For Comedians, It Definitely Doesn’t Get Better, It Gets Worse
While the decision that DOMA is unconstitutional has made a promise from the “It Gets Better” campaign true, comedians don’t get the benefit of that maxim. Comedians Grant Lyon and Dave Waite have put together a web series of talking heads of several very funny people that you may or may not know, but hopefully do, like Andy Peters, Lachlan Patterson, Jim Hamilton, Ryan Singer, Tony Sam, Heidi Hayward talking about how doing comedy has almost never gotten better (losing jobs, relationships, getting various things thrown at you, being told you’re not funny etc.) except for the fact that they don’t want to do anything else.
Take it as a PSA to not do or do comedy or something where you witness how delusional we all have to be to keep doing comedy, but watch It Gets Worse because it’s pretty great. Also, you can submit your own story of comedy getting worse; details at end of each video.
