Elliott loved jokes!


“Elliott loved jokes! We spent a lot of nights in bars, but a lot of that time in bars was spent telling jokes you were ashamed to laugh at. Elliott would sort of giggle and you knew something terrible was coming. Some terrible joke. He was really excited. The more excited he was, the more terrible the joke… Elliott was fucking hilarious, which is something I think that gets lost in the common recollection of him that is this melancholy character. And he was great at cheering other people up. Even if he was sometimes moping himself, if you were bummed out, he would just switch into “cheer-you-up” mode, and it was just delightful.”
