Viewing Notes

I had completely forgotten this comedian, who would appear regularly on Letterman and other shows. Had I recalled who this was I would’ve watched sooner. Main reason I dipped in tonight was b/c of the controversy surrounding the narrative, which I was unaware of and kept a blind eye towards as to not spoil it. This really is more like a mystery that has the viewer second guessing all the way as to what is real and what isn’t. Now I want to read / hear some critique of this madness.
