And just as it can be for other areas of life, comedy is an effective coping mechanism for addressing frustrations about today's political climate. But Krish Mohan and Andrew Frank aren't interested in liberal or conservative labels for their material. The two stand-up comedians performing Feb. 3 at Nomad's in Fayetteville are more focused on taking a deeper look at cultural systems from a socially conscious viewpoint.
