    Abstract

    Any one worth their comedy salt knows the oft-quoted line attributed to Edmund Kean on his death bed when he coined the immortal line ‘dying is easy, comedy is hard.’ And yes, it is true we all intuitively nod in agreement when this wonderful aphoristic chestnut is rolled out. Like the members of Spinal Tap gawping at Elvis's grave in Graceland, it puts ‘too much perspective’ on the whole question of what the hell is comedy? Someone who might have another insight into this often mysterious world is aspiring and professional stand-up comedian Jay Handley.
