I disagree with all the Facebook comedians claiming that comedy is dying. Comedy is not dying; it’s the best it’s ever been–it’s just changing.
The idiots who go to college and become politically correct and humorless are losing. The social justice warriors who cancel people they don’t know for jokes they don’t understand are dying. This brand of people is disappearing. Because the triggered represents a minority of the populace.
Honestly, they have the right to be upset at the art that comedians produce. They can claim it’s harmful and choose not to watch it, but they crossed the line when they tried and successfully ruined several careers with their authoritarian campaigns to force group-think over what they subjectively find funny.
But this schtick was dying before it began because these people don’t understand how to think. The concepts about nuance and context went over their heads. And they missed out on a whole world of comedy that grew outside their mainstream.
If you don’t allow certain content or voices to be heard–those voices will find a way to exist. People are going to say what they want to say no matter how much you try to stop them. Those comedians they canceled for making a joke in a comedy club, well, guess what, there are thousands more ready to take you on–and they will.
And as much as I dislike the social justice people, I can’t stand the self-proclaimed victims on my side that claim that comedy is dead. Comedy is alive and well, and we should thank cancel culture for this. Because they provided us with a supply of new politically incorrect comedians like Andrew Schulz, Mark Normand, Tim Dillion, Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Annie Lederman, Bert Kreischer, Tom Segura, Christina Pazsitzky, and more.
Podcasts like “The Joe Rogan Experience,” “Your Mom’s House,” and “Flagrant 2” are also more popular because of social justice warriors.
The political correctness of the 1990s brought us “South Park,” the most offensive show ever put on television. And the political correctness of today is giving us some of the most politically incorrect comedy we have ever seen.
Just watch “Flagrant 2” with Andrew Schulz and Akaash Singh; every episode is filled with ridiculous takes and offensive comedy just for the sake of being inappropriate. The diverse hosts and producers of the show provides a sense of open discussion that is not seen on most podcasts. And it works well behind the blatant fragrancy the show is based on. This allows listeners to understand that everyone in the room is just making jokes and there is no need to take the show seriously.
You can try to cancel and be politically correct, but it will never work. Because if something is funny: it’s funny, and millions of people will enjoy it.
You are not fighting bigotry; offensive comedy will always exist no matter what. People will always find outrageous and offensive funny. Because everything can be funny–death, race, gender, and every difficult topic can be humorous. It’s all about the context of the flagrant content, and people of all backgrounds understand that. There are no limits towards comedy, and boundaries will continue to be pushed no matter how much these bitch’s cry.
So, thank you, social justice warriors. Continue to protest and try to cancel, because soon you might cancel the wrong person, and then the world will become more shameless as they tell jokes to millions of people.
