“Someone slipping on a banana peel is funny, but there’s nothing witty about it. Wit involves using language in a clever way to reveal some greater truth. We appreciate both the cleverness and the light that it shines for us.”—Larry Wilmore, quoted in “Soapbox: Jane Krakowski, Larry Wilmore and More on Wit,” WSJ. Magazine, Mar. 21, 2016
Sorry about the cancellation of your Nightly Show, Larry. With luck, you’ll be smiling and displaying your wit again soon in another forum.
