He must have filmed this just before everything got shut down.
Some of us remember 9/11 when one of the tests of how resilient the national psyche was included our ability to tell jokes again. Even jokes about *gasp* that.
There was even a short video made about how we groped our way through that process, called “How The American Comedians Learned To Joke After 9/11”

He’s not saying there IS no danger. He’s just doing what all talented comics do — point out the absurdity and put things in a better context or perspective.

Even better, do what is in our power right now.
