I think comedy is as vital and valid an art form as any other way of being creative that has existed. I also think comedy is vital in this fight for justice. Comedy is the most powerful tool kit I know of for bringing relief, giving voice to discomfort, revealing the good and bad we must see to move forward and for bringing people together into community. I’ve been arguing/advocating for comedy to be up high in that bucket of “Art” for most of my adult life. Now I’m doing it for civic practice, movement building and justice work.
Why did the chicken block the road?
To disrupt business as usual in the fight for justice.
