A piece by Quartzy outlines how a new wave of comedians are apparently not interested in … ya know … actual comedy.

Not that we would accuse many of today’s comedians of being funny when they are actually attempting to be.

See Michelle Wolf.

Why would any comedian want to be associated with a narrative that runs completely counter to their business model?

For their own sake, they better trust that Seinfeld’s axiom proves true.

Much of it is due to Trump derangement syndrome. It’s difficult to want to smile or laugh when you loathe an individual as much as many of them do Trump.

Another contributor is the fact that Trump is himself very funny, which leaves comedians with little material.
