dot dot dot No derogatory quotation marks intended. I was being critical of the term, not Ze Frank.

As a fascinated former watcher of zefrank's daily show, I certainly hope those quote marks weren't meant to be as derogatory as they appeared. Check out zefrank's TED speech, if you need a good introduction to his multifacetednessitude that stretches way beyond the overly lumpen label of "humorist".

J -- I haven't seen Ze Frank on stage, but I'll seek him out on your recommendation. And if you start blogging about Ze Frank, I'll totally read it addictively every week. Surely he uses some complicated symbology and literary references to decode?

Have you seen Ze Frank on stage? It's humoristastic.

I always thought "Humorist" was actually a vaguely insulting title, implying someone who is too funny to be considered a serious writer, but not funny enough to be a comedian.
