Tourette’s Syndrome is a laughing matter in LA comic Samuel J. Comroe’s deft mind. While society’s taught not to mock people with such afflictions, Comroe, of course, mines his condition—an array of facial tics, uncontrollable spasms, and verbal outbursts—for the socially verboten humor inherent in it. In the process, he’s turned a negative into a hilarious positive. You can get a solid idea of Comroe’s amiable, energetic approach in his Normal Behavior comedy special, where his material expands beyond Tourette’s into subjects such as relationships, sex, homophobia, dogs, and the benefits of owning a shitty vehicle.
