Comedy has been neutered by “wokeness.”
Everyone is walking on eggshells for fear of getting canceled.
And one liberal comedian made a jaw-dropping announcement about his failing show.
Liberal comedian Jon Stewart quit The Daily Show and turned over the reins to correspondent Trevor Noah.
As a result, both of their careers have gone in the tank.
Stewart’s Apple+ show The Problem with Jon Stewart has been a huge flop, and Noah has steered The Daily Show into the abyss.
Now Noah is quitting the show.
“Compared to Noah, Stewart was everything the fake media said he was…Jon Stewart’s ratings had been close to a statically zero. Somehow Noah, whose arrival was treated as though a new pope had been announced, managed to attract an audience of nearly less than zero. How is it even possible in a country of 330 million, a Trevor Noah, with billions of dollars in free media promotion and the power of a multinational corporation like Paramount Media Networks behind him, attracted only 363,000 viewers? … Trevor Noah’s problem was that he has almost no charisma, he isn’t very funny, and his left-wing humor — which is really propaganda with a laugh track — is predictable and therefore dull. Humor emanates from a grain of truth mixed with surprise. Noah surprised no one. At least Jon Stewart had energy and could mug and make faces that emitted funny voices. Noah always looked like he was ready for bed.”
Like so many other left-wing talk shows, The Daily Show was just a paid advertisement for the DNC.
Only every once in a blue moon would Noah poke fun at the left.
For example, Noah once joked that Donald Trump was being “woke” by calling out Elizabeth Warren for being a fake Native American and publishing a lobster bisque recipe in a cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow.”
Upon leaving, Noah announced, “I’ve loved hosting the show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges…It’s been one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly [expletive] on the worst days. We’ve laughed together. We’ve cried together. But, after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”
It was definitely time to pull the plug on the show.
Samantha Bee’s horrendous Comedy Central show also went away.
The “highlight” of her show was when she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt” because of her father’s immigration policy.
That’s what passes for comedy on the left today.
“Woke” comedy is slowly getting weeded out.
“Noah’s plans to depart surface as TV’s late-night roster has begun to shrink. Yes, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel still appear every weeknight around 11:30 p.m. to poke fun at daily headlines and do celebrity impressions and stunts, but they have fewer rivals. At Warner Bros. Discovery, executives have scuttled late-night shows led by both Samantha Bee and Conan O’Brien, and have made no efforts to replace either. Comedy Central once boasted three different programs, led by Stewart, Colbert and Chris Hardwick. Now the cable network is down to just one. Showtime’s ‘Desus & Mero’ recently stopped production. James Corden has already indicated he plans to step down from CBS’ ‘The Late Late Show’ next year, and NBC is no longer in the business of airing comedy programming at 1:30 a.m. after parting ways with Lilly Singh in 2021.”
Perhaps liberals are finally figuring out that audiences want actual comedy, not left-wing political commentary with an “applause” button.
