Black Nights Comedy
Silliness is abound in this year’s selection of comedy. People dressed up as birds, wars over office equipment, how a single noise can encapsulate the entirety of an experience. Absurd situations that vary from the subtle to the obvious but each of them done with verve and style that will help raise a smile on even the most stony of faces.
But as we laugh at said silliness and revel in the aforementioned absurdity, we also need to see the reality behind it. In a world that can seem chaotic and full of things that are just plain wrong, we’re reminded that one of the most powerful things we can do is laugh. Not because we’re ignoring the seriousness of the world. Not because we’re making fun of those weaker and less fortunate. But because laughing pricks the pomposity of power. It strips away the gravitas of the corrupt systems and corrupt people. Laughing can be a cathartic act of rebellion. It can also be because things can be really, really funny.
So come and rebel your socks off.
