There’s always that line I am afraid to cross … “What can I say that won’t hurt anyone’s feelings, but is inappropriate enough to be funny?”
And then you say it and realize, “Oh crap, I crossed the inappropriate line and now I have a reputation of hating blondes with big boobs.”
Here’s what I love about comedy, though. The fact that everything that comes to mind, even the stuff most of us won’t dare say – the guy up on stage will. It’s why I am addicted to watching it. It’s catharsis in full swing for me. It’s like finally letting out the burp at the table that you tried so hard to keep in.
So while, for me, I tend to follow this rule of keeping it locked up in my head because it’s most usually inappropriate… I am so freakin’ jealous of those that don’t give a sh**! There is no stalling process from the brain to the mouth. There is no locked gate with a special code keeping it inside. It flows so smoothly from thought to voice. And dammit, if I had a pair – I would do the same!
Have you been gifted with the ability to let your inappropriate fly?
