The only reason Keir Hansen really wants the ability to time travel is to be able to get to all the content the geek community creates in a single day. A web dork and hack pixel-pusher by day, all spare hours are devoted to absorbing film and television, reading and writing sci-fi, a smattering of gaming, unlicensed attempts at mixology, culinary adventures, and novice cat wrangling.
He was once accused of being a "Jack of all trades", but that sounded too much like actual work, and the accuser has since been sacked. His particular passions include Whovianism (classic and new), the complete works of Douglas Adams, and anyone who offers a free sample of wine and/or chocolate, even when unmarked white vans are involved. (It's okay. He can run really quickly.)

Ep. 50: Living On Laughter

Facebooktwitterredditmail

When the world around you feels like a burning trashbag, there are many — many — of us who seek the temporary refuge of laughter. We rely on comedy and humor to brighten our days, distract our conscious minds, perhaps bond with others, and even release some valuable endorphins into our systems that help with the mental and physical healing processes. (It’s true!) Knowing this, the role of the comedian, the humorist, the satirist, is that much more important to our society. But is this a viable occupation in that society? How does one actually make the decision to bring laughter to others as a profession, and then seek out and test the medium in which to explore it? From the comedy stage, to the pages and sites of humor and satire magazines, to the writer’s rooms of television, film, and online studios, there are thousands among us who not only enjoy the good joke, but enjoy its creation. Joined by stand-up comedian and writer Riley Silverman, we look at what is means to make a career out of comedy, and how one can retain their sanity in the pursuit. (…Maybe.)
