The Urgent Necessity of Comedy

Posted by on September 5 at 12:19 PM

I don’t know if it’s always this way at Bumbershoot (didn’t seem so last year anyway), but this time I’ve been shut out of every comedy show I’ve tried to catch. Crowds are overflowing the Charlotte Martin Theatre this year. In light of recent events, laughter seemingly is more necessary than ever. Natural disaster + incompetent government + mismanaged illegal war = comedic boom times.
