Why is stand up comedy popular at the moment?

Stand up comedy. Is a gift. It's a gift to the world that has a lot of hurt. It's ALWAYS popular. It started out as storytelling. It went into Vaudeville (pre-radio, pre-movie, pre-television entertainment). Now, if you can find a comedian or humourist that defies the common trend and does not swear or lean on rude or blue elements, then you really have comedy. That takes work. Shock and schlock humour - not that funny! Not that hard to do. You have to be smart with words and timing and anthropological knowledge to make strangers laugh - when you want them to! God bless comedians and comedy writers and actors. We need them.
