The Case For Comedy
Over the years stand-up comedy has gotten a bad reputation. More often than not people are exposed to comedians trying to be funny by making fun of queer folks. Enter AJ. He helps stand-up comedians who are just starting out by providing feedback. This includes thinking critically on jokes that could be offensive. This way he hopes to create a space in which comedy can be fun for everyone.
I'm really showing my age this episode. There actually was an entire section of the episode in which we talk about being on camera, something your trusty podcast host is not at all used to, never mind comfortable with. Besides, the questions about TikTok have real old person vibes. For example: asking what someone's favourite TikTok is? That's like asking someone for their favourite Tweet. Dang, we don't know.
