His take on comedy is to make sure that it’s not only funny but also therapeutic to his audience. Also, that it’s brings people together in harmony and unison.
In a highlight on him for medium, he states, “laughter has been proven to improve health and a lot of times comedy is taking real life problems and finding light in the situation; so yes I believe it is therapy and a unifier.”
