No judgement intended here - my Aunt Dee (who is hip enough to have thorougly enjoyed both World War Z and the Watchmen graphic novel) went out of her way to rave about this guy. And while puppet-based humor isn’t my thing, I would never indict anyone else for enjoying it.
The more interesting question, for me at least, is the one Dunham’s sucess raises about my own taste. I look at the topgrossingstand-ups and wonder, has my time as an effete, liberally-minded New Yorker put me that out of touch with the sensibilities of “the rest of America”? Or is it a demographic issue, and will mainstream stand-up comedy always be, by definition, jokes that appeal to the over-35 crowd? Anyone else find the racist skeleton puppet strangely charismatic?
