Where Comedy Works

"New York is baffling in that it's a city that prides itself on being an absolute shithole. It's like—there's nothing good here, and people are proud of that, they're happy, 'Oh, it's overpriced, and it's overpopulated, and it stinks like piss, and comics!—comics film specials here!' And they all open with a joke about, 'Yeah, you spend eight thousand dollars a month for nine square feet!' And you go, 'Well, why do you fucking live here?' Why do people stay here? But unfortunately, this is where comedy works—where people are the most miserable."
