There are basically two kinds of humor. There's the kind of humor that distracts you. And there's the kind of humor that makes you more aware.
Stand-up is about finding the second kind.
-- Daniel Whitney
“...and a voice said to me, it said, ‘Look around - what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see all colors of people doing everything,’ you know? And the voice said, ‘Do you see any niggers?’ And I said, ‘No.’ And it said ‘You know why? Cause there aren’t any.’” -- Richard Pryor (after returning from Africa)
