Definitely agree with Maria Bamford and Patton Oswalt. Perhaps Margaret Cho.
I would like to hear more from "average Joes." I love hearing the stories of these comedians, absolutely, but the average person feels a little more accessible to me. I know famous people "are people too," but they have the added addition of "being known." I'd like to hear from the everyday person and how they cope with illness and how it's touched them.
“Oh, believe, you were not born for nothing! You have not lived, or suffered, for nothing! What was created must perish, and what perished must rise again! Stop trembling! Prepare yourself to live!”
