Comedy can be, and often is, critical. But when a person pursues a career in comedy, they are also devoting their life to making people laugh, and that's making people feel good, in ways both big and small. The best comedians make us laugh by revealing a truth in a way that is surprising, that makes us see something, in that instant, in a different light. The force, the impact of that truth makes us erupt with joy. With laughter. Comedy is no less than a calling to service, and its impact on our lives is significant.
