Terrified #7: Drew Koshgarian

This week’s guest is Drew Koshgarian.  She’s a great writer and a great friend of Dave’s, and the two delve deep into the fears and worries of an aspiring writer and comedian.  Finding a balance between art and mental health dominates the discussion, but they also touch on feminism, positivity, respect amongst friends, and Alanis Morrissette.

    The bit about who it’s funniest to claim to have killed really had me wondering. Do a little thought experiment with me: which is funnier in all of the following pairings?

    Male comic says it, about his girlfriend… or about a male friend?
    Female comic says it, about her boyfriend… or about a female friend?
    Male comic says it, about his boyfriend… or about a male friend?
    Female comic says it, about her girlfriend… or about a female friend?

    Isn’t killing the romantic partner always going to seem instinctively funnier, regardless of gender, because of the violation of trust that’s involved there? Or am I wrong?

    Of course, gender could still be a factor. (I get that jokes can violate multiple taboos simultaneously, and all.) You could control to test that instead — make the imaginary murder victims the comic’s male and female platonic friends, and so on.

    Fuckin’ love the podcast, btw.
