My old comedy teacher never liked jokes about work.
"No one wants to be reminded about work at a comedy show," he'd say, "They're there to forget about work."
I thought about him last night, when the emcee of the show I was on asked the audience during her opening bit, "Anyone here lose their job? Anyone here think they may lose their job?"
I was afraid she'd follow it up by asking if anyone was recently diagnosed with cancer.
