A long time ago, George Lucas and his friends changed the world by taking us to a galaxy far, far away. It’s been 40 years since we had ‘A New Hope’ and we all just met our ‘Last Jedi’, with many movies, cartoons, video games and toys in between. Star Wars is a phenomenon that has redefined many facets of culture and media, comedy included. There’s a cottage industry cracking wise about the space fantasy—i.e. our playlist of stand-up inspired by Skywalkers and TIE Fighters. The blockbuster powerhouse has been parroted and parodied more than any other piece of pop culture. These interpretations are routinely critical. Even in tribute, many of the allusions and references about Star Wars speak to plot holes, leaps in logic, and awkward performances. Some see certain installments as abominations against their childhood, or at least against quality entertainment, and call for fictional characters’—and certain creators’—heads on pikes. All of these swipes are from fans. It’s part of what makes the saga so great. Star Wars is a big, silly movie that inspires a sweeping spectrum of emotions: love, rage, hilarity.
