It's interesting because with a lot of people who I've met in comedy, it seems not to matter what your background is.

Artist Here

The No. 1 quote critics give me is, 'Thom, your work is irrelevant.' Now, that's a fascinating, fascinating comment. Yes, irrelevant to the little subculture, this microculture, of modern art.
