When Is a Joke “Too Quickly”? — Comedians Focus on on Fairly A lot Pop: A Tradition Podcast #132


To honor the dying of Gilbert Gottfried, Fairly A lot Pop addresses jokes like the 9/11 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?).

Watch Gottfried’s notorious joke your self:
