Anthony Jeselnik. What an ass. But so right. So right. #anthonyjeselnik #comedylivingroom #lariot #donthate #cantwaitforthenextone
Chris Hardwick: I think Comedy at its core, is always offensive to someone somewhere; at its core, comedy is about - trying to deal with horrible things, and, and gaining power over those things, by trying to ridicule or laugh in the face of those horrible things. And so when people go "how could you talk about this one thing?!" and it's like, well, but you laughed at the other thing, which would have been offensive to someone else. My general - what I try to say to people, is look: when it comes to comedy - and I don't think comedy is *for* everyone - but when it comes to comedy I say, you kind of have to have this Be Offended by either Nothing or Everything sort of thing. Because it's not fair to pick and choose what it's okay to be offended by.
Anthony Jeselnik: But nobody knows that comedy's not *for* them. Everyone thinks they have a great sense of humor; most people do not. Everyone enjoys laughing. It would be like if - you were a big music fan, and you would just spend all day, you - you loved classical music, so you would spend every day writing hate mail to heavy metal bands. It would be insane to do that. People don't care about it in music that way, but in comedy, it's never 'I don't think you're funny'. It's always 'you are not funny, and here's why, I'm gonna tell you why. This thing you've dedicated your whole life to, me, just this random asshole gas station attendant, is gonna tell you why that's not funny.' And you get it constantly.
Chris Hardwick: Well it's - I think it's like what Mel Brooks said, y'know, comedy is protest - you're trying to take something *down*. And the audience is judging, like 'oh, that thing he's taking down deserved to be taken down'. Where's the balance of power? And so I think in some cases they sort of think like 'oh, you're kicking something that's already down, that's wrong, that's - injustice!' That it's a justice thing.
Anthony Jeselnik: Right, and I think that in every joke there's a victim, and if you find yourself identifying more with the victim than you do to the person telling the joke, then they won't like it.
