By far and large, the coronavirus pandemic has managed to change the face of the world more than we thought possible. With business operations closing down, people losing their jobs, and being forced into isolation for months on end, no one has had it easy in 2020.

Shifting to remote learning methodologies was one of the challenges that came with the pandemic, with parents struggling to ensure that their children could continue to receive a proper education.

Max’s comedic streak isn’t just for the benefit of his fans. While most parents aim for distraction-free learning spaces for their children, Max and his daughter have claimed the class clown title during the lockdown.
