Dirty Comedy Really That Bad?

I'm pretty sure we've all seen our share of both dirty and clean comics. The question I would like to raise is, are dirty comics really as bad as people make them out to be? After all, we laugh at them- does that make us equally guilty?

I personally don't understand why people complain about dirty humor. I honestly don't care whether a comedian is clean or not, so long as his material is interesting and funny. Even further, there are a variety of outlets out there anyway for different types of comedy. I don't understand why people complain when they have a choice- no one is forcing you to watch ComicView over Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes, the latter of which I find severely lacking in the 'funny' department, if it matters.

Some of us write off dirty comedians as wrong or perverse without hearing their acts, something that I really find disappointing and downright annoying. When we wake up everyday and step outside our homes, we step into a world of racism, or gender inequality, of profanity, and of sexual innuendos. These things are quite the drain and if someone is going to allow to me laugh at them, even if only for a short while, I'll gladly listen. Hell, I consider it a stress reliever. I'm sorry, but the real world is just not clean.

I've seen my fair share of good and bad stand-ups in both categories. It really all depends on your personal taste. Like I already said, it really doesn't matter to me whether it's clean or dirty comedy if it's good comedy. I don't know. . . I guess it just gets to me when I hear complainers going on about it. If these people put that energy into trying make the world a better place, dirty comedians wouldn't have any material, right? But who am I kidding- that wouldn't be any fun, would it?

  2. Its like with music. i don't see why if you don't like a genre of music, why don't you just not listen to it. No one is being forced to listen to so called dirty comedians, so there shouldn't be an issue.

    I myself enjoy the dirty comic a lot of the time, they are entertaining, raw, and real. Their jokes are usually based on real life experiences which is what makes them so funny. If people didn't want such graphic things to be said, all they need to do is make the world a less graphic place. And that's not too easy.

  3. I, Myself find nothing wrong with dirty comedy, because it's the riske, raw material that makes their acts funny and enjoyable. To those that are offended by these jokes have the same feelings as though who have issues wit certain music, which is to complain, scream foul, and make notice of what they didn't like while still buying the music or buying the ticket to see the comedian, because at the end of the day who is it really hurting to make people have fun and forget all their problems for 30 minutes to an hour.

  4. I don't have a problem with dirty comedy. First of all, it's not meant to be taken seriously, it's just supposed to make you laugh. Second thing, if it's offending you there's a very simple solution: change the channel or turn it off.

  5. I saw only a few minutes of The Original Queens of Comedy and I couldn't watch anymore because it was just too profane, especially coming from women. Ok, ok...maybe it was solely because of the fact that it was women with the potty mouths and it turned me off, lol. But regardless, I TURNED THE STATION...not whine and cry about "dirty comedy". This is a dumb issue. I don't even see why it's an issue at all. People are so dumb and petty nowadays it's disgusting. With all that's going on concerning politics, war, AIDS, poverty, genocide and countless other things, people can only find DIRTY COMEDY to bitch about. *Smh.........

4 Reasons Why BET Is An Embarrassment To Black People

1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.

This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader.
2. BET is not black entertainment television. It does not represent the views and ideals of the millions of Blacks in the United St…

The Light Skin Complex

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh...
Why do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance. See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo Answers Poster
I have grown to accept that many African-Americans don't have a genuine desire to learn or embrace their history and heritage. I have become accustom to one's “Blackness” in America being more so defined by their clothes and vernacu…

Black Salvage Blog of the Month: "Fed Up"

I would like to present to Black Salvage readers the first regular segment to appear on the site, "Blog of the Month". The intent of these monthly pieces is quite simple really; to provide awareness of many of the great blogs and sites out there relevant to our focus. [Below is a sample of the type of pictures that appear on this month's "Blog of the Month].


The first "Black Salvage Blog of The Month" recipient is author of the thoughtfully racist web log "Fed Up", which is home to dozens of anti-black writings(here is a link, http://intolerant.wordpress.com). The author, who goes by the pen name "Intolerant" has been writing about his love of hating people of the African diaspora since November of 2005. Stories on the blog range from jokes to serious pieces on the all the supposed ills of black people in the author's opinion.

Before the comments questioning my reasoning for entertaining such a blog come in, let me first ask you t…
