Cohort Retort – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
After last week’s Happy Hour set off a great deal of discussion in the comedy community, improv comedian Casey Haeg drops by to set the record straight.
It’s not an easy task speaking out against people who are well known, clever, funny, and charismatic but Casey displays plenty of the same qualities along with the poise and equanimity required to get her point across. It would be nice to walk away from Happy Hour with the problems of the world solved – like we normally do – but it seems like this NOLA comedy world issue has a ways to go before its resolved.
Bart Everson also tried to change the world. Bart believed that his naked body, if viewed by the right cohort of people at the right time, could cause a political revolution. As you are probably aware, the revolution never happened, but Bart’s life doesn’t seem to have gotten much quieter, and the makeup of his cohort doesn’t seem to have changed all that much either.
