Comedy shows are everywhere. Every corner you look into, there is a show that folks are always getting a kick out of it. According to Alain de Bottom though, they do more than just do some gags. In one of his books titled “Status Anxiety”, he conveys that humorists is not merely to entertain but to convey with impunity messages that in the public would be dangerous and impossible to state directly. Restating it, Bottom is passing on that humorists or comedians are a vital role of society and are able to use sensitive subjects for humor that otherwise you could not say in public.
