Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam On The BBC’s Diversity Push: ‘I’m A Black Lesbian’

ca7fe236-6c76-48de-84d9-85e9c3261ce6.jpg

" My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”

Last month, BBC “comedy controller” Shane Allen announced a new slate of shows for the fall with a particular emphasis on the diversity of the programs.

Someone asked Allen if that would rule out shows like Monty Python in the future. He replied, “If you’re going to assemble a team now, it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes. It’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world.” That didn’t sit well with director and Monty Python cast member Terry Gilliam. Gilliam was asked what he thought of the comments and said he wanted to henceforth be known as a black lesbian:

Speaking at a press conference at the Karlovy Vary film festival, where he was presenting his new film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam said: “It made me cry: the idea that … no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show. Now we need one of this, one of that, everybody represented… this is bullshit. I no longer want to be a white male, I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian… My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”

He added: “[Allen’s] statement made me so angry, all of us so angry. Comedy is not assembled, it’s not like putting together a boy band where you put together one of this, one of that everyone is represented.”

The latter part is clearly coming from genuine frustration, i.e. “comedy is not assembled.” Monty Python was a group of college friends who had worked together on various comedy specials in the 1960s. So the idea of bean-counting comedians by race and gender probably does rankle Gilliam a bit.

TheOnion.com to be 15% less funny

It looks like TheOnion.com and Univision’s other satirical websites will soon be about 15 percent less funny. Maybe 14. Or it could be 16,

There are staff cuts coming at The Onion.com

Like many giant media companies anticipating rough waters in recent years, Univision had this really great idea to spread out and diversify its appeal. Its goal was to attract younger, Spanish-language fans who often consume media online in English. It did the same when it bought the Gizmodo Media Group, including the now-defunct Gawker site, Deadspin, Jezebel and the Root.

But then Univision’s dream of an IPO died earlier this year. And now just a month into the reign of new CEO Vince Sadusky come trade reports that Univision is about to start negotiations with editorial staff of the Onion and its affiliated sites, Clickhole, the A.V. Club and The Takeout to arrange buyouts before actual layoffs.

Onion sites attract a collective 120 million unique monthly users. But market analysts speculate the new executive team may be changing course again.

These cuts aren’t funny to millions of fans. In fact, anytime you see someone in public inexplicably erupt in laughter, it’s obviously because they just read, heard or remembered an Onion headline. The Titanic sinking: “World’s Largest Metaphor Hits Ice-Berg.” “‘First Date Going Really Well,’ Thinks Man Who Hasn’t Stopped Talking Yet.”

...Alleged comedian Michelle Wolf paid tribute to the most important facet of American life: abortion.

On her Netflix show on Sunday, Wolf dressed up in red, white and blue, and shrieked into the camera, "God bless abortions, and God bless America!" She explained: "Women, if you need an abortion, get one! If you want an abortion, get one! ... And women, don't forget: You have the power to give life and men will try to control that. Don't let them!"

Along with that inane outburst, she justified abortion itself. "Look," she stated, "access to abortion is good and important. Some people say abortion is killing a baby. It's not. It's stopping a baby from happening."

Well, some people say Michelle Wolf is killing comedy. She's not. She's stopping comedy from happening.

Yes, abortion is now a signifier that you refuse to be ruled by the patriarchy. Avoidance of pregnancy may be a wise life choice, according to third-wave feminists, preventing women from being sucked into the grinding maw of maternal life. But abortion is something even better: a signal that you just don't care about the system. The system demands that if you're pregnant with a child, you make your own concerns secondary; the system must be fought.

Gloria Steinem once remarked, "If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament." But modern-day feminists have determined that abortion is a sacrament specifically because women can get pregnant: Showing that control over your body even extends to the killing of your unborn child is a way of standing up against patriarchal concerns with women as the source of future generations.

For Michelle Wolf, abortion isn't just another decision. It's a giant middle finger to the moral establishment. And those who would fight abortion are desacralizing the mysterious holiness of a ritual that reinforces women's control. No wonder Wolf thinks God blesses abortion; abortion is her god.

Ben's right... It's a satanic ritual.

And pushing their agenda is more important to satanists than making us laugh

Like Lefty humor, the Trump Blimp was a dud

(Looks like a fundraising exercise for party-time for circus freaks)

I can’t quite put my finger on it but I get the distinct feeling everyone in this photo might be a lunatic... Only in 2018 could this be described as "the Resistance!"

They have a right to protest.

But will this bring anyone on their side who is not a deranged idiot?

