This week’s episode of the Aaron Rupar Show features comedian and writer Jay Black on his stand-up and the state of political comedy more broadly. Topics include how rising authoritarianism has made joking about politics more challenging, conservatives’ one joke and why Jay is so turned off by it, right-wingers’ difficulty to grasp what censorship is and isn’t, and much more. (“If you start screaming about your diarrhea at a Starbucks and they remove from the Starbucks, you’re not being censored.”)
We had a lot of laughs and I think you will too. Check out the audio at the top of the post, or watch the footage below via my YouTube page.
Next week’s edition will feature one of the wittiest legal commentators I know, Liz Dye, on Trump’s legal troubles — which by then may include a fresh federal indictment.
