I had a list of websites in front of me, too which I the student was supposed to pick from.
So my options where basically a bug, a show about a 16 year old pregnant girl, a baseball movie, and an animated series about corporate toys. I chose the bug. Where i came upon a comedian (which surprisingly was the fifth option, but i didn’t include; there was no click link there for not a real option.) A women by the name of Jessi Klein. She has three stories i heard all of them. I first watched a video titled Dale, then moved on to Breaking up in the Age of Google, and finshed my meal with Tired, From New York. I will be comparing the first and the third mostly because they filled my soul and belly with laughter.
Dale was about, “A woman is reluctant to attend her sister’s wedding in Disney World.” and Tired, From New York was about, “A woman lands what she thinks is her dream job.” They are both incredibly humorous and incredibly cynical. Which makes sense since its coming from the same person. But they both have differences as well. Dale is basically bad mouthing most of her close relatives, in the nicest way possible, for good reason to. Who wants to have an entire disney themed, fairytale, with the disney characters attend anyway? (okay i secretly do but not the point.) She then continues to also talk about the fact that people are basically amazing then realizes no, they are actually such shit! Where is Tired, From New York, bad mouths her self in a way that only your self can. With laughter, and its so awkward and depressing that you laugh hysterically. Although now that I’ve thought about this that actually happens in both stories. She makes fun of her self, and her embarrassing stories. which makes me think of how understanding the human starts with understanding that we are all on some level the same. We all have depressing, awkward, cynicism towards the world and our own lives. And maybe with all these stories that is the point. comedians make us laugh because they get the human way, that is rather small and pointless, seem worth it. through laughter and personal awkward stories. There is differences in the actual store topic but both get down to “raw, human emotion.”
