The last time he was in town, comedian Joe Zimmerman was fascinated with self-help books. “I did a lot of jokes about it, got a book proposal of my own out of it, and now I’m all fixed up.” Onward and upward then. “I would say I’ve branched out a little back into history stuff and science-type topics, and then also stuff going on right now that I find interesting like the royal wedding and National Geographic admitting to years of racism.” Zimmerman was shocked by how many people watched the former. “Do I care about this? And I started think about it and heard people deliberating, ‘Oh, is she just wanting to be a princess or does she really love him?’ I don’t know why we should care. I could probably love somebody if I could be princess.” Zimmerman was actually at the same school as Prince William back in the day. “I studied abroad at St. Andrews for a semester,” he reports. “There would always be sightings. ‘Prince William is at the quad, we should check it out!’ But I never had any interest. I don’t know what you’re supposed to do, just stare at the prince?” 18+.
