I wonder if that poses a problem to comedians, or if it brings interesting new perspectives. Anderson can’t resist a metaphor about Radiohead, who he thinks willingly lost some of their fanbase post-OK Computer in their mission to delve more deeply into ideas. He says he’s similarly more eager to examine complexities, despite the fact that comedy works so well in absolutes.
