I thought the same thing. He’s going on about how he “won’t be summoned,” but then offers “an audience” with himself? Like stop breathing in your own exhaust fumes, buddy. The result is really not a good look.
I think you hit on something insanely important: Adapt or die. Comedians like Chappelle and Seinfeld seem stuck in a bygone era of comedy to me. When I think about the comedy that has stood out to me in the past ten years or so, it is often the more layered and meaty stuff that stands out (and is in direct opposition… Read more
I just saw Gadsby a few weeks ago doing her new show Body of Work, and it was funny as fuck. She’s an insanely talented comedian. The fact that an autistic woman can hold a theatre full of people in the palm of her hand, so emotionally engaged with her that she can make you laugh or cry, is pretty much testament to… Read more
I continue to be amazed at the inability of men in general, and male comedians in particular, to fathom that maybe, just maybe, they might not be the intended audience for a performance. Their whole lives, every piece of media they’ve consumed has been targeted at them by media producers catering to their desires, so… Read more
iirc, people in DC also found a way to make Spencer feel unwelcome....

I remember, at the end of third grade, the school principal came around to our classroom with one of the fourth-grade teachers—we’ll call her Dr. Brown. They explained, “Now some of you may be in Dr. Brown’s class next year. She’s not like your doctor that you go to for checkups or when you’re sick, so you don’t have… Read more

“now watch me do sick burnouts in this new Ferrari!"
Your opinion repulses and yet your bravery inspires. Thank you for sharing this embarrassing man opinion.
Gifted amateurs are the very backbone of bisexuality, keeping the discipline pure.
I saw the Times had to add new colors to their heat map this morning to better illustrate the severity in some places. Honestly though, the people who get under my skin more than the straight up assholes screaming about their liberties are all the so-called progressive “empaths” in my general orbit who run their… Read more
Seriously, though: the allegation here is that representatives of the Biden-Harris campaign forged fraudulent ballots...and they did this in a van marked with Biden-Harris campaign logos, in a public parking lot, and forged the ballots as they were parked? Read more
Not really related, but one time I had a job interview with Laura Ingraham when I was like 22 and an idiot. My old boss was like yeah I know her, you should totally work on her show, but I had no idea who she was. Anyway, she and I chatted, conversation went well, then at the end of the call she was like “So how badly… Read more
That’s the hubris, right there. That’s a white man’s hubris.
It’s a surprisingly universal metaphor.
