Columnist Drew Magary wrote in GQ this week, “Why are all the comedy men so awful?” And was immediately deluged with indignant comedy men, averring that they were not defensive. “I am not mad, I am actually laughing.” Questions remain. Is comedy especially bad or just a symptom of society? Did comedians screw up or did we screw up pretending they were sage truth tellers? Is a laugh an endorsement of a higher truth, or the teller’s personal life? And hey, what’s the deal with airline food?
