It shouldn’t be controversial for me to say that we’ve been in an era of absurdist humor for some time now. I don’t know where this taste for silly & goofy comedy originated, but Gen Z and Millennials can’t get enough of it. I can tell that absurdist humor has swept the nation because of the Netflix show I Think You Should Leave. It is a sketch comedy show starring and created by former SNL writer Tim Robbinson, and it is just as wacky as you could imagine. Ask any Millennial or Gen Zer who their comedic influences are, and so often will you hear I Think You Should Leave as one of their top picks.
I don’t want to give memes too much credit, but I think they played a big part in bringing absurdist comedy to the young. I love that these hilarious memes still live on today. Goofy memes are some of the best out there, and the following memes are no exceptions.
