Comedian David Cross on the ‘Boom’ Effect of Comedy, ‘Comedy TV Shows’

Comedian and writer David Cross says the “Boom” effect of comedy shows is creating an “enthusiasm bubble” that has created a “crazy” feeling among viewers, especially younger people.

He says this “bubble” has led to the rise of “self-congratulatory comedy” and the “unwillingness to admit mistakes and take criticism.”

Cross, who is a writer and director on “The Comedy Vehicle,” talks about the importance of being aware of the “bubbles” created by shows, the lack of empathy for viewers, and the need to “do what you love” to survive in the comedy business.

He also says that the “bounce” has created “a lot of “fake” TV shows.
