“I have no problem if someone says ‘I don’t think you’re funny.’ I do have a problem when someone says, ‘You’re not funny.’” ~Comedian Mike Toomey

“Are colleges too politically correct for comedy?” was the overhyped bird flu/shark attack/Ebola of the news recently. Having had a less-than-stellar experience performing comedy at a college, I wrote a piece about the idea. I discussed my university show gone awry, and it got a decent little amount of attention. Right place, right time.
If you ever have a comedy show at a college, you better be prepared to walk on eggshells. Sensitivity levels are off the charts, and it’s getting worse.
Last year I put 40,000 miles on my car. This makes me especially touchy when it comes to shitty drivers, a description that can encompass a wide-range of people.
Sometimes I feel like Crash Davis.
