The last lines are so raw and powerful. Comedy can be cruel.


Wow Julie!Comedy sometimes is very cruel indeed.

Andy Sewina

Yeah, I don't think comedy is cruel, what you're describing is abuse. Comedy is funny, and clever and makes you laugh. These so called comedians are just sad bullies and they'll get their comeupannce sooner or later, I hope! The worrying thing in all this is that some people in their audiances might start to think it's okay to abuse people who are different.

Julie, so much truth in your poem. I studied stand up and did it very briefly and my coach/instructor was clear, humor at the expense of the innocent isn't well earned and it isn't funny, either. This is a powerful poem and I'm grateful that you shared it with us.
