My brother Patrick is one of the funniest people I know.
His humor is very dry and never obvious – always displaying a level of complexity and strangeness to it that makes it continually rewarding. He’s part of an improv comedy troupe that performs during the summer, and he’s a writer for a satirical college newsletter called the Tommy Basement Times.
Recently, Patrick put together an entire issue of the Times, and was kind enough to email a copy of it to me. Here’s a note he sent along with:
i’m glad you appreciate the articles though. a lot of my humor is doing things despite or without recognition and appreciation, but it’s nice to know that you enjoy it.
My favorite article is piece on cats on the front page – I’ve been giggling to myself about it for the last 24 hours.
