Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on November 27, 2023, 11:40:20 AMLast year I saw a fella at Andrew O'Neill's comedy club. I can't seem to find his name anywhere. He started out getting the audience to throw grapes which he caught in his mouth and he also did some Spanish guitar stuff. When he finally spoke, one of the first things he said was, "I'm Palestinian! I'm not anti-semitic."

Quote from: Mr Banlon on February 01, 2024, 04:26:34 PMThere was an episode from the original run of Spitting Image in the mid-80s with a sketch where they were talking about a country with worst human-rights abuses in the World. The insinuation was they were talking about the (then) South African apartheid government. The 'switcheroo' at the end was that they were actually talking about Israel.
QuoteSoho Theatre is built on the Dean Street site where the West End Great Synagogue used to stand, and still displays a mizrach – the plaque traditionally placed on the east wall of a Jewish building – commemorating that history.
Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on February 12, 2024, 03:39:16 PMThanks @lazybones I was hoping someone would be able to provide more context and it's great you were there and I agree comedians need protecting. There's been so much blacklisting and piling on from genocide enablers even before this. I think there are a couple of typos you might want to check? eg "Also important to say that once did he saying about Jewish people or Israel."
Quote from: Steve Faeces on February 12, 2024, 02:11:14 PMThis is such a weird addition to the end of that Chortle article.I mean, how is this relevant in any way?
Quote from: Snrub on February 12, 2024, 11:26:57 PMAt the risk of sounding like my Dad talking about anything sort of modern, the state of "journalism" on Chortle is absolute dogshit at times. They frequently add these snide bits of detail that other sites wouldn't because they can't keep their opinions to themselves. If you want to post your irrelevant opinions on what's happening in comedy join a forum like the rest of us, don't put it in your news articles.Thanks @lazybones for your really detailed and thoughtful update too
Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on February 12, 2024, 02:03:17 PMAt least one comedian has some pro-Palestine (alongside pro-Ukraine) stuff in his show, and it's led to an incident that reflects badly on him and on Chortle. https://www.chortle.co.uk/news/2024/02/12/54978/paul_currie_in_antisemitism_storm?rssCurrie fucked up massively if the incident went down as described. Chortle has chosen a clickbait tweet description that portrays it as the audience member being targeted for being Jewish. Does Chortle have form for being shit in this area? Then they quote GB News' Josh fucking Howie who's taking the opportunity to make it about himself. Wouldn't be surprised if this leads BBC news in 2 days' time.
Quote from: lazybones on February 12, 2024, 03:09:07 PMPaul Currie is sweet clown and must be protected at all costs.

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on February 13, 2024, 10:52:46 PMI really don't want to say anything more about Currie as I wasn't there to witness it, but the Arts Council's new policy is fucking horrendous, the threat that a venue could lose funding because of something that they had no idea might take place is beyond appalling.
Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on February 13, 2024, 10:45:50 PMChortle and Soho Theatre now happy to just go ahead and call Currie antisemitic. This is scary stuff. https://x.com/sohotheatre/status/1757495584586649721?s=20
