Standup comedy, the experience (Cagliari, May 6, 2022)

 "Comedy's the most narcissistic thing in the world. Thinking a room full of people should be looking directly at you, you're the only one who has an amplified voice, and they all just shut up, it's so narcissistic. These people who feel isolated or abandoned, they see that as an opportunity for everybody to listen to them. But you have to have something worth listening to." [Drew Harmon, comedian and former TV weatherman, in An SF comedian on why the Joker is a total stand-up hack Dan Gentile (Oct. 6, 2019)]
