A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement. – Jimmy Carter
Common worth a pound,
Funnel toothpaste out of tubes,
Cipher zot abound.
The thing is to be brave and move the audience with you, instead of cater to the lowest common denominator, you know, slipping on a banana peel and falling on your ass. You got to move the audience a little further ahead in terms of their appreciation of what is comedy. It’s complicated. – Mel Brooks
