Those of us who have started with this theatrical training always need that quota of the public, because when we do television, although you have some massive impact through the screens, it will never compare or come close to what it means
have the audience in front and feel that applause, feel that laughter and know that you are in direct communication. That is a value that is not found anywhere.
At some point there was controversy over the black humor that is handled in this type of shows or in stands up comedy. Sometimes a few comments clash with a certain audience. How to handle it?
I think it has to do with several things.
The mood will always be the same be it classic humor, the lightest, the darkest or the most acid, humor is humor. I think that people have to learn to understand that it is not about trampling on anyone’s sensitivity or honor, but simply laugh at reality True, there is a group of people who are much more sensitive, less tolerant of humor and you also have to understand them. We must learn to accept that there is diversity in everything, but that does not mean that certain content should be prohibited to someone because we would be entering a social “dictatorship” and what makes our country beautiful is that we live in a democracy, what you do not like is not you see it, but do not limit the possibility of having fun to others.
But are there situations where the artist should make mea culpa and accept that he exceeded something?
We must understand that, since we do not all have the same ability to resist or sustain a joke, we must also be able to say “sorry, I was wrong or sorry if I offend someone”. I think it’s important
recognize that limits exist and if you exceed, then you exceed and I apologize. What is the problem? No one can be sentenced for a mistake or for a slip that anyone can have.
But in the end those mistakes become controversy and debate, and they are on the agenda…
Yes, imagine, there are real things that I think are more important. In other words, more important than a joke that someone does not like is worrying about how they are trampling us from the State, more important is knowing that politics in this country works through tips and corruption, more important is how they are running us over politically or that there is a rapist on the loose because the Judiciary is useless, that is important. A joke is not important to waste time, we should focus on things that are truly important.
Another controversy is that some parents take their minor children to these shows and where at some point they talk about issues such as racism or sexuality. Should there be any limitation for their entry?
Do you think that the children of today, with the platform that we have and the media that we manage… Are they not informed of anything?
I’m sure they know more things than their parents. So, when a father or a mother is with a boy or a girl anywhere and they hear a phrase or there is a situation that could be for adults, they must explain it to them. Before telling them, don’t listen, don’t look, they should explain to them what it means. Not because you don’t talk to them about sex, sex will disappear. I am sure that there are things that the boys will end up explaining to their parents, who are perhaps more conservative. About the event
