There’s a fine line between comedy and tragedy. For centuries, we’ve been entertained by some of the funniest people, who’ve made us laugh, made us feel better about ourselves, and in some cases, taken us back from a brink of something.
But, just because they tell jokes for a living and are always the loudest personality in the room, doesn’t mean that comics aren’t dealing with dark shit. The fact is, the funniest ones have the darkest stories.
This is the dark side of being funny.
