I’ve given this some considerable thought and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to watch more comedy. As a youngster, I watched so much that I could almost unconsciously fall into an Eddie Izzard impersonation but somewhere along the line I got all serious about things. It’s not that some things don’t need to be seriously addressed, it just that sometimes it’s easier to discuss and absorb information when you can laugh at it.

Laughter is a a tonic and comedy can be a serious business, discussing important issues and bringing disparate groups together. I should definitely watch more comedy. This is my pledge.
