Gosh, what a terrible academic I am! I spend my time writing about and laughing at the most horrible, scary and depressing things in life, extolling the virtues of joining tragedy and comedy together, and then *POOF* something unbearably tragic happens and I lose all interest in comedy.
Yes, it seems that my Gran’s illness and inevitable death caused an emergency shut down of my funnybone. Not to worry though, her timing was GREAT seeing as I have a show coming up and was short on material – thanks, Gran! This is going to be a challenge, I’m not going to lie. A 40 minute comedy show about tragedy, two months after Granny Zlata shuffled off her mortal coil. With Mum watching. Folks, this is not a show you’re going to want to miss!
