Jason Cook - The Search for Happiness
An hour of pleasant company, although lacking memorable friction
This article is from 2011.
Cook’s latest frenzy of silliness is an exploration of happiness (as defined by Wikipedia), researched thoroughly by the comic and his dear old mum. The problem with a show that openly aims not to please everyone is that there’s no challenge to the material; an hour spent in Cook’s pleasant company offers little with any friction to make it memorable.
