Listen to previews from the album on the Beatport player below.
Here’s my take on this whole thing:
I think a comedy show is a comedy show and if you argue with a comedian, the comedian might say things you don’t like. Even if he doesn’t particularly believe what he is saying. Why? Cause he does it for a living. He’s fast on his feet and quick with words. He’ll humiliate you with a joke that’ll be dressed up as an insult and he’ll make it his mission to make people laugh at you and then… You’ll get angry. And you’ll accuse him of racism or some other societal tabu. Only as a desperate measure to get the “crowd” his “fans” on your side… Bullshit. There’s real life and there’s stage life. Anyone with a little bit of media coverage or stage time will tell you that. Specially in comedy. Tons of comedians have made careers out of making fun of the differences between minorities. I’m not saying it’s good or bad…. But….
You ask, “Why does it work?” and the answer is simple…
Because people buy the tickets. People buy the DVDs. People stream the videos on Netflix. That’s America. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
I was born in Mexico and I take no offense by what he said. In fact, I personally think he never stops being funny during the course of the video. But that’s just my personal opinion.
