Williams the cat there is a challenge for all comedians who cling to the state of comedy in 2021
because of the so-called “culture of cancellation” … do better, be better and be funnier.
The legendary comic told his thoughts on the much discussed topic with Joe Buddenand he basically assumed that the outrage against society and the audience in 2021 was too aroused or sensitive for comedy to function properly (or as it had been in the past), it was mostly Bologna.
Check it out for yourself … because it gives a pretty nuanced breakdown of what he thinks people are furious about – namely, that comedians are forced to evolve over time.
Kat says that certain words and / or themes are correctly invoked as inappropriate or out of bounds – and he explains that in most cases this is probably good … because the meaning of comedy is not to offend, but to entertain as much as possible. number of people.
He also notes everything that has happened over the years and with the advent of social media is that more people have been allowed to join the conversation … and as a result can talk about things they would always like found unpleasant – while, before they had no platform.
It’s a pretty captivating image … that actually reflects what Seth Rogen told the Independent about it not so long ago – when he said yes … some jokes are badly outdated and instead of getting angry that they were called for it, he said you just own and adapt accordingly.
Of course, not everyone agrees with Kat and Seth on this. Many comedians resent what they consider to be overly sensitive tastes these days … including one Billy Crystal, who recently called comedy today a “minefield” he no longer recognizes.
We assume that there are different blows for different people – but for KW … he doesn’t seem to sweat from tightening his belt in his business. If nothing else, it sounds as if he is taking it in stride.
