Comedy

Stuck in quarantine for more than 4 months in a foreign country where I don’t know anyone and have only a loose grasp on the language, my needs became apparent. I needed to laugh. In English.

In response, the following set of videos were recorded. These are all first runs at applying comedic ideas I had only mentally organized and which could potentially be more fully developed later on.

After a cancer scare during quarantine as well, I started to conceive of my own mortality. It occurred to me that I would derive no greater satisfaction than knowing I might be able to bring a smile to someone’s face even after I was gone.

Coming up with a good rapper name

If you never thought about what your hypothetical rapper name would be, you are grossly unprepared for an emergency and shouldn’t be trusted outdoors in the current environment without a hazmat suit. Shame on you: you’ll never have a better opportunity to contemplate life’s essential questions. Make hay, my child, the sun is shining.
