  • 'Blazing Saddles' at 45: The Movie That Couldn't Get Made Today

    PJ Media ^ | 7 Feb 2019 | Stephen Kruiser
    The Hollywood Reporter celebrated the occasion by republishing its original review of Blazing Saddles. Here is an excerpt: The screenplay by Brooks, Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor and Alan Uger (from a story by Bergman) is totally irreverent, never passing up a chance to point up a cliche and sparing nothing or no one along the way. The language is definitely R-rated but it never becomes offensive. In fact, the incongruous pairing of the language and the characters accounts for a great deal of the boisterous humor. Brooks' fast-paced direction is a masterpiece of comedy detail, filled with delightful...
  • ‘Family Guy’ Is Phasing Out Jokes About Gay People, Executive Producers Say

    The executive producers of the animated comedy Family Guy on Fox say they are phasing out jokes about gay people. Mouthy Merc's First Middle Kingdom Move Rich Appel and Alec Sulkin told Deadline’s sister publication TV Line that the long-running show is evolving, although still decidedly politically incorrect. The Seth MacFarlane series features the adventures of the Griffin family of Quahog, R.I.,
  • PETA vs. Tiffany Haddish. Get out the popcorn.

    01/04/2019 11:13:27 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | January 4, 2018 | JAZZ SHAW
    As regular readers likely know, I’m generally a fan of any story that gets PETA up in arms. But in this case, I came to the headline in question needing a lot more information. It involves a report of a protest by a comedian named Tiffany Haddish. Despite the fact that I’m a big fan of standup comedy and watch plenty of comedians’ specials, I’d never heard of her. It turns out she’s been featured quite a bit and appeared in some movies I’d never seen, but I somehow missed her act up until now.This tale doesn’t have anything to...

    I’ve experienced a lot of strange things while performing comedy: Rosario Dawson made fun of me while I was bombing in front of hundreds of Bernie Sanders fans. I once had to tell the crowd mid-show that the venue was closing for an impromptu health inspection. On Nov. 30, I performed stand-up as part of an annual event put on by the Asian-American Alliance at Columbia, and about 20 minutes into the show, my microphone was cut off. It wasn’t because of some fire code violation, or because some violently drunk heckler and I were about to fistfight. It was...
  • Tim Allen: Liberals have little sense of humor about themselves, 'so I love poking at it'

    Tim Allen thinks nothing is more effective at pissing people off than a "very funny conservative." "I like pissing people off, and I said there’s nothing, especially in this area, that pisses people off more than a very funny conservative, a smart, funny conservative that takes shots and is certainly self-effacing," Allen said in an interview with IndieWire about his show "Last Man Standing," in which he plays a conservative-leaning character. "The left-wing point of view is so pervasive that they don’t even realize it’s a point of view. It is just a point of view," he said. "I think...

    Amy Schumer won’t be appearing in any Super Bowl ads this year. Not because she’s just announced she’s pregnant (mazel tov!) but because she wants to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players standing up — or, more accurately, kneeling down — to racism. Though, as the New York Post points out, it’s not entirely clear if the stand-up comedian had been asked to front any commercials. Still, it’s the Insta likes that count and, as Schumer posted on her page: ‘I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got.’ Privilege ass...

    Wanda Syke's jokes fell flat with some of her fans. Over a dozen angry audience members walked out or were kicked out of Sykes' show in New Jersey on Thursday for heckling her when she opened with a series of jokes about President Donald Trump. The liberal comedian began her set at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank by making fun of how the public appears to be aging more quickly from stress during Trump's administration. The Asbury Park Press reported that some attendees began heckling Sykes, complaining that she was being political. "Do some comedy!"...

    Chuck Schumer was visiting a Washington D.C. primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mr Schumer if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'. So Mr Schumer asked the class for an example of a 'Tragedy' A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing' in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.' 'Incorrect,' said Schumer. 'That would be an accident.' <>A little girl...

    A Slovenian comedian who previously impersonated the country’s former prime minister has now been appointed to the position. NBC News reported that Marjan Sarec, a longtime comedian and actor, was appointed as prime minister designate on Friday. His leftist party came second in the country’s parliamentary elections earlier this year, and he was chosen by the Parliament 55 to 31. Sarec, 40, earned fame with his impersonation of former Prime Minister Janez Jansa, who headed the country’s right-wing Slovenian Democratic Party. “We are a new party, [a] new generation in politics that is not burdened with the past," Sarec told...
  • Comedy Threatens Liberalism So Liberals Want To Kill It

    It’s important to laugh at liberals, which is why liberals want to stamp out laughter. Laughter is subversive. Back when comedy was funny, before it got woke, the left used to use it to undermine traditional culture. Now that they have the wheel of the cultural car, they are afraid that people pointing and giggling at their hypocrisy, venality, and stupidity will make them lose control and crash.Hence, comedy must die.Sadly, it’s the comedians themselves who are carrying the wood to pile up around the stake. Now that liberals are firmly in control of the culture, comedy is no longer...

BROWNSVILLE, Texas Jodi Goodwin has spent the past month helping grief-stricken parents with their asylum cases. On most days, the Harlingen, Texas-based immigration lawyer drives to the Port Isabel Detention Center just outside of Brownsville to meet with clients who were separated from their children. But, she says, those mothers and fathers are too devastated to prepare for their court hearings. Instead, they replay the moment their kids were taken away by Border Patrol, worry about their...
