I believe the best comedy comes from those battling the biggest demons. As a defense, they use humour just to get through their day. Yes! This IS a good thing, it’s awesome to laugh your troubles away. Sometimes. The sad part about this is they really can’t be themselves with anyone, ever.
They have their job because of their quick wit and charm.
They have their spouse because of the goofiness and finding fun in bad situations.
They have their friends because of the entertainment value.
When can they turn it off? They can’t. There isn’t one person in their life that lets them be real, ever. And crying? Forget it. If everyone around you thinks you are funny, you are the loneliest person on earth. I truly see why comedians kill themselves, people need to be real. If they have to always do that alone, that’s pretty tragic.
Please look around at your friends and loved ones; you see who I’m talking about. Follow the laughter and give them a hug. Hugs mean everything, spread em around.
