Stand-up comedy for personal development

Great comedian Omid Djalili recently said this, in answer to the question:

Q. What brings you back to stand-up after three and a half years away?

It was the love of it, surely -and the opportunity to evolve as a human being. I really believe that if you tak comedy seriously, in a holistic way, soyou work on yourself; it’s the one art form where you can transform actuallhy as a human being, and I felt I needed to do that.”
