Believer Mag Interview: Kumail Nanjiani

New interview with one of my favorite standup comedians Kumail Nanjiani. I saw Kumail perform at The Meltdown in 2011 in LA and have been in love ever since. Kumail talks about inspiration, writing and his love of getting constructive criticism. I am a huge fan of comedians and I consider it an interesting form of art. There is a lot control of emotion and timing when handling a live audience and the performance aspect is key to being a great comedian. Read this interview of an up and coming comedian who is in too many TV shows to count (Portlandia, Silicon Valley, Franklin and Bash, ect…).

E-Flux Journal: Disco Parallax

Here is your aesthetics, politics and rhetoric in the same article. Another brilliant examination of shine and process. Please read this, I don’t know what else to say. This article is relevant in many ways and a very interesting intersection of art and politics. E-Flux journal, as always, has put out another thought inspiring piece of language.

Who doesn’t need a good jabbing every once and a while. Let’s all go back to remembering the accomplished artist we all loved to hate.
