I’ve been watching/listening to/reading as much comedy as possible. I am breathing, eating and sleeping it.
Up until a couple of months ago, I thought I had a very specific taste in comedy but lately I’ve been getting into lots of different types and this confuses me slightly.
I’m finding that I’m liking more controversial and political comedy and that I’m getting bored of safe jokes, one liners and accepted/normal, and maybe even mundane, comedy.
Is this because in the past I was not mature enough to appreciate it or intelligent and aware enough to understand it or is it because I am becoming more cynical and negative and am actively seeking an outlet for it? I’m not sure. But I know that I quite like it.
I find myself naughtily laughing and thinking “this is outrageous!”. And I’ve never felt so alive.
So I’m quite chuffed.
