"It's very dicey. It's very tricky," Spade responded. "You used to have to say anything to go as far as you could, to push the envelope, to get attention, and people would be like, 'I like this guy. He's pushing it.' And in comedy clubs, audiences really appreciate that."
He added: "Now you say the one wrong move and you're canceled. It's a very tough world out there."
"I think all the comedians have gotten together, in a way, to say we just have to keep doing what we were doing, and the people that come to the shows will appreciate it," he explained. "But you get an outsider that comes in and goes, 'I was so offended.' The intent is not to be mean… If the intent is to do it as a joke or a spin on something, and it is mean to people, but you're just making fun of that, I don't think that's horrible. I've been in the business doing it for 20 years, so I hope comics are allowed to be comics. I really hope so."
From the comments section....
All humor is strictly VERBOTTEN by our Regressive Hitler Youth who were created and programmed by the most powerful and corrupt corporate oligarchs in human history! So much for their lame cry that they're "speaking truth to power"! It's now "speaking propaganda for the BENEFIT of power"
