Shocking. Beyond the pale. Offensive.

So that brings me to Louis C.K. and the comedy problem.

At first, starting within the depression after which by way of the Second World War, sanitized mainstream comedy, which used the mediums of radio, films, and the legitimate stage, tamped down those impulses to be able to attain an enormous viewers by not offending the vast majority of it. For a very long time, this formulation worked. There was no offense in any above-floor leisure. It was safe. It perpetuated the established order—and lulled the viewers into a state of pliant consumerism, as nicely.

So from the end of WWII until the ’60s, whenever you watched a stand up comedian, whether or not they have been Jewish or not, they were doubtless using the type, the shape, the construction of routines, the wording of jokes, the stagecraft, the “act,” as it had been pioneered by the Jews. But this was just one nice seismic force that created fashionable comedy, and frankly, if not obviously, looking back, it spoke mainly, if not solely, to white America. A evening of comedy makes a fantastic present thought for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas or really any event!

And in Arkham Asylum, the influential graphic novel quoted above from heady author Grant Morrison and lavishly psychedelic artist Dave McKean, the Joker lures Batman into the titular madhouse, a minimum of as much for shits and giggles as in hopes that doing so will confront the hero with the reality of his own mental sickness. The Queen City Comedy Experience is Charlotte’s premier comedy pageant match for anybody who loves to laugh! There’s something for everybody – from internationally-identified stand-up comedians to sketch comedy from throughout the nation, podcasts and the best improv groups from the Charlotte area.

Friday 9/27 Events

Catch sketch comedy masters and best pals Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for a half hour of irreverent wit, pop-culture impressions and escalating absurdity. The suave, assured and devastatingly good-looking Sterling Archer may be the world’s biggest spy, but he still has points along with his pals and colleagues who stay to undermine and betray one another. Whether set in 1940s Los Angeles, the jungles of South America or the dangerous islands of the South Pacific, “Archer,” this animated comedy spans time and place to navigate Sterling, Lana, Malory, Cheryl/Carol/Charlotte, Cyril, Pam, Ray and Krieger’s misguided misadventures that vary from making an attempt to avoid wasting the world from nuclear catastrophe to promoting unlawful narcotics to Colombian cartels.
