Not-so-great poet and excellent Minneapolis-based comedian Chris Knutson and I discuss the heart of comedy, the Zen of surfing, and the inimitable David Lynch, among other things. Originally published on the blog of now defunct tech startup RedCurrent.
Twin Cities comic Chris Knutson likes a challenge, and so he chose the Vegas Lounge in northeast Minneapolis to meet for our interview—which spanned bar bingo, furniture
rearranging and mid-week karaoke of mostly plaintive songs by heart-broke regulars. But fueled by beer and a love of all things comedy, we endured. In fact, this multi-faceted fellow cardigan enthusiast seemed to feel right at home in the chaos of Vegas-y outskirt-dom. We lounged in bemused repose as he discussed personal stories and thoughts on comedy.
