Humour from the heart: Riley Jones

Meet Riley Jones – one of the most uplifting and charismatic personalities you are likely to encounter. Just over a year ago Riley was in a precarious position, as he was forced into an urgent heart surgery. Being subjected to this at a young age, one would forgive Riley for being a reserved, tentative and shy person, however he has defied all odds and provides the community with a unique and natural talent.

Stand up comedy has been an outlet for Riley, an art form he is truly blessed with. His ability to make other people smile is infectious, it’s hard not to laugh when you are in his presence.

“Why dwell on the past, you’ve just got to move on, and you may as well have a laugh while you’re going!”

    your caption is really well written. I love the use of the quote and feel expanding on this could capture Riley’s personality on a deeper level. Maybe next time resize your photo so it’s larger, overall it’s a great post 🙂
