For the time being, or maybe permanently (who knows?), we are retiring the “Stand-up Sunday” (or “Sunday Stand-Up”) feature. All Sunday posts, actually. We will be moving to a twice per week schedule, with posts on Monday and Thursday (with an occasional post at other times, if we feel like it, or have a lot of posts). We will still have discussions of stand-up, I am sure, and we welcome you to contribute (yes, you, you-who-are-reading-this).
As we approach 100k views, we are thankful for your visiting us, especially those of you who are regular readers (we hope you are out there). But we don’t know much about our readers, so please take a minute to fill out these polls:
Thank you for answering. We are very curious about you, our readers, and hope that we are presenting you with writing that you find worth reading and a site that is worth coming back to. We appreciate feedback on the design, content, and direction of the site.
And since this is the final Sunday Stand-Up post for awhile, at least, I will end with some stand-up.
According to our highly scientific poll below, Louis C.K. is the second most interesting/important humorist to study currently.
His special, “Live at the Beacon Theater,” was highly enjoyable. In light of Thanksgiving, I was thinking of his brief discussion of the origin of the word “Indians,” which then segues brilliantly into a discussion of white privilege. Enjoy.
