There’s a thought provoking, rainy-day piece over at the New Statesman. It observes that comedy is inherently left-wing and the left is doomed.
“...Chris Rock maintained that stand-up comedy should always be punching upwards.
It’s a heroic little struggle.”
“You can’t be a right-wing clown without some character caveat, some vulnerability, some obvious flaw.”
“You’re on the right. You’ve already won.
You have no tragedy. You’re punching down.”
