QuoteBritish comedy legend John Cleese will be exploring cancel culture in a new documentary series for Channel 4.The series – which is to be titled John Cleese: Cancel Me – will see the Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star "explore why a new 'woke' generation is trying to rewrite the rules on what can and can't be said".Throughout the series, the comedian will talk to a variety of people – including some famous faces who claim to have been 'cancelled' and others who have campaigned against comedians and programmes – to ask if it is possible to create comedy without causing offence.

QuoteCleese stated that having recently watched the discussion again he "was astonished, first of all, at how stupid [the two members of the Church] were, and how boring the debate became". He added: "I think the sad thing was that there was absolutely no attempt at a proper discussion – no attempt to find any common ground

Quote from: Thursday on August 23, 2021, 06:11:51 PMI'm not. I'll find it very easy not to watch. You don't need to watch shit things just so you can say they're shit. You can just call them shit anyway.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on August 23, 2021, 05:55:49 PMI feel bad for all those cancelled comedians like Louis CK (still touring to good houses); Chris D'Elia (still touring); Jeff Ross (still on TV); Bryan Callen (still touring and doing his podcast), and all those cancelled film people like Woody Allen (still making movies) and Roman Polanski (still making movies). It's almost as if "cancelling" has no power at all, but rich boring old fucks like Cleese won't stop until all we peasants stop expressing any opinion other than "keep feeding us this slop".
Quote from: jobotic on August 23, 2021, 05:37:40 PMDo Channel 4 think this will save them from the Tory culture war?
Quote from: bgmnts on August 23, 2021, 05:22:14 PMInterestingly, in the Almost the Truth documentary, it was Cleese who apparently had an issue with some jokes and made clear there were some lines in taste and offensiveness, whereas Jones and Gilliam thought there were no sacred cows.So bit weird. But to be fair at this point if you're old and white and not whinging about pc gone mad are you even an old white cunt?
