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…).
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.
