'Comedy' is the truth

'Comedy' is the truth I would give it a 10 but i want to leave room for the one... I'm Dying up here'' is a blast from the past in so many ways. You don't normally see what is behind it all in this business and what a struggling aspiring artist goes through and this one nailed it on the head!!! I am not shocked at what this profession has to go through and endure, all dignity put aside and pride to hide...it really is a tough road to fame fortune and glory and all that jazz to what a person goes through to achieve it all. When i was watching this my impression was it all seems very realistic down to earth. Unveils secrets and guess what its all good nobody who's made it is complaining 'Comedy' is the truth. Behind all of the madness is the joy of giving and receiving that so called gift of laughter which is a temporary fix like band-aid healing experience that works for everyone. a two way experience receiving the turn around, of your pains into joys and laughter

i love the art. to be able to make those kind of connections with others its a healing mound and wall breaking down of madness a satisfying release of untold personal stories and experiences delivered.. expressed and told so that YOU the audience can feel good about the dysfunction ugly and painful truth.. told by comedians. it is better to laugh than to cry,turn your pains into laughter, this show is exciting! I look forward to more. Kudos you got it spot on.

cheers. Catherine Kiki Love