If Britain ever went to war, maybe they could put these freaks on the front line, and hope that the enemy dies laughing

MORE on the Trump Blimp's pathetic failure

Now this is funny. Remember the Hindenburg sized blimp of Trump over London that was going to rock his world?

This is it.

sipa_23686545.2e16d0ba.fill-735x490.jpg

The Trump Effigy is flying high over London, casting long dark shadows and can be seen for miles around, blocking out both The Shard and The Wembley Arch from the skyline. This will finish his Presidency!

Blimey... it's not even the size of a Bouncy castle. Trust the socialists to cock up everything. Mock them mercilessly over this.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Writer Michael Che Slams Unfunny Comedy Culture

Che references recent Netflix comedy specials that seem to favor political correctness over humor. Hannah Gadsby’s recent stand-up special titled “Nanette” ditches jokes and instead talks about her life as a queer woman. She also discusses, in detail, being raped and sexually assaulted. Che seems to reference this in his next story, which says rape stories aren’t comedy.

ya know some critics say rape jokes arent funny. but you know whats DEFINITELY not funny? rape stories. just flat out, fully detailed rape stories. I dunno about you, but that hasnt made me laugh once.

Che said in a later story that he hasn’t watched “Nannette” and told fans to “stop asking.” Replying to fans who direct-messaged him about his statements, Che stated that passing off rape stories as comedy makes him feel “lied to.”

I dont wanna have to ‘survive’ a comedy special. I wanna laugh. lets not make this what its not.

. . . Che ended his thread by acknowledging that many in comedy will ignore his criticism and offer excuses. However, his message remains the same: comedy is supposed to make people laugh. And it hasn’t been doing a lot of that lately.

HUMOR WORKS ... when it is mixed with a real issue, like this

This Version of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Mocks Liberals

& Reminds Us How Ridiculous Their PC Rules Are

Baby-Its-Cold-parody.jpg

There’s currently a holy jihad against the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Written in 1944, the holiday classic is currently verboten because it includes the line, “Say, what’s in this drink?” — apparently, to some, a sign that the male figure in the holiday tune was going to drug and rape the female figure.

I wasn’t alive 74 years ago, but then as now drugging women and then raping them was beyond frowned upon. Many things in gender relations changed in the intervening three-quarters of a century but I’m fairly confident that isn’t one of them.

Nor is it a predatory anthem where a man is constantly importuning a woman desperately, another argument used against the standard. Holiday favorites generally aren’t built on such a foundation, and you would hope people would realize this. Alas, no.

Radio stations across the country have taken it off their playlists. An indoor lacrosse team in Saskatchewan has made news for the indignation they’ve caused by showing support for the song, which is a sign of just how contentious the issue is because nobody cares about indoor lacrosse anywhere it’s played, much less Saskatchewan.

REVIVING COMEDY

Nolte: Dave Chappelle Just Might Save America

davechappellesticks1-640x480.jpg

Comedian Dave Chappelle’s latest Netflix special, Sticks & Stones, is one of the greatest hours of comedy I have ever seen — which is saying a lot. As much as I enjoyed his legendary sketch show from 15 years ago (which I only recently caught up with), I had not been all that impressed with his Netflix specials.

Granted, coming up with an hour of solid stand-up material is probably one of the hardest jobs in the world of show business, and very few can pull it off on a regular basis. Bill Cosby and George Carlin were the Ted Williams of this feat, the closest to enjoying a perfect record. Even The Mighty Richard Pryor had his Here and Now.

Chappelle’s done it. Sticks & Stones is a rarity: a perfect piece of art… Nothing could be improved upon, nothing need be touched up. Every brush stroke is exactly where it should be.

And what makes a stand up routine perfect is something that goes beyond the funny… There are probably at least 12 cylinders that must fire: solid jokes, timing, tone, knowing your audience, dealing with hecklers, insight, truth… But the most important one is having a theme, an overarching idea that sends the audience home thinking about something more than the punch-lines.

Throughout the hour, Chappelle does dozens of bits, but if you’re paying attention, all of them are woven together by one common idea, and that is Chappelle’s demand for his right to enjoy free and unfettered artistic expression.

Dave Chappelle wants to talk about what he wants to talk about, which is a God-given right that had been slowly melting away, starting in the late-eighties with the puritan jihads against Sam Kinison and Andrew Dice Clay. But as of late, in this new blacklisting era of ours, that right is almost entirely gone, and Chappelle is done sitting in the back of the satire bus.

Sometimes he comes right out and says this; the subtext becomes text, and that’s fine…

But even when he’s not saying it, he’s still saying it.

