Alone Up There

The stand-up comedian is a special breed, both an artist and an artisan. They work by painstakingly developing a persona, scripting and editing an act, and revising it on the spot to suit the energy of a given audience. If the audience does not grasp the countless hours crafting the routine, and the empathic micro-calculations, then the act was a success... well, as long as it was funny.

Wilson was born in 1895 and downed his first drink in his early 20s. For the often-depressed Wilson, imbibing seemed like a cure-all.
