Comedy is becoming kind of "cool" again, isn't it?
Writer and producer Jessica Pilot and videographer Christian Hendricks have started a new video series for the "Village Voice" called "This Is Stand Up." Each three-minute episode features comedians discussing their personal views on the craft and on the current state of the form.
In this second episode, Pilot talks with "Saturday Night Live" alum and former "Tough Crowd" host Colin Quinn. Quinn talks about the why it's not good for comedy to be the cool thing, his love for Manhattan's legendary Comedy Cellar club, and why being positive on Twitter is the quickest way to attract the trolls.
