At 58 years old, I grew up with “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son,” Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, “The Benny Hill Show,” Rodney Dangerfield, Sam Kinison, “The Jeffersons,” and all the movies with similar content such as “Blazing Saddles.”
We laughed at all of it. Everyone received the “treatment.”
I believe in the advancement of the human race. As I state regularly, I do not see the need to destroy what is good to advance the cause.
Good comedy is based on a little truth and irreverence.
In today’s woke world, what humor is not offensive?
Is there any subject which is now not offensive to someone?
What can we joke about?
It seems nothing.
