Revisiting: 14-YEAR-OLD STAND-UP COMEDIAN

A teenage comedian has become immensely popular.

This is a comic in three pages. It looks like it’s been drawn with black ink and felt-tip pen colors on small-sized paper. The art is attractive because it gives an impression of ease (but we would be hard pressed to manage a similar style if we tried). Sometimes it looks childish, sometimes elaborate (the view of the umbrellas, for example).

There are several levels of storytelling at the same time. We’re there in the stadium with the character and at the same time the voice-over takes us away from it with its cold analysis and absurd humor. It feels like an out-of-body experience.

It’s over before you know it but something remains, like a memory kept from real life.

Available in volume 11.
