To honor the dying of Gilbert Gottfried, Fairly A lot Pop addresses jokes like the Sep 11 one he was pilloried for. Can comedy actually be “too quickly” in relation to tragic subject material? Is comedy actually tragedy plus time, or are jokes most wanted instantly when ache and discomfort are most acute?
Your host Mark Linsemayer is joined by three comedians: Adam Sank (of the LGBTQ-themed Adam Sank Present), Twitch-streaming songster Meri Amber, and returning visitor Daniel Lobell (graphic novelist and podcaster). We get into tailoring jokes for an viewers, dealing with grief, and naturally some speak about triggering, hyper-sensitive audiences, and cancellation (Chapelle, anybody?).
