What’s Funny?

I find clarity in comedy.

When we land on laughter, we land on unity. Laughter in an audience tells me that whatever just happened on stage happened at some point in each of our lives. That sense of connection says “Don’t worry, that awkward/scary thing happens to all of us. It’s not as mysterious as you might think.”

Comedy can neutralize. It can shift perspectives. It can be political, and make us confront realities we’re often too frightened to face.

I don’t think comedy is taken seriously enough.
