Hennessy Youngman - Art Thoughtz

Chuck Klosterman: This is Hennesy Youngman. He is, I suppose, an art critic; if you only watch the first 60 seconds of this clip, you will suspect he is a confused, pretentious goofball. But this is not the case — this is a person who really, really understands what he's talking about, to the point that there is no difference between his jokes and his actual message. Youngman does for art what Nardwuar the Human Serviette did for rock interviewing: He uses an authentic depth of knowledge to explode the fabricated import of what he's supposed to be doing.
