Pocket Ninja: I'm not sure whether Carlos Mencia or Daniel Tosh is the more worthless comedian, but it angers me on some level that I even need to consider the question at all.


you are on my favorites list for a reason. this comment is not it.

I drive around all day listening to the satellite comedy channels and tosh is easily in the upper 20 percentile. his style is not a copy of anyone's(of who i am aware at least), and you can tell by hearing the same joke in different recordings that he works and works on material to get it just perfect for that style. he basically grinds a joke down untill there is just one person left laughing. its way better than the mencia "hey remember this thing that mexicans do!?" or the cook "hey, remember this thing that everyone 30-35 remembers?!". its not that cook or mencia are never funny, their styles just suck.

also, listen to enough stand-up and you will hear every offensive word and act. sometimes its hilarious, sometimes its not. its not that rape is funny, but sometimes someone can make it into a joke, which is funny.

FTFA: Which means that a huge percentage of our country thinks rape jokes are funny...because they think the act of physically hurting and sexually dominating a woman against her will is funny

Know how I know you don't understand comedy?

Interesting thread. Mixing the typical no-humor Tosh hating farkers with the pro-rape, anything goes farkers.

Who will win? Who will die of cognitive dissonance. Stay and find out.

astoreth: Alrighty, I'm genuinely curious: what makes Tosh worth defending and Michael Richards not? Both are massive douches, both made stunningly offensive comments to hecklers, but one got put through the wringer and lost what little career he had left and the other has an army of fans and colleagues defending him. I'm not saying Richards didn't deserve what he got, but it seems the situations are very similar with very different reactions.

/Personally, I think they both suck, but that's just me.


Richards lost his shiat and went on a long combative tirade that was caught on video. Tosh made a quick quip that was well recieved by the audience that heard it in context and then continued with his performance. Also Tosh is at the height of his career and has plenty of credibility with fans and other comedians. Richards was at the end of a long descent and had pissed off plenty of people with unhinged poor treatment of others.

Mainly its the video. Though in this case I suspect the video would be helpul to Tosh.

I've been meaning to attempt to gauge the outrage over the Tosh story compared to the Sandusky trial and conviction over Tumblr. See how many people are more outraged at a rape joke over actual rape. It'll be fun! *pull out bottle of rum* ...pray for me.
 
2012-07-13 07:31:58 PM  
As a female, I personally don't care about the joke; mainly, because as a Jewish female, I've heard way worse.

Now was it funny? Not really. Was I offended? Nope.

FTFA:
The woman, who recounted the unnerving experience on her blog, immediately left the show frightened

Wrong and wrong.

a) She told her FRIEND about it, and the friend blogged. Making this a second-hand story that has been denied by those present.

b) The original blog posting states quite clearly that the offended party stayed to the end of the show - she did NOT leave the show frightened.

So to you, Piper Weiss of Shine - you're a farking liar. Go fark yourself, you lying bint. And you're farking fat.

That was hilarious. His next bit about Frogger was great too.

"My brother used to be awesome at Frogger. Which is ironic, because last week he got hit by a car. It's not really the same thing...you don't actually use a joystick to move around...well, he does now."

On first look, while there are some good Tumblr posts about the Freeh Report and Sandusky and Penn State, they were mostly falling on deaf ears. Most serious posts had a few likes but never into double digit amounts of notes. However the JOKES about it, namely the MAD fake movie poster of "Ped" were very prevalent and dominated the tag. ...hmm...

Could that be because he was convicted on all counts he was charged with (minus the couple that were thrown out). Why would there be outrage over that?

There's still outrage at the board and the release of the Freeh Report makes it still a relevant topic. Granted, yes, not as relevant as it was upon initial news, but there are still rampant amounts of coverup by officials that are still (1) alive and (2) unpunished

salvador.hardin: That's so much more offensive than what he said. He said wouldn't it be ironic if this girl got gang raped right now. The humor comes from the fact that the situation he is describing would never happen, and it would be a big fark you from the universe if something so hurtful and impossible happened right then.


Uh-huh. And if you did not think he was joking and in fact serious, then how do you think you would be interpreted?

You go into a bar you've heard good things about but never been to, and you're bringing a girl along. Everything is going fine, when some big guy stars making jokes about guys being raped. Disgusting, graphic jokes. Before you can get out of there the girl with you says "That's not funny".

There is dead silence. Then the big guy turns to you and says "You know what would be ironic? If five of the guys here raped your boyfriend right now".

Wouldn't that be hysterical?
 
2012-07-13 08:08:38 PM  
What was the full context of that joke. What was the material she interrupted and what was it she said to heckle him. Depending on the context his remarks could be anything from confusing non-sequitor to absolutely hilarious but I won't know until I know the full context in which they were delivered.

gas giant: alwaysjaded: Anthony Jeselnik

I wasn't familiar with the guy before this thread, so I have to thank you Farkers for mentioning him.

