The ‘jazzification’ of stand up comedy continues
And of comedy “criticism,” as can be seen in the (surprise!) pretentious, painful-to-read example SHECKY points out, adding:
We’re not so sure stand-up can be saved.
Meanwhile — “comedy” people continue to talk like this (i.e., your mom):
Valid points are made on both ends (…) Comedians should be able to work through their material, which sometimes involves over-indulging in hubris. And paying audiences don’t deserve to be meant to feel bad [sic]. Let’s hope this is the end of the dispute…
Remember when the saying used to be, “Were you dropped on your head as a child…?”
We’re gonna need to change it to, “Did your mother make you wear a helmet all the time…?”
