Leftists in Hollywood and their pals in the media can’t stand the success Tim Allen has experienced in “Last Man Standing.”
Fortunately, all of their attempts to sabotage the show – including ABC’s cancellation – and Tim Allen’s career have failed.
Now, Tim Allen is going on an epic rant against political correctness and you’ll never guess what he said on ABC’s The View.
Allen is well-known for being a conservative.
He is also well-known for being an outstanding comedian and has made an impressive career for himself in comedy and in acting.
But his comedy act would most likely never be accepted in today’s political climate.
Which is why when Tim Allen talked with Joy Behar on The View, he gave an epic rant how today’s political correctness is ruining the comedy world.
The Washington Times reports:
Actor and comedian Tim Allen said on ABC’s “The View” that political correctness has had an “alarming” effect on comedy.
The “Last Man Standing” star agreed with co-host and fellow comedian Joy Behar that the changing culture has made many jokes by legendary comedians too taboo in today’s context.
“It’s a little bit different now. I mean, there’s a PC culture that makes it really hard,” Ms. Behar said. “I think my act, if I ever brought that old act back, I’d be driven out of town.”
Mr. Allen, who just wrapped up a 44-city comedy tour, said it’s dramatically changed the way he does standup.
“What I’ve got to do sometimes is explain — which I hate, in big arenas, and this is a thought police thing and I do not like it — but when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words,” Mr. Allen said.
Tim Allen is right.
Political correctness has taken over the entertainment industry.
Some comedians, like Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock, have stated that they will never perform at a college because the audience is too sensitive.
The Left is determining what kind of material can be considered humorous and silencing talented comedians.
TV networks have also succumbed to monitoring the kind jokes that are used in order to avoid any and all controversy.
What do you think?
Is the Left hurting the comedy world?
