I like how he starts off by talking about the honor of getting hired by SNL, and then immediately undercuts it by saying he preferred MadTV.

Why are comments similar to those kids used to make when I was 12 considered boundary pushing? To me it’s more lazy than anything.

Fuck that. I love Trebek with all of my heart, but I have to hear him Francoslur his way through that word multiple times a week every week. I will not subject myself to it again in montage form.

Is “I was always a mad tv guy” supposed to be a Ms Swan reference?

Hey Shane. I know you created a burner account to comment on that other A.V. Club story on you. I want you to know that I’m Chinese, and I think the things you said about my people and my culture are really, really shitty.

“I’m a comedian who was funny enough to get SNL”

“I was a comedian who was funny enough to get SNL. That can’t be taken away.”

I think comedy ages worse than just about every other genre of entertainment, and that’s something to keep in mind.

I’m not sure how a comedian who thinks making fun of Chinese accents is soooo edgy and hilarious had such an impressive audition, but ok, SNL. Lorne needs to retire already.

I think it’s important to note these comments were fairly recent, too. This isn’t Kevin Hart making a joke that, at the time, wasn’t offensive to most people. (Still a shitty joke, but context matters in comedy.)
