I last watched SNL when Eli was on and he was funny as hell on it.

snl's circa cast around like 2012 was kind underrated. Every cast member has moved on to legitimate success and most of them are great in stuff i've seen. Not at the level of the original group or mid 90s one but good.

Funny and unfunny jokes come from the same place. You never know if it's funny until you say it.

Patrice O'neal would be disappointed in all this.

Okay? My post wasn't calling for this guy to be branded as a racist and blackballed.

The bar hasn't changed. The Cheers guy bombed at an anything goes roast because he showed up in blackface and called people in the audience ******s... in the 90's before millenials were even a thing. Say whatever you want, but you gotta be funny to get over.

By being edgy and pushing limits. Comedians aren't racist to be racist. They exploit stereotypes for laughs. Libs just have a dry sense of humor.

Sorry, but just lazily using racial slurs isn’t funny. This guy didn’t even seem to be joking, it was from a podcast with him and his friend. There is also a theater in Philadelphia that said they wouldn’t work with him for his bigotry “On and OFF stage”

Using slurs isnt edgy or funny. Neither is it effective comedy. Dont be a moron and pretend he can say anything just because he has a comedic license. All occupations have a line that shoulndt be crossed. Dont forget what comedy is about, to provide laughter and amusement. Calling asians "ch1nk" isnt even funny unless youre 10 year old. At the same time insulting an entire race of people doesnt seem like effective or justifiable comedy
