laughter, dark comedy, humor, anecdotal writing
A brief and personal exploration of laughter and dark comedy: what laughter is, what it means, and why it matters, with specific emphasis on the contributions of laughter, humor, and dark comedy to modern society. Personal anecdotes and some short fiction writing alternate roughly with sections of more research-based writing to lend an “easy read” style to the piece.
