It's legitimately depressing how far the standard has fallen in comedy. There used to be things you could look forward to.
He's the guy off the advert for a comedy show I was talking about the other day. Can't remember its name, just remember one of the 'jokes' in the trailer was a woman saying '20 year old man expects applause for not being a misogynist'. I went on a tirade about cackhanded, low-effort and nakedly orwellian left wing comedy now is. It's literally just 'get individual of X, Y or Z """""victim""""" group, and have them passive aggressively condescend to audience, with inference that failure to laugh is evidence of personal failing.
At least ten years ago they got semi-talented white men to do it. Now they've mostly fallen on their swords (not by choice), the establishment is left with a pool of unfunny foreigners and women to choose from.
On TV specifically I meant but also in general.
The fast show, Harry & Paul, Vic & Bob, Brass Eye like you said etc.
Some days I can post sporadically at all hours tbh, but I usually make sure to check in on the evening if I haven't been on during the day.
It's probably a good thing they're pushing this far. Attacking some far right bigot (who's usually fat) is something most of the public will get behind, but now they're attacking them directly, just for being themselves, just for trying to be decent in their own way. More people are going to be getting sick of this shit and tuning out.
It's got to the point where even I think I'm not going to bother to watch it ironically anymore, unless a special occasion.
I honestly have no idea, my brain recoils at imagining the type of person.
Ah fantastic, are you not going to post it here?
As a young teenager I remember watching Have I Got News For You as it seemed very witty but now watching any comedy just feels like being preached to be a new self-appointed moral class of people
