A report from under my rock . . .

Sometimes I see things or hear things that and I wonder, Where have I been?  (Hence the title of this post.) I had one of those moments earlier this evening.  I was driving by an old theater turned events location & was puzzled by what I read on the marquis:

Ethiopian Comedy Show (never mind that they misspelled it). I never knew there was such a thing.  When I got to the computer tonight, I Googled “Ethiopian Comedy” and it turns out there are lots and lots of YouTube videos of Ethiopian comedy.  I clicked on one or two to see what I’ve been missing, but they’re not in English, at least not the ones I clicked on.  So I’m still out of the loop.  I don’t know of any Ethiopian community around here, either. 

I guess it shouldn’t seem so odd or out-of-place, it’s just that Ethiopian Comedy is so specific.  It’s not “Open Mic Comedy Night” or “Stand-up Comedy Here.”  It’s Ethiopian Comedy.  What’s so funny about that?
