QuestionI grew up in the country, where somehow even the worst cooks had at least one amazing recipe. It took moving to Philly--and now DC (with plenty of Baltimore in the mix)--to learn that people take jokes about fried chicken or rice or pasta seriously. There is a "certain people eat certain food" vibe in these cities, whereas the sticks seemed more accepting, albeit of fewer options. Is food-segregation something of which you're aware? Do you find it in NYC? If so, is it just an East Coast thing?
I’m not quite sure what you’re asking, but I would never make a “joke” about pasta. There are some things that comedians should just consider “off-limits” in the interest of taste.
*also I live in LA now.
