Look I know Louis CK is America’s sweetheart right now so before everyone grabs their pitchforks let me make one thing clear: Louis CK is my favorite stand up comedian. His show is one of my favorites on television. I could live 1000 years and I’ll never make one joke as good as him. But as a person, I’m pretty fucking sick of him. Lucky for me, unlike most of America, I can put aside my distaste for someone and still appreciate them for being great at their job (see: Kanye West, Bill Simmons).
But Louis is kind of getting out of hand with this whole “I do things against the grain because I can” thing. First he filmed his show and sold it online instead of putting it on DVD, and I bought it. Then he decided he wanted to say fuck you to ticketmaster and sold his tickets himself, and I bought them. Then he hired a black actress to play his ex-wife and the mother of his two ginger babies and offered the explanation “I dare you to give a shit,” and I got kind of annoyed.
You can only be a non-conformist for so long and I guess black women being the mother of transparent red heads is where I draw the line. And last night on The Daily Show was the final straw. He went on spewing some story straight out of a PR handbook that he had no idea Daniel Tosh was in trouble and he wasn’t defending him amidst the rape controversy at all. It’s the 21st century dude. You’re the biggest act in comedy. Tosh is number 2. Someone told you that there was a shitstorm going on. Don’t play the ignorant card here. You tell rape jokes too. Don’t pretend this whole experience enlightened you to the fact that women have to be cautious where they walk and what they wear. You’re an adult and trying to pretend you didn’t know adults raped each other is not even remotely believable. Just go back to being the funniest dude on the planet and quit trying to change the way the world works and bitching about the internet. It’s annoying.
But yea, let’s kill all the Jews.
