    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...

    Separated Parents Are Failing Asylum Screenings Because They’re So Heartbroken Immigration lawyers say separated parents are too grief-stricken to focus on their cases. 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...

    Comedian Tracey Ullman: Woke Will Eat Itself (HotAir) Alternate title: A Typical Day on Twitter. The video is a few days old, but it’s so good as a palate cleanser that it simply can’t be missed. Comedian Tracey Ullman has enough standing as an entertainer and a cultural satirist to get away with this send-up of millennials and “wokeness” — I think, anyway. If she doesn’t, no one does, and it’s funny enough to test out the theory (Not Safe for Work language):

    In an honest, impromptu homily delivered Monday, Pope Francis admitted he is just making most of his theology up as he goes, ignoring thousands of years of official Church doctrine in favor of “whatever pops into my head at the time.”Where past Popes have been careful in their attempts to stay in line with official Catholic teaching, Pope Francis confessed he doesn’t really know much official doctrine, stating that he’s more of a “shoot from the hip kind of guy” when it comes to weighty topics of morality, salvation, God, and eternity.“People ask me questions, and I’m not always sure...

    Comedians are becoming increasingly reluctant to perform on college campuses due to a sensitive culture of political correctness, and college bookers don't seem to mind. According to VICE News report published last week, several successful comedians, including Judy Gold, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock, now avoid going to college campuses because their jokes can be deemed offensive. “Why is it that everyone has to adjust to everyone else? Don’t hire me if you don’t want to hear what I have to say,” Gold told the publication. When asked to explain how she would react if her jokes offended an audience...
  • TV's imported comedians often stumble while trying to 'fix' America (Samantha Bee, etc.)

    In theory, the foreign-born comedians on America's late-night comedy and satire shows are supposed to provide a fresh, outsider’s perspective on the news in their adopted homeland. But in practice, these imported jokesters often seem to pander to their liberal audiences -- and that typically means unleashing vile attacks on the Trump administration. These comedians include Canadian-born Samantha Bee, British-born John Oliver and James Corden, and South African-born Trevor Noah. Out to 'fix' America Bee, 48, who acquired U.S. citizenship in 2014, is the latest example of comedians going too far in a bid to score cheap political points. She...

    Celebrities have opinions they like to share. Sometimes, what they have to say comes and goes without a blink, and other times it dominates a news cycle. In most cases, their thoughts are insignificant and don’t matter. President Trump is attacked on a regular basis by alleged comedians on late night talk shows. Jimmy Kimmel is one of Trump’s most prominent attackers. But has Kimmel become bored with his verbal assaults? Recently, Deadline interviewed Kimmel. He was asked if there was a “barrel full of barbs” for Trump in his upcoming ABC standup routine show. He surprisingly said he only...
