There's probably a reason I've never heard of any of these "comedians."

When comedy tries to take itself seriously it ceases being comedy.

This is a fine example of why women comics are rarely funny. Just bad writing bolstered by the 'mah vaginah' politics. So freaking terrible.

I think these women are overly sensitive and i think they're mad at these male comedians bc they're all way funnier than them and i believe women are mad in general bc they have smaller brains [fact]. Another thing there's no room for political correctness and sensitivity in comedy.

The machete joke is NOT funny. It’s childish sarcastic and she’s trying too hard to turn comedy into a feminist issue... it isn’t. Never has and never will unless feminists are the butt of the joke or the butt joke. You get what I’m trying to say. The punchline, that’s it, punchline!

Never heard of any of them. Comedy is art and art is for the viewer/consumer to judge. There's no rule that comedy must be commercially successful, however comics don't get much support in the industry if the audience doesn't laugh. You can't force a business to sell a product no one wants and you can't force customers to buy what they don't like.
Goondock Saints (2 months ago)
2:32 "Look what women put up with every day" I don't go to a comedy club to listen to this - just like I don't go to the burn unit at the hospital to feel more attractive. Sell that rhetoric at protests or TEDx talks or wherever people go when they want to hear complaining.

So rap jokes are unfunny because it hurts people or whatever. Anything kills you. Yet you can joke about diseases and gun violence and no one cares. Get over it. A joke is a joke.

daniel orejuela (3 months ago)
If u take a joke apart the whole reason they’re funny is because of how dark it really is and you laugh because of that. I remember I used to watch looney tunes and would mostly laugh because of the funny faces cartoons made after getting hit, I was a kid at the time. When people say it’s not funny like just take a second to think about something that what really makes it so funny and just think of anyone or anything your are offending whether it’s something little or big

"When you are making a joke and you are gonna punch someone..." How about no. I can make a joke without criticizing or attacking anyone, even if it's an "offensive" joke; and have a better time listening to such jokes as well. I am not watching stand-up to get lectured by comedians on ethics or sociopolitical matters. I can inform my self on such subjects from actually credible sources. Heck, if someone of Bill Burr's standing makes sure to reiterate how he knows nothing and is just rambling, a comedian who has some things of value to say, laughs aside, why would I think any of these people in the video are experts in how anyone should lead their lives? It seems like arrogance, in taking it as granted that they are right; and ignorance, as to how shallow their views are on the things they do talk about and they don't seem to even get it; go hand in hand. Along with a hefty does of "victim culture", because some people just don't grow out of whining their way to what they want. And of course it all comes down to "just do what I say and don't think". Nice example of how to not act as a woman or as a human being. Thank goodness the women in my life have turned out to have what it takes to stand on their own two legs without begging while demanding for people's obedience just so they can satisfy their ego.

@Madeline H. Comedy comes from an uncomfortable tension, laughter is they only way to release that tension. laughter is also a coping mechanism, many people can heal through laughter. there are also people who chose to tell their painful stories through comedy. also, jokes are funny because they have an element of darkness to them. jokes are usually made at somebody else's expense, and a large number of jokes are based on somebody else's misfortune. comedy shows and movies usually show people getting hurt in some fashion.

"Nothing is off limit for comedy." enough said. That should have been the entire video right there. Instead they made a whole video about comedy that didn't have an ounce of comedic value.

Woman can't be funny, God created men to be funny to stop woman from talking, and rather laughing.
Iamfilm711 (3 months ago)
A laugh doesn't necessarily have to spring from a trivialising mindset. Sometimes, comedy does the exact opposite. It makes you laugh and it makes you think. There's good comedy and bad comedy. Perhaps, it is the serious academician's scorn to think of the role of comic as lowly and trivialising. Comedy subverts, dissents and equalises. No pretentious feminist can deny that.
