about

stand-up comedy. I think it is a marvelously important societal role. I feel heartfelt about things, but not so much intellectually. I think a lot of people, most people, are like that. We’ll feel muddled when listening to a politician, but resonate when listening to a comedian even when the points being made are the same. That’s because they put it in away I understand, or am interested in; noy needlessly academic. I hold some comics up to a light so hard that I don’t feel they should be fucked with by anybody. In a way, they are our last true philosophers, the comedy stage the last arena of completely free speech, of safe context. Scholars and the rest of us should be able to understand the blueprints and structure behind the economic scenes. Sometimes there is so much political-speak in the way of simple information that people begin to tune in to shows like The Colbert Report and Last Week Tonight, incorporating them into learning about their world.

-

“I want to change lives, but not be profound about it. I fight hard to not have an editing system. We all, WE all- let context be destroyed- context is gone. I can’t slip up? I can’t say nothin’? You can’t understand what– you don’t FEEL me? You don’t FEEL what I’m sayin’?”

-Patrice O’Neal
