When I went and saw comedian Adam Hill’s brilliant show ‘Happyism’ at the Enmore Theatre, Adam shared a story about being in the presence of the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama was addressing a group of leading comedy performers and said ‘I don’t know comedy, but I do know this; you have a microphone – use it to say something’.

Hang on….They gave the Dalai Lama a microphone and what did he use it to say?: ‘I don’t know comedy’.  What sort of example is that?

If those leading comedy performers followed his example and used the microphone to say ‘I don’t know comedy’ and this was emulated by protege comedians all the way through to beginner comedians it could set up an anti-comedy pyramid scheme.

And if all comedians began by saying ‘I don’t know comedy’ it could set audience expectations very low (implementing the third noble truth of Buddhism), maximising the chance of audience pleasure at the subsequent performances.

Well played, Dalai Lama!

 

Have you heard the one about the reincarnation of anti-comedy?

Comedy Conversations

May 22, 2016

Imagine having conversations with famous people.  By imagining conversations that I have had with famous people, it saves me airfares, stalking convictions, and séance fees. I start with something that a famous person has allegedly really said, imagine that he/she said it to me and imagine the next few lines of conversation…   Andy Warhol Andy: […]
