Comedy is based on making people laugh, which is a primal instinct in human beings. Laughter can be in appreciation, reciprocation, being uncomfortable, shock, or any number of things, but one has to tune into that last one: Shock. There do exist out there shock comics, whose entire repertoire consists of "shock" material. This is the kind of thing that is taboo or, almost taboo, and completely takes them aback.

BUT.

The act of laughter releases endorphins, regardless of the reason for laughter. So, comics will go for whichever tack they're most suited for, most comfortable with, and use that to make their material.

In general, I find just about any joke to be funny. I have a sense of humor, and I'm not a self-righteous, sheltered, 21st century ******* who wants everything to be PC. I am a lesbian and had a hard time coming out, but gay jokes don't faze me. I'm also not wealthy, and I'm single in my mid-twenties; jokes about the ****tiness of the situation do not offend me.

The problem I've been seeing is that people are taking offense to things which are not meant personally, taking a self-righteous tack when something isn't even directed to or at them.

People need to communicate without feeling as though they're walking on eggshells, like, "Oh, Hell, who am I going to offend with this statement which is not directed at anyone in particular, but is more a commentary on the state of affairs at the present moment?"

So, basically, suck a dick, self-righteous douche-nozzles.

in tosh's case tho thats not a good time to speak up about how offended you are


thats why we gotta sepearate everyday humor and comedians. if someone says to me, hey 216 that joke you made about mexicans rapin me kinda made me offended, then i would no longer make mexican or rape jokes around them most likely

but if you go to a comedy club, just expect it. heckler white knights and crybabies shouldnt be at the comedy club anyway. when you start gettin all vocal about bein offended there then youre just a baby and a loser and need escorted out

Agreed, this is otherwise known as 'Scouse syndrome'. right-track can confirm.

Why get offended if it's not personal? This bloke was a nobody to you.

Cool, thanks. I saw a Dane Cook special (horrible) like a decade ago and Lisa Lampanelli (ridiculous) does those lame celebrity roasts.

Special question: is Tosh in that category because of the rape jokes or because he's as legit unfunny to you as the others?

How is this not personal? He was nobody to me but he made himself a threat.

weird group



artie lange > all


but his best work was on the stern show with the everyday type humor and sharp and quick wit and commentary. stand up is still pretty funny but i have a feelin ppl here wouldnt like it lol. lots of racism, homophobia, etc



if i was a rape victim i dont think id be really offended by that comment cause i know they are just jokin and its just a phrase. words and meanings change dependin on context. but who knows


phanastasio youre right, its like i preach all the time. its ppl bein self righteous