When Chappelle jokes about how great it would be to be molested by Michael Jackson, he is not arguing that it would be great to be molested by Michael Jackson, what he’s saying is, Fuck you, I’m going to joke about the most forbidden thing to joke about because fuck you and fuck you this is America, I’m an American and did I mention fuck you?

. . .

 

My GOD, is there a more beautiful sight than a truly free man being truly free?

My favorite part was a story Chappelle told about a meeting with standards and practices when he was doing The Chappelle Show.

They told him that under no circumstance could he ever use the word “faggot”  in a sketch

Actor Tim Robbins opened up about his ongoing campaign for prison reform at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday, arguing that new measures will help foster both a “safer and more humane society.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Robbins — who starred as an incarcerated man in the cult classic prison drama Shawshank Redemption — talked about The Actor’s Gang Prison Project, a theater program running in 13 Californian state prisons aimed at breaking down divisions between inmates. His documentary, 45 Seconds of Laughter, provides a behind-the-scenes look at the program in action at a Level Four-security facility in Calipatria State Prison.

YES. Spitting Image was a classic.

Humor used to be a way to speak Truth to Power.

Now the Lie Stream media speaks Lies to Trump, and that is not funny.

Here's how to deliver truth about the power of Toxic Feminism:

=====

Capture-9-620x371.png

Dave Chappelle’s new comedy special on Netflix is making massive waves, and while I’ve already covered it twice, this moment in his special is one of the ones that really had me paying attention to what he was saying behind what he was saying.

During his set, Chappelle began discussing abortion and began by saying something you typically hear from the left when it comes to making arguments in that if you’re a man, you should stay out of the abortion debate altogether.

Wait for it.

Chappelle doesn’t stop there as many “comedians” do. Instead, Chappelle takes the argument to its logical end and then says something afterward that caught my attention.

“Gentleman, that is fair,” said Chappelle after saying that women shouldn’t have to consult anyone except a physician.

“And ladies, to be fair to us, I also believe that if you decide to have the baby, a man should not have to pay,” said Chappelle. “That’s fair.”

“If you can kill this motherf***er, I can at least abandon them,” he continued. “It’s my money, my choice.”

Chappelle finished by leaving the crowd and the viewer something to ponder. It wasn’t even a joke, just an interesting thing to say after all of that.

“And if I’m wrong, then perhaps we’re wrong,” he said.

Even when agreeing with the pro-abortion argument, Chappelle manages to find a way to make them angry by declaring that if women can be so independent, then so can the men. I should not that I’m personally not in favor of either of these, but it can’t be ignored that women can’t have it so that they can be both unconcerned with what a man thinks but lay claim to his wallet.

What got my attention, however, was the ending phrase. There is no doubt that many women would take exception to his argument about men not having to be responsible for babies they don’t want. If these women are saying that Chappelle is wrong for standing by that philosophy, then they fall into the category about being wrong about abortion altogether.

I should note that as a pro-life man myself, I think fathers should take absolute responsibility for the children they helped create. Fatherless homes create a myriad of problems all on their own, so I’m not in agreement with Chappelle on either point.

But I like the fact that Chappelle leaves the answer open for discovery, claiming that if it’s wrong for him to think that way about the rights of fathers then perhaps he’s also wrong about the arguments toward abortion.

=====

Personally, I am sick and tired of people with excessive power claiming to be victims and demanding free passes

The Babylon Bee Takes on the Fauxtrage Mob’s Ridiculous War on Comedian Dave Chappelle – and Wins

DaveChappelleAPimage-620x317.jpg

Because Democrats and so-called progressives have so heavily invested themselves in “identity politics”, under normal circumstances any criticisms of Chappelle would be viewed and called out as “racist” because the comedian is black.

But those rules don’t apply in this case, because Chappelle is doing what fewer and fewer comedians are doing in modern times when it comes to the demands from the left for milquetoast “comedy” and “safe spaces” for minority groups: he’s, in a nutshell, giving them the bird.

With that in mind, the geniuses at the Babylon Bee wrote one of the better takes on liberals and their reactions to Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones” special:

After some confusion was expressed by casual observers of apparent hypocrisy in their denunciation of Dave Chappelle’s most recent comedy special, liberals from around the country clarified that they only want black voices to be heard when those voices are saying liberal-approved things.

The offended white progressives asked black comedian Dave Chappelle to “keep it down” and “maybe not talk so much” after his comments made them feel uncomfortable, sources confirmed Thursday.
