Beautiful quote about art at 46:00 if anyone else is looking for it (Mike is attributing it to Daniil Kharms).

Nikki Glaser is amazing, and the Cosby joke totally works.

Jimmy Carr co-wrote a book about jokes and has said "Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog- few people are interested, and the frog dies." If you're one of us who is interested as to how the frog dies, this is a good podcast for you. If you're interested in comedy for more than just laughs, then listen. I can't explain it better, but these comedians can.
