It was bemusing to learn it was, Humour's Bad Reputation. The Role Comedy Plays in Both Social Bonding and Emotional Coping. In the period where the warm and friendly Jeffrey and I were discussing the prospect of my being a guest, it was clear he was most interested in the negative side of comedy. Which really isn't something I've had to ponder much in the past... as I see soooo many positives. I was rather surprised at the angle he was focused upon. In the end, I just said, if he's really up-for-it, bring whatever he wants and I'll respond, dismantle and joust as best as I can. Jeffrey said yes, and this is the result. I've never had to handle an interview like this one before. I hope you like it.
