Norm and Doug: Two Comedians Rejecting PC

We live in a time when one comedian after another has been so badly bitten by the political-correctness bug that he’s lost not his wits but his wit. Humor, it’s been said, is the ultimate enemy of tyranny; so when people whose job is to make us laugh at our culture’s sacred cows choose instead to march in lockstep behind its high priests, it’s time to worry.

Fortunately, most of the comedians who’ve tamed themselves in the name of social justice and ultra-sensitivity to victim-group sensibilities – the first three names that come to mind are Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and Chelsea Handler – were never that great to begin with.
