popular standup comedian bo burnham:
entertainment is largely a fluffy, saccharine distraction from the ongoing horrors of the real world, spun from narcissism and comforting lies. people like me seek the obsessive false love of our fans by writing repetitive, danceable songs or telling stories about the funny thing that happened at the store, and neither the audience nor the entertainer is ever made to confront why they need the soothing anesthetic of pop culture to cope with their deep wells of despair.
