A term coined by Hanley to characterize her mother Amy; the worlds first sit down comedian. Essentially, a sit down comedian is a true talent, pound for pound, whose beauty, witticisms and jocularity outweighs their body mass.

Comedy can be compared to that of bacteria. Its misuse and overuse leads to a significant loss in its effectiveness. A Newer, stronger strain must evolve over time in order for it to live on. For that reason, it’s inevitable a mutation of some kind will arise for it to become more resilient. In this case the ‘supersatire’ was sit down. Which proved to be highly infectious. :P
The idea was born when Amy was faced with the challenge of performing whilst standing. The performer saw no choice but to replace the comical aspect of stand up with sit down comic theatre, Putting a new happy fat face on comedy.
