Grassroots Humor

Implications - The comedy industry spends copious amounts of money each year trying to garner the attention of highly critical consumers both on and offline, but a desire for something less formalized and more grassroots is bringing about a genuine preference for low budget comedic endeavours. Charmed by the quirk of shoddy scenery and poor acting, consumers are consistently becoming disillusioned by Hollywood-centric blockbusters and would prefer seeing actors go for coffee or the struggling comedian perform for fans on Chatroulette.
