Driving/On the Road
Stand-up comedians have long-used “car routines” in their acts. George Carlin famously used to describe the person whose blinker was on (for miles and miles) as, possibly, circumnavigating the globe in his/her car. The now-disgraced Bill Cosby, when he was still doing stand-up, did a famous routine about driving a clutch car in San Francisco (that whole set-up dates the routine, doesn’t it?) and getting stuck on a hill (and pulling your emergency brake and waving people on, “Go around, go around . . .).
So, in keeping with that tradition, today’s Suburbo uses the late/great Bill Hicks and his routine about getting caught at a red light. I think it’s all too true (the heart of great comedy, right?).
Thanks for reading.
