Whatever happened to comedy?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’ve always been a sucker for the late-night comedy shows. Watched Carson forever, and Letterman too. Generally found Dave a little more to my taste than Leno. Arsenio had a really good show too. Could never figure why the plug got pulled on it.

One thing you could count on back in the day was a bit of light entertainment that might make you laugh on a good night. You could settle in the chair, maybe a little bummed out by your day, and you’d walk away feeling somehow better about the world.

Not anymore.

I mean take a look at Jimmy Kimmel. No matter how depressed you are when he comes on, I guarantee you’ll feel worse when it’s over.

And what’s up with guys like Colbert and all the sophomoric homophobia they think is okeedokey as long as it’s aimed at Trump and Putin? Come-on dude, the “cock-holster” vein of humour wasn’t all that funny in the high-school locker-room when I first encountered it fifty years ago – up your game!
