Steve Harvey said that cancel culture has “killed comedy,” and it’s caused him to step away from doing stand-up. He says that every joke these days allegedly hurts somebody’s feelings, and that when he finally does another stand-up special, he’ll probably have to call it “This Is It” because he’ll never be allowed to do another one.

Personally, while I understand his viewpoint, I believe that now more than ever, we need comedians to step up and tell as many jokes as possible about the “woke” left. Knuckling under to them only gives them a greater sense of their own power to censor and intimidate. Comedians have always been society’s greatest weapon against arrogant tyrants, and just because the tyrants are self-righteous “activists” with Twitter accounts instead of politicians or military dictators, that shouldn’t make them immune to richly-deserved ridicule.

In a related story, here’s a must-read article by Bari Weiss at Substack about the dire situation in Hollywood, where leftism and wokeism have many people terrified of saying anything that might offend someone and get them blacklisted (just using the word “blacklisted” can now get you blacklisted.)

It’s gone beyond a welcome openness to writers and creators of more diverse backgrounds to the point where there’s blatant discrimination against white job applicants. That means more racially diverse writers, but also means that good, experienced writers are being shut out, which helps to explain why so much of what we’re now seeing on our screens isn’t fresh, creative, thrilling or entertaining, it’s just transparent leftist propaganda that feels as if it were written by freshman UCLA film school students. It’s why, if you want well-written stories with sharp dialogue, original stories and believable characters, you’ll need a subscription to Turner Classic Movies.

    I’m glad that these intolerant leftists haters did not exist when my favorite comedy show, the Dean Martin Celebrety Roast was on. Otherwise all those comedians on the stage will be canceled as well as the popular personalities in the audience who we’re having a great time.

    Perhaps Harvey is concerned about his sensitive friends. The left is rapidly losing control of the COVID narrative. Tyrants never go down without a fight. Be wise. Never surrender.

    If we put the blacklisTORS in jail there would be no blacklisting. They are the VAST minority. Bout time we STOPPED listening to them. We've spent the last 20 years listening to communist voices instead of AMERican voices. TV reflects the woke. You are so right, no wonder rerun channels are popping up all over the place. TCM seems to be where real story telling is. That died along with journalism in @2009. Hollywood needs a thorough housecleaning. The communists we were warned about need to be in work camps or better yet the FEMA camps they built for conservatives.

    Hi Mike,
    This is what I pray will happen after elections of 2022. If the Republicans get the House and Senate, I pray that Represenative Green, from Georgia, get her petition to impeach Biden can be accomplished. VP Harris should alao be impeached and tried on Treason. Tye Republican Representative, Kevin McCarthy should become the President until 2024 when we can put the rightful Presdident can be put back in office. Maybe you can help bring that point yo viiew with Hannity in the future!! Gid Bless and have a great day!!

    I used to enjoy watching comedy on tv, but any more I can’t stand to watch it. It’s not funny anymore. It’s just stupid and doesn’t even make sense. It’s like when Anhauser Busch was sold and the did away with the Clydesdales. Those commercials were wonderful. Now nobody watches them. I for one stopped buying their products.

    I completely agree with you about comedians standing up to woke narratives. I really like Steve Harvey and I hope he changes his mind, or maybe he will actually do a stand up show and have overwhelming support.
