Mn...not sure what to refer to here, or in what order. Steve Martin really being skillful after fumbling with the banjo? Penn and Teller explaining the trick and still making you gasp? Or, the interminable Mose Allison version of "You Are My Sunshine" that NEVER releases, after 500 lines of S-L-O-W time. Comedy without laughter is a tease. Musical ability without the impulse to share is isolating for everyone concerned. Building a wall with performance keeps too many people out, as if what we need is more loneliness.I'll be leaving, I guess.