As someone who loathes Dane Cook, I found this bit hilarious.


lol. That was pretty spot on and I've never seen that so thanks. I love stand-up and he's been on the radar for some time. Glad to see he's finally getting some recognition. If you have Amazon Prime, look for Comedy Central Presents and look for Jeselnik's special. He might have an hour long special but I guess you would have to look for a torrent of that.

2012-07-13 08:20:10 PM  

fuhfuhfuh: We get it, rape can never be funny. Unless it involves prison, or a small dick, or sports, or Dane Cook. Who wouldn't want to see Dane Cook forcibly spit roasted? Try being edgy now, douche. At least he might finally get the taste of failure out of his mouth after a tonsil washing.


Or you know, Ashton Kutcher.

Reference: Bruce Campbell, when asked who he'd like to see in an Evil Dead remake, he suggested Ashton Kutcher. Why? Because, said he to the audience, wouldn't you like to see him being raped by a tree?

Oh, golly, Bruce Campbell, hero of Fark, made a rape joke. Excuse me while I clutch my pearls and suddenly develop the vapors!

My opinion in the matter though:

1. Rape jokes can be funny.
2. You don't go to a comedy club, heckle the comic or say anything isn't funny at all and not expect to be taken down, Thor's Hammer-style, for it.
3. Comics insulting people is hardly new. So as I hear Groucho Marx used to call up people in the middle of the night just to insult them. And have you seen the old-style Friar's Club roasts? I mean really, some of the best comics are the most brutal.
4. All that said, what Tosh said wasn't funny. It was over the line. He didn't have to go there. Maybe that's the sort of thing he says to his friends (he claims that he's pretty tame compared to other people he knows), but sometimes you just gotta leave it between friends. (I've heard - I think - Marc Maron even reason with an audience member saying "I could call you the c-word, but that never ends well")

Made a note of it and thank you. I got Prime recently so I'm going through all the Comedy Central Presents right now. It's about 50/50. Some good ones and some really horrible ones.

Most of the horrible ones are 30 minutes of some variation of "What's the deal with airline food?" GAG!
 
2012-07-13 08:32:00 PM  
The lesson: Don't heckle. Most standups on Tosh's level have been doing this for years and have dealt with drunken idiots on a regular basis. Wit, wordplay, sarcasm, and obscenity are how they make their living. You're not going to put a sick burn on them, and more often than not, they're going to make you look like a complete farking idiot.

I'd recommend Amy Schumer (stylistically similar to Jeselnik possibly because they dated), Patton Oswalt, Louis CK, Marc Maron, Aziz Asari (who is ok), Hannibal Burress, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, and Joe Rogan.
 
2012-07-13 08:43:25 PM  
I'm offended that anyone would go see a performance artist without knowing who he or she was, then have the audacity to tell them they're not meeting your own personal standards of art.

Also, comedians are there to control the audience. If you try and take that control away, don't be surprised if they do whatever it takes to get it back.

i think that what richards did was more out of context. like Tosh is telling a joke about rape, someone gets up and says "rape isn't funny" and he responds "well if you got raped it would be funny!" It might be incredibly mean, and worth discussing if its appropriate, but at least its (shall we say) "on topic."

if he were doing a rape joke and someone gets up and says "rape isn't funny" and he responds "well you're a " and then just kept on it for 5 minutes, then its way off topic. it becomes more than just a response to a heckler and goes into the strange personal attacks territory.

I'll raise you Dane Cook.

Daniel Tosh is right at the bottom, dueling Dane Cook for second-to-last place, just under Michael Richards. Ned "Carlos Mencia" Holness is always going to be at the bottom of the list, because that exploitative, thieving, lying bastard would have to be deposed by another exploitative, lying, thieving bastard who did something on top of all that.

I'd like to beat them all to death with the corpse of Jeff Dunham.

Depends heavily on who you ask. It runs the spectrum from Tosh saying it would be ironically funny if she was raped - because she interrupted a bit about how certain subjects like rape could be funny - to Tosh saying that rape is funny and when she said it wasn't he said he hoped she was raped.

tlchwi02: i think that what richards did was more out of context.


Eh, not even that. It was more that it simply wasn't funny - it was just anger at the guy being black. Bill Hicks' HITLER HAD THE RIGHT IDEA rant had some stunningly sexist stuff in there, but it was entirely focused on offense at the heckling, rather than offense at the heckler being a woman.

Yea, I like all those except Asari. I also like Owen Benjamen, Jon Reep, Mike Birbiglia, Big Jay Oakerson, Donald Glover, Gabriel Iglesias, Pablo Francisco, Al Madrigal and Jon LaJoie. I'm sure I'm forgetting some names that aren't big timers. I wish I could remember who did the joke about Nazi ice cream. I want to say Metzegar but I would have to look it up. Oh, and whoever it was that did the joke about having a pet owl. I really need to look them up.

Wouldn't that be hysterical?


