I’ve often thought that if we could really see the comedy in the company of strangers—including that which we provide for others!—we would never have to buy a ticket to see a humorist perform again. It’s all out there. It’s the human comedy. So the public places and spaces in our cities and smaller communities are very important—the cafes, the sidewalk cafes, the bookstores, the coffee shops, the city parks, the streets themselves, the athletic events that bring people out in masses. All of these opportunities to realize that we not only can live together, we are living together, and we can do it very well by learning a pretty simple dance. (Excerpt from video)
