Coming Monday, Shecky Greene vs. Gilbert Gottfried.
Shecky calls into Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast to hash out an old dispute. Check out an exclusive sneak peek of the episode here. You can hear the full podcast on Monday 10/20 on: https://soundcloud.com/gilbertgottfried
Gilbert Gottfried is incredibly funny and an original and a one of a kind comedienne. He should be in more movies and he should be on a sitcom. Audiences love him.
The public should be more offended by unending wars and how their tax dollars are abused and misused, political corruption and how school curricula have been so dumbed down that kids reading, math and science scores are lower and lower. Being offended by Gilbert jokes should be way down on the complaints list of the mass populace.
Clean humor is dead as far as I am concerned. SNL is below disgusting, the Comedy Central Roast is below the content of an out house. The new humor is "Who can get the most offensive" and cause the most headlines. Why does it take talent to be just out and out nasty. It's not funny but the liberals Hollywood and their sickening push to convince the young that what they decide is normal. The Modern Family program is so far from modern its completely crazy. The graduating classes from our so called educational institutes have succeed in being convinced what ever the Hollywood left and Liberal teachers is the real norm.
Over 56,000 men and women were killed in the Vietnam War. Every one of us knows someone or has a family member that was killed during the war. How many of you out their know of a gay couple adopting a baby or getting married.? But according to the liberal left and Hollywood propaganda there is one on every other block in the US. You do the math, it would mean that over 56,000 gay couples have adopted a baby. No way this has happened or will happen.
Yes, some dirty jokes are really funny and I have told and laughed at a lot of them in my life. But there is a time and place for everything. Nobody thinks that when you use vile and disgusting language in public its always funny. The "F" bomb is now the norm even in elementary classrooms these days. I have heard an chastised teachers in the teachers lounge that I will not put up with that kind of talk in my presence, but then I am called old fashion or a dinosaur. I tell them I have morals, I have scruples, I have pride in myself, and I have a vocabulary that rises above the gutter.
Gilbert has a right to say anything he wants but he doesn't have the right to force it on and unexciting public.
I don't like sensors and I don't like book burning but I do believe in common sense. To offend can be funny at times but you have to consider the source of the person that thinks its OK all the time.
Over 65,000 adopted children by same sex couples in the US and counting. 16,000 in California alone. Looks like Modern Family is become more typical than you thought.
Sometimes people that were once great comedians become completely irrelevant and disconnected over time. I don't care how funny he once was, he is acting like a baby and censoring other comics. He blows, and doesn't deserve to be in the Friars. Bye, loser.
I don't think Shecky was actually disgusted by a joke from Gilbert, more from the fact that Gilbert hasn't changed a joke in his act for the past 20 years.
The funniest thing about Gilbert's 911 jokes is that the crowd's response compelled him to launch into one of the few recorded performances of "The Aristocrats," (told in Gilbert's inimitable style) which in turn helped spawn the documentary of the same name.
Someone posted earlier that this was one of the jokes. Obviously it has not been confirmed.
"Daughter asks father to borrow the keys to the car. Father says you know what to do. He unzips his pants and the daughter gives him oral sex and says that he tastes like sh*t. Father says, :Oh I forgot, your brother asked for the car this morning"
He then starts explaining the joke to the audience in graphic detail in case they did not get it. That was the clean joke."
@ScottStuit That's an old one of his. He just did his "regular" stuff. Gilbert hasn't written a new joke in years. He didn't even see Shecky walk out, and Greene even said it was his general language.
The real story is Shecky Greene is old and crazy. Listening to him on Gilbert's podcast supports this.
@DonnieFrankBreach The writer doesn't know how to use a comma in the article's title, so I'd say no.
Gilbert has his brand of comedy and those that hire him or have him speak should know what they're getting. The Friar's Club is known for they're pushing the envelope comedy.
I recently switched on Raw Dog and heard Gilbert do what might be the most blunt joke I've ever heard. Don't try and stop me if you've heard it before, it's too short. Apologies if it's not word for word:
How do you get a faggot to fuck a woman? Fill her cunt with shit.
I, on occasion, simultaneously laugh and say, "holy shit." This was one of those occasions.
@Punk0 Actually, the punchline to that joke is even worse and way more visceral.
It's "shit in her cunt."
Because then you have that image of someone shitting into a cunt. And then fucking it!
@E @Punk0 Two different people silly. Even worse.
