Aaron Orlovitz: “I was a philosophy major until I dropped out and started squatting,” he says. Indeed, he is a smart guy who deeply understands philosophy, a theme that weaves in and out of his material. “A lot of philosophers try to define humor. Aristotle talked about it—how humor has to be relatable, how it needs to be ridiculous and all of these different things. Personally, I’m not sure that humor is a thing that even has a philosophy. I think that humor is a way to express philosophy. I think that you can use comedy and humor to make a point about something, about the way the world is, about the way your reality is, about even weird shit like how we know the things we know,” he says.”
