In the face of immediate public loss and public mourning, how does a society know when it’s okay to return to normal interactions? And especially if you’re a professional comedian, how do you know when it’s no longer “Too Soon”? I was happy to be talking with Nick Scown, the director of Too Soon: Comedy After 9/11, a film about the aftermath of 9/11, and its impact on comedy and professional jokesters. Also joining Nick in the conversation are two comedians featured in the film, Maz Jobrani and Ahmed Ahmed.
