them compete with one another in high-level one-on-one basketball games. “Fan favorite basketball players can compete with each other in these games, and the fans can come and watch their sports idols play live,” said Jonathan.
No matter what he does, Jonathan Mensah fully embodies the idea of Mr. Mood Changer. Above all else, he is a man who is passionate about helping others, and his comedy is a powerful vehicle towards his goal. “My ultimate goal is to share good vibes however I can.”
