    I’m offended by the way Jonathan Pie is shouting at me. I mean, he’s looking at me and now I’m offended and you should be offended too.

    Nah sorry Tom, usually I agree with your rants but Louis CK is a terrible comic and a cunt. You can take this everything's fair game for comedy logic too far.

    The problem these modern, netflix special-having comedians have is a large majority of their sets aren't jokes, i've watched a bunch of them where they just spout off about how "orange man bad and has small hands" and "men are evil" and "muh wage gap". They're voicing their opinions and are no longer looking for laughs but the "WOOOOOOOOO" and the round of applause from their audience and they're holding other, actual comedians to the same standard. They assume all comedians are spouting their opinions while on stage because it's what they do.

    I am kinda split ... offensive comedy for me is not directly the problem. It is the intention behind it.. for lack of a better term. A white person at the Apollo talking about his lazy black friend is something completely different then someone dressed as a clansmen in Alabama in front of a 'only whites allowed' crowed talking about his lazy black 'friend'... is something completely different. Then one is telling a joke, the other is spewing hate. But the line is the same.. The problem arises when we are unsure of the intention of the person speaking the line.
    Further people have no problems supporting quite offensive jokes as long as they are not the target of said jokes. Or for that matter any taboo people have.. and everyone does have one.
    Also there are also those that seek issues and to be offended for any reason.

    And now back to a Bernard Manning joke.. that no matter how crude was sen and accepted by all as a joke.. it's a work place / housing place joke.. no one is offended.. except for those who decide to be offended on behalf.. and therefore miss the history, the banter in the communities

  • Oh my god it is Spider

    seeing like 90% of the people I follow on twitter retweet skull-shaun saying "rest in peace, louis ck, who is dead" was absolutely not surprising at all.
    I'm an anarchist. it should be really obvious on the off chance anyone has ever seen me say anything. louis ck has always been a great standup comedian. did nobody remember that time he joked about going back in time to rape hitler into a 69 to feel hitler's mustache on his balls?
    gone are the days the lefties celebrate bill hicks saying that hitler had the right idea but didn't go nearly far enough. well, gone for most folks. I'm still right there and god damn it, those days will return. this exact shit happened in the 60s. then carlin came along. we need another one of those.

    I usually like Jonathan's comedy, but he's just wrong here. The problem with Louis CK's routine is that he wasn't talking about the general apathy of mass shootings. He was questioning what right the survivors of the Parkland shooting had to testify in front of congress and to advocate for stronger gun control laws. Louis was making fun the weak fighting the powerful for what's right. In comedy, that's gutless and punching down. Real comedians challenge the establishment. Louis CK was being a coward and will be irrelevant in comedy as Dennis Miller.

      James Simon Good God, could you just fuck right off with this prescriptive nonsense.
      ‘Comedy SHOULD be this.....SHOULD be that.....’
      Comedy is formless. Boundary less. You don’t challenge the establishment, the status quo by cow towing to whatever the zeitgeist deems ‘acceptable’.
      Get your fucking head out of your arse.

      James Simon OJ fuck off.
      There’s paedophilic jokes that get a laugh... can you get any worse than that?
      Comedy can be anything. If it gets a laugh it’s comedy.
      Comedy is NOT some sort of political statement to take on the government or those in power.
      Granted, it’s harder to get a laugh picking on the weak but if you can pull it off then you done the job.
      Anyone is fair game.

    The words "woke"" and "comedy" do not belong in the same sentence. Woke comedy is gloomy, stale, boring and just so unfunny. And it is true what this character is saying about woke comedy: it is the Establishment telling us what we are allowed to laugh at and censoring humour. It is comedy that has been approved by committees of effete middle-class PC puritans: it is state-controlled jokes; it is the tragic end product of a comedy based on propaganda, intolerance and a morbid fear of causing offence

    Problem with Louie, he presented himself as thoughtful liberal humanitarian, woke! So when he said fucked up shit I laughed with him. I listened to that set, but Louie didn't have the same magic for me I just didn't feel that set. Louie can come back. But maybe he should sell himself as a middle aged pervert

    It's funny all the people who rail against people having a problem with jokes say it's an attack against freedom of speech even though the people who have a problem with the jokes are exercising their freedom of speech. That's how freedom of speech works: you can say what you want but literally everyone else is allowed to disagree with you.

    I guess theres parts to blame on the companies aswell to listening to woke people. I do think they are somewhat innodcent tho as they are simply going for the numbers and the money when they rewrite, direct and sells stuff.. its just bad that it have gotten so out of hand that it acturally felt beneficial for companies to go that route.. : / i hope it turns, for the sake of my own nostalgia.

    He is right in many ways. But also we we can't think our free speech is being taken away if people say you aren't funny, or they say your joke is tasteless, or they hate it. If you're allowed to say it, they're allowed to say something back. That's how it works. Then you can decide whether to care or not. That in itself is ok. Bigger censorship than that is wrong sure, but if I think Louis CK's joke was dumb I'm not hurting his free speech.
