Farts and philosophy

Christina Pazsitzky, comedian and philosophy major, talks about her approach. These days it seems that a significant number of philosophers have long-since traded in TRUTH for self-aggrandizing activism posing as inquiry and so now, more than ever, the health of liberal culture depends on the Shakespearean fool pricking the elites, the common clay, and everything in-between — some of my favorites include Groucho Marx, Peter Cook, George Carlin, Andy Kaufman, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Graham Chapman, Gilbert Gottfried,  Rob Brydon, Adam Carolla, Joe Rogan, Steven Crowder, John Valby and a few others. Kaufman, to my mind, was the original and most masterful troll of them all.

Pazsitzky loves comics who are truth-tellers — their act is their life rather than a studied, affected performance.
