    “There is a comedian, black woman, from Chicago, whom I met through a former girlfriend, who made a major impact on my life not only because she was funny but because she was brazenly honest. She spoke openly about hosting successful comedy shows, eating at fancy restaurants, and signing autographs of the rich, only to return home to a somewhat dilapidated apartment accompanied with unpaid bills. 'The Comedian' hinges on an aspect of human identity where performance and audience are merging forces: one aims to be pure, the other aims to be inspired.” - Nathaniel Mary Quinn
