In the few short weeks that I’ve been commandeering this site, I’ve focused much of my attention on reviewing movies, because movies have been a major influence on my life. A second huge influence for me is comedy. Whether it be stand-up, improv, podcasts, TV, or movies, quality comedy keeps me going. Let’s just say I’d be in a dark place without my daily dose of laughter.
This brings me, ironically, to a moment of sadness. Earlier today (Feb. 19, 2015), comedian, writer, drummer, producer, and podcast host Harris Wittels died from what sources are saying is an overdose. Wittels was 30 years old.
