The multi-talented, very funny and passionately neurotic Gianmarco Soresi explores ANGER in stand-up. All three half-Jewish white fellas share temper problems and a love of comedians who use anger to get to the funny. We talk tantrums, yelling, when anger goes wrong, and why impotent rage is so damn funny. How do you make things ok so people can laugh while you’re expressing genuine anger? What elements soften anger, taking the fangs out so people don’t feel threatened while a comedian is screaming at them? We laugh and analyze through bits by four VERY different comedic anger styles: Bill Burr, Sam Kinison, John Mulaney, and Mary Mack. All this and a lot more in this very funny, engaging episode.
ABOUT THE GUEST COMIC
