Great comedy not only makes you laugh, it makes you think. It makes you think because great comedy is formed around an idea.
Dave Chappelle, Jerry Senfield, Ricky Gervais and others are doing this.
Gervais revolved his comedy around an idea while hosting the Golden Globes. The idea, he shared right to Hollywood’s face, is simple. Actors and directors shouldn’t lecture us about life and politics.
People don’t need or want to hear it.
While the Golden Globes aren’t important, Gervais’ commentary is. Comedians have steadily been calling out to so-called ‘cancel culture.’ Cancel culture is the woke crowd. The crowd that takes offense to everything, to things you may have tweeted ten years ago.
They are bad for America.
Gervais also followed up with four points all need to hear. We run through these, commercial free, on this podcast. You’ll love them.