I see that you're trying to emphasize the sinister side of the comment, but your analogy just doesn't hold up. The guy in your bar isn't a celebrity I've heard of who is sitting on a stage doing his job of telling jokes which I paid for on my way in. My girlfriend in your scenario isn't standing up in the middle of someone's performance and telling them how to do their job. The core fact is the same in both cases, it is clear that no one is going to get raped. Knowing Tosh's style and physicality, I'm almost completely certain that this "concern" is completely disingenuous. If she really thought the situation was dangerous why didn't she leave. The girl was embarrassed because he finished his set and everyone else in the room kept laughing. She wrote this tumblr to get back at the guy that shut her down.

Now since you did the bad analogy thing I'm going to do the thing where I ask myself questions and answer them.

Was she supposed to feel uncomfortable? Absolutely, that's what you do to a heckler. Look up the videos, its vile stuff.
Was she apprehensive of being raped in the club? Aside from saying that she was, everything in her story suggests she wasn't.

Was what Tosh said near the line? See above

Was what Tosh said over the line?

I just don't understand how anyone thinks they can say that he is over the line from the text of the statement as relayed by the girl who claims she was offended. The people who say that it is over the line seem to, for the most part, have a problem with using the word rape in any situation that isn't direly serious (again I have to question if they didn't laugh at the Antoine Dodson video or prison jokes or what have you). People want to read it like he's staring her in the face and eye-banging her while he said it. But the statement is to the audience, and knowing his style I just don't see this coming across as any kind of threat. Since the line of propriety migrates a significant degree when you're talking about a comedian in a positively ancient comedy club dealing with a heckler, I personally don't see how it could be over the line, but I frankly don't know because I wasn't there. The only accounts of others in the audience I have heard is that the exchange and the act in total were well received by the audience. Audiences tend to turn on comedians when they go to far. On Maron's show its a very common story for comedians to share their worst "audience turned on me when I went to far with a heckler" story.

LindyJohn: The thing I like about Tosh is that he says things that are outrageous, beyond the pale, and make you uncomfortable. This sort of remark sounds just like him.

Why would you go to one of his shows, heckle him, and then NOT expect something like this to come back at you. Did the heckling woman really think she was going to publicly shame Tosh into tasteful sensitivity?


Wow, that sounds really unique. You probably think south park is hilarious.

Richards got booed and ridiculed by the audience for going to far with the heckler. You can't reverse the relevance of that exact incident in proving my precise point by imagining something different happened. And the clip has nothing to do with a heckler. I mean I see the general gist of what you're going for here, audiences can be full of bad people and they can be led down a bad path. But there's not a jew there that he's talking to or responding to. There's not a person that he's tearing down or yelling at. I just don't think its the same thing.

In any case, the reaction of the audience is at least as reliable as the account of the agreived party, and neither are very helpful in judging the situation.

If you think rape can never be funny, you're wrong. If you think all rape jokes are funny, you're wrong. Not everything that's funny is offensive to someone, and not everything that offends someone is funny. In general, too many unfunny people think being extremely offensive is some kind of shortcut to being funny. It isn't. On the other hand, if you're trying to be funny yet never offend anyone, that's not gonna work either. Simply put, if you think your offensiveness or lack thereof has any bearing on how funny you are, you probably aren't all that funny in the first place.

The Wheaton rule works here: "Don't be a dick." Well, at the very least, don't be too much of a dick. Hecklers suck, but I don't think anyone would be ok with it if the heckler was a black guy and Tosh said "wouldn't it be funny if five KKK guys came in right now and just lynched him", even if it was in context to previous jokes. If you get heckled, you go after the person, not their race, not their gender, not their orientation.

As for offensive jokes in general, there are groups that are already being shat upon by society in various ways, and if you're just adding to that pile of shiat, you aren't some brave defender of the first amendment speaking uncomfortable truths, you're just a cowardly dick that likes to kick people already down. There's enough screwed up stuff in the world to mock that you don't have to be some stereotype of "edgy."

There's not really a clear story about what happened, but I think the way Tosh apologized before it really even became viral indicates that he thinks he might have stepped over the line. Still, it's not worth the extreme repsonses everyone jumped to. But then, this is the internet, we don't do moderation.

And since everything I just wrote was boring and unfunny, I'll leave this here: Daniel Tosh Chuckles Through Own Violent Rape.

I feel the Onion is way off base on this because they've made plenty of rape jokes over the years, and been called on it repeatedly. It seems very strange they would now somehow make fun of Tosh for doing that.

Somewhat similar type of comedy, but I think May is more current. I haven't seen Pinette do anything in a while.

/Just looked up Pinette's tour schedule, seems he sticks to the NE/Canada area

Pity. We need more buffet jokes over here on the west coast. Would really help balance out the rape.

Comedians are allowed and encouraged to joke about racism, sexism, 9/11, AIDS, cancer, balding, STDs, scoliosis, asthma, murder, serial killers, suicide, sex, taxes, death, funerals, depression, mental disorder, sodamy, child porn, child rape, incest, weirdos, transgenders, leperacy, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and rape. IT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF COMEDY. SHIATY STUFF HAPPENS TO PEOPLE, I'M SORRY. That's it. Don't see comedy if you need to see a psychiatrist
