Flash Fiction: The Stand-Up – by Mark Tulin—LetterPile

A comedian’s fear of the cancel culture.
— Read on The Stand-Up

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. followed the links but couldn’t find it 😦

  2. Great story – even with the sad ending. It’s too bad “society” can’t take a joke. I watch the old-time comedians and think “wow, we used to have thick skin”. They couldn’t take the comedic likes of George Carlin or Richard Pryor anymore, and that’s…SAD! They may have raunchy, but at least they made you LAUGH!
