Hey everybody. Jen Hatmaker here, your host of the For the Love Podcast. You guys, welcome to the show. This is so fun. This is some of my favorite stuff to do on this show in a series called For the Love of Funny, and I love all the serious and sober-minded and important and big conversations that we host on the show. But I also love to laugh and I love funny people. If I had my druthers, we’d be doing a humor series like every third series. I’ve been so looking forward to this one and for good reason today we have a hilarious trio on and you probably know them already. Today we have Trey Kennedy and his wife Katie and Jake Triplett on the show. I love these guys. I’ve been consuming Trey’s content for years.
He is so funny and he’s got these short videos that you’ve positively seen and I think I just relate to so much of his stuff. I grew up in a similar way–in church every time the doors were open and sort of in the buckle of the Bible belt and that is a ton of their source material. I think just for me, because it’s so familiar, it’s hysterical, but no matter what your childhood was, they are hilarious. Trey is a comedian who actually got his start on the Vine app. Talk about a throwback! Now you can find them everywhere on Instagram, YouTube and TikTok. So the three of them Trey, Katie, and Jake are co-hosts of a podcast in their fourth year called Correct Opinions and they’re known for absolutely roasting people with crafted burns. Katie’s there–she slaps her “that’s enough” button when Trey and Jake get to be just too much.
When we talked today, they were in the middle of a really great international tour, which is so exciting for them. We talk all about their rise and their beginnings and how this turned into an absolutely real job and what it has been like for them. These guys are so funny. They’re super well-versed in pop culture and slang and what all the kids are up to these days. You’ve got to check out their YouTube because their videos, their impersonations have earned them a massive following, massive. They find humor in just every little thing and then they say what we’re all thinking. They’re so good at what they do. People write into their show begging to be roasted. That’s how funny they are. I just completely enjoy this conversation. I so enjoy funny people. I love talking to them about their process, about their creative energy, about their sort of comeuppance, and these guys did not disappoint.
I’m so pleased to share with you my conversation with the incredibly hilarious Trey Kennedy, his beautiful wife, Katie, and Jake Triplett.
