I haven’t had much experience with satire, since I’ve only just been told what it actually is, but I’ve had to deal with humor, from watching SNL every weekend with my dad, and my dad just being his dumb funny self all the time. The humor I enjoy the most is dark humor, a good example of this is from Anthony Jeselnick’s Netflix special Thoughts and Prayers. That special is probably my favorite comedy specials, next to both of Bo Burnham’s specials. So overall my type of comedy is dark comedy or just really dumb humor.
As of now I know nothing about Mark Twain except for what I’ve heard about in class, but after doing some research I think its pretty interesting that as a baby twain was not expected to live, and if he died, then this entry would have been a lot different.
