Humor Needs Horror Or It Isn’t Interesting

The title of this blog post is no joke.  Can you remember ever laughing at something cute, sweet and charming that was genuinely interesting?

Well, maybe you can.  If so, it was the exception and not the rule.

David Rakoff and Dave Hill understood that well.  Their chemistry was perfect, partly because they got it.

R.I.P. David Rakoff.

Dave Hill, you have continued to make us laugh.  You’ll never duplicate the work you did with Mr. Rakoff, but that’s okay.  You’re an original, too.
