Lousy Comedians

I went to a comedy night tonight, supposedly the best female comedian in New York.

I found her dull.

I’m not one to be offended, though she tried her best.  Every other word was “f” this or that.  All of her jokes were predictable and racist.  I’m not offended- it just wasn’t funny.

This comedian relied on 1) using foul language in the same way a 10 year old does when he’s learned a new naughty word, 2) constantly plugging that she’s doing a movie with Robert DeNiro, and 3) constantly referring to herself as funny, and people who don’t laugh as up tight and scared to laugh.

This comedian is unimportant, but perhaps a sign of what has become of the art of comedy.  As well respected of a comedian as this person is, it goes to show that comedy is pretty much some shock value nonsense and worn out jokes.

Anyway, I am not going to work through all of the philosophy of this, but I am tired from from a mediocre performace.

Thank you for reading my post.
