Well, I would argue, that your conclusions and thus your editorial is based of a huge selection bias. Surely not every show gets a standing ovation. Indeed, it’s not likely that a disproportionate number of shows get standing ovations.
It could just be, that the ones Daniel Fernandes and Papa CJ tweeted out are the only shows that did get standing ovations. Don’t you think it would be much more interesting to go to say a sample of 30 different stand up specials(maybe the last one towards the end of a comedians run) and then see how many get standing ovations and then draw a conclusion?
