As the debate among comedians rages on over whether sensitivity and political correctness are hurting stand-up comedy, Gary Gulman says the real people who are getting too sensitive are comedians themselves.
“Audiences may be sensitive, but no one is more sensitive than a comedian,” Gulman said in an interview with TheWrap. “I spend my day overreacting to petty injustices, and my evenings railing — outraged — to strangers for a loss, most nights, a financial loss. I make less money than I spend on Uber and Lyft every night to share my anger with the audiences.”
Gulman weighed in on the topic as he’s promoting his new HBO stand-up special “The Great Depresh,” in which he reveals that for his entire life he found himself unable to speak his mind when it came to admitting he was struggling with severe depression.
