Could Comedy Be the Cure for COVID-19?
Play • 18 min

There has not been an awful lot to laugh about these past few months, and yet, where would we be without the occasional moments of levity about the predicaments of pandemic?

In this episode of the "What Manners Most" podcast, Thomas interviews standup comic and audience warmup man Tom Kelly. A comedian who cut his teeth on shows such as The View and Good Morning America, Kelly reflects on the outlook for a career—and a culture—presently without comedy clubs or studio audiences. What does the future hold for comedians--and for comedy in general, and how will laughter continue to carry us through these unsettling and unprecedented times?
