Parkinson's disease (PD also known as idiopathic or primary parkinsonism, hypokinetic rigid syndrome/HRS, or paralysis agitans) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease result from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, a region of the midbrain; the cause of this cell death is unknown. Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, thinking and behavioral problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease, whereas depression is the most common psychiatric symptom. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep and emotional problems. Parkinson's disease is more common in older people, with most cases occurring after the age of 50.

It's a horrible attempt to be funny.

I don't know the guy's intention

but there are meds that list 'thoughts of suicide' as a side effect.

Was it? I didn't read it that way. Just because he's a comedian doesn't mean he's always trying to be funny.

I didn't read it as him trying to be funny, I read it as him dusting off the old Jump to Conclusions map.

Well I read it as more inappropriate than anything. I'd be using the term comedian for someone like him very loosely.
