Comedy hasn't changed, but society sure has
A couple people have asked what I thought about Michelle Wolf’s monologue at the White House Correspondents Dinner. If you don’t know about this controversy, then you need to look at other websites besides www.allthedicks.com and www.jomama.com.
I will most likely have the same opinions as most of my comedian counterparts who have commented on the event.
I am on the side of the comedian. I am on the side of the female comedian. And for the record, I will always be on the side of the comedian and especially the female comedian.
Many criticized her for being vulgar, crass and unprofessional. People need to review the definitions of those words because they are a part of the definition of a comedian. A comedian’s job in this event especially is to make you think.
First, don’t hire a comedian who is liberal for your conservative party. Wolf said herself, “You should’ve done your research.” And that is very true. If Republicans wanted softball jokes they should’ve hired one of those redneck gun-loving comedians.
Also, how do you expect a comedian to not just tear into this administration? It’s the craziest most fucked up presidency ever. The joke material is abundant. How could she not make fun of all these things we hear in the news EVERY DAY.

Lastly, get over it. It’s comedy. Jokes are made every day, and many are good and many are bad. Many you don’t agree with. And that is because comedy is subjective. We don’t laugh at the same things, but that doesn’t mean Wolf is a terrible comedian.
It just means that people need to review the definition of comedy, free speech and butt hurt.
