locally laughing

And, by far, the biggest crowd comes for the local comedian. What a medium, comedy...incredible! Its been ages since I saw a stand-up comedian, I was put off by them in general because of their overuse of totally vulgar language. However, humor has the powerful ability to act as a carrier of more serious symbols and issues. The act of laughing together, momentarily grouping together against the big bad 'other', laughing about your place, yourself, your country and your situation.
