I’ve grown up with a mutual admiration for music and comedy. When I’m not listening to music or playing it, I’m probably watching Comedy Central or reading anything that makes me laugh. Maybe I do it to get my mind off of the harsh realities of everyday life or maybe I just need some mental stimulation. Regardless, I don’t think I’m alone when I declare there’s an unspoken bond between musicians and comedians. In fact, I think deep down every musician wants to be a comedian and vice versa. Aside from being entertainers, there’s layers of similarities between the two that I felt could use some exploration.
