You haven't got much choice B, liking or not liking, we are this movie whether we like it or not.

Are we, to some extent,agents of change? If not, is is good if we have faith that we are agents of change?

In other words, I still like your thesis unless it's got fatalistic attitude.

Perhaps it was the title that attracted you here.

MM was funny for a about 1 hour in 2007ish
But his routine was limited to one performance, and then he entered the world of TV presenter.
Ending his career as a stand-up
Stand-up needs continual writing and thinking. It's hard work, and the shtick has to evolve.
Bill Bailey's stand up gets better every year.
Ross Nobel will split your sides painfully in concert, but you wonder why any of this stuff is actually funny - this can make it funnier - like why the F am I laughing?
