Whether it's reporting on conflicts abroad and political divisions at home, or covering the latest style trends and scientific developments, New York Times video journalists provide a revealing and unforgettable view of the world. It's all the news that's fit to watch.
Our society has made it impossible to tell great jokes without feminists, homosexuals or races losing their minds! My mom is Italian and father is Scottish and some of the best jokes they told was about each other. Why? BECAUSE IT’S JUST A JOKE!!
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.
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.
