“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing” – William Jamestated
I have always found stand-up comedy to be a powerful art form that can better translate the chaos of this world. I have done countless stand-up performances over the years, but these days I do it very sporadically due, in large part, to my PhD research. See my interview with the Montreal Review where I discuss the politics of humour and the most effective styles and approaches.
Below are two past stand-up events. I have not really had time to get hold of the other filmed stand-ups.
Eurovision Standup, for the EU diplomats and guests (Part One)

Stand up at the Newtown Theatre (the early days, 2006)
