The loss of CEW was fucking hard. I saw him with @rosepetalpistol at a place on the east side days before he passed away, his wife and beautiful daughter were there and we talked for 40 minutes about life, the show, and him. It was a huge blow to the show, he was the funniest person on it. So he's irreplaceable and I think that everyone felt that, and I felt worst for the writers and editors, seeing him over and over, writing him out of the show, the whole lot of it. But in the most disgusting and at the same time beautiful way, "the show must go on."
I think that saying means something bigger than most people think. The show is the most important thing in many ways, because it is for the whole, for the masses, for the audience-- they must be entertained and distracted, best of all made to laugh and feel happy for the ticket price. One person's death is a tragedy, to be sure, but the show must continue for the hundreds of thousands of millions who must see a show because tragedy is coming their way. Tragedy is on it's way or already there for all of us who's uncle is dying, who just lost their beloved pet, their own death approaching one day, or affecting everything they do. All we do is motivated by using time the right way, not wasting time, because we have a finite amount of it. But it continues even without us. This is why Time is God, which I'll explain later.
But regardless, the show must go on.

A dude tried to punch me in the face on stage at the Atlanta Punchline after his heckling wife told the audience their infant son died six months earlier. Long story short. But it was pretty overwhelming. I got a standing ovation because of how I handled it, which still made me so sad I considered quitting comedy and parked outside a strip club I was too depressed to go into. wow. that's depressed.

Absolutely. Weirder still was that my brain, slowly bleeding from a minor hemorrhage caused by an AVM (different from an AMA) was causing me to go insane, so that added to the madness. You truly don't even question your sanity when you are losing it. It's such a bizarre thing....
