Cry-Bullies are ruining Comedy

June 30, 2015

It’s one of my dad’s favorite jokes, but the only way to tell it today is to check to see if the coast is clear first. The coast is rarely clear in comedy these days as racial epithets, rape, homosexuality, and everything else funny have become verboten. However, there is hope. While alternative comics have been bitching for years about the end of comedy, especially stand-up comedy, the mainstream is finally clueing in. Almost-billionaire Jerry Seinfeld recently told ESPN that PC is ruining comedy. “I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” he told Colin Cowherd, before adding, “[Students] just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice.’ They don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about.” He later doubled down and told Seth Meyers it’s starting to affect his own, squeaky-clean comedy.
