Comedy and cannabis are a match made in heaven. They’re so good together, you actually have to wonder, which came first? The origins of comedy as performance art are documented well in Ancient Greece, where, like in our modern day, comedy was used for both entertainment and political satire. While there’s a bit of debate on what exactly is the oldest recorded joke, we know the recorded history of cannabis on Earth goes back quite a while further.
Is it reasonable to assume that without cannabis, we wouldn’t have comedians? Perhaps not, because plenty of comics have never consumed. But these guys have, and we’re better off for it. Whether using it as a comedic prop or as the subject of political discourse, you’ll laugh out loud as these five comedians explore the radical connection we have with pot.
