Just finished watching. Super funny stuff and it tackles the current day subject matter even more Bluntly than Chappelle did. Way better than his last special, which I felt was probably the worst one he's done.

This one was closer to classic Bill Burr. I wouldn't put it up there with his very best material but it's a great special and like Dave's special it's letting people laugh at the absurdity of our current times in a way they really need to.

Just watched it. Fucking hilarious. I liked it better than Chapelle's special which I also thought was amazing. Lefties are gonna HATE IT. he comes at them right from the beginning.
I came back here to post the same thing. I laughed at this way more than Chapelle’s special and that was amazing too

One of the all-time greats. Watched two of his specials on a flight home this weekend, I can't wait to put this one on.

It looks like many comedians don't give a flying fuck anymore, they're now openly attacking the woke lunatics and honestly that's the best strategy against these people. The moment they see hesitation from you that's when they start attacking, when you directly call them out though on their bullshit they can't do shit because they'll prove you right.

There's no way it hasn't been coordinated between him and Chappelle. I'm just surprised that Wokeflix was happy to be the platform to host it. I wonder if there are any more coming... maybe Ricky Gervais? Rogan?

Lmao it started out 🔥, I made it half way before I had to stop.

I worry about you guys and your insistence on being anti sjw, it's all you want which is weird, and you'll put people on a pedestal for it. It shouldn't bother you that much.

Anyway, I can't wait to watch the rest though.

As a socialist I have plenty of reasons to be bothered, these morons not only have poisoned political discourse and distracted from real issues like growing inequality and poverty, vast corruption and the hijacking of our democracies but they've also made a mockery of the left by pretending to represent us and using their journalist and tech industry buddies to solidify that narrative. I have no idea why conservatives hate them though, these imbeciles are the biggest advertisement for rightwing causes in decades, rightwingers should be thanking them.

Not a socialist, but I agree with you on all your points. The current "issues" that are being trumpeted by these extremists, who seem to be controlling the direction of the entire political left, have pretty much buried all the real issues like you mentioned, wealth inequality, and growing corporate influence and power over people's lives.

It's good to see some mainstream entertainment that doesn't feel like it's trying to subtly indoctrinate me into a cult. I hope this trend continues, I'm pretty tired of every movie, game, and television show all feeling like they were made by the same people with the same opinions.

So this guy is a comedian or ... ? Pretty weak.

Also, what's up with the sound guy laughing?
Weak? Hahahahaha yeah right!

That shit was hilarious but looks like your sense of humour is nowhere to be found. OOORRRR you’re a woke snowflake that was offended the whole show. Pick one

I didnt understand what you meant by “the party switch”.

Edit: so, I was hoping for some clarification, if you wouldn’t mind indulging me.

It was a pretty good special. I think it was pretty average for Bill. Of course, he's one of my favorites so it's hard to top some of his material for me.

The parties switched some time around the civil rights era so when you think about it all the yucky shit like slavery is the Republicans’ fault



That Doesn’t explain to me how Repub’s are responsible for slavery.

So, I’m gonna need some receipts. To avoid detailing the thread, would you mind PM’ing me if you’re interested in continuing this conversation?

IMO it’s more accurate to say conservatives were perpetuating slavery and liberals were abolitionists. At the time, Republicans were the liberal party. Lincoln was anything but a “state’s rights!!!” small government conservative (though the modern GOP wants to claim to be “the party of Lincoln”)

Wait
I don’t understand? You’re pro SJW?

People like Jerry Seinfeld can’t (won’t) perform at colleges because of the annoying Liberal Arts Schools and their SJW mentality.

Life isn’t one big liberal arts campus.
So when comedians like Chappelle and Burr attack said liberal thought and risk their careers, it should be applauded (or as you say, “put on a pedestal”)

idk r/politics told me there was a party switch and therefore the modern democrats can’t be held responsible for their party’s history (which, may I remind you, they are on the right side of)

I'd never seen that Philly rant. Fucking hell. Looking forward to this special. He's had a few YouTube shorts up about playing different cities in the UK as a run up to this.

It's comedy man, it should be funny and ironic. If it's funny it's applauded, but if all you want to do is further your political message or have ammo for your culture war, you're just handing out participation trophies and looking sad while you do it. We don't need that, we need good comedy. Seinfeld should grow some more balls to you know.

I agree with most your points, but most of what I see from the left is the harping on equality and climate change all day too, I don't think that they sacrificed that.

It was very funny. By 90's standards the edginess was mild. Nothing controversial said or done. It's crazy how sensitive clown world is to comedy.
Long are gone the days of Bill Hicks and George Carlin levels of irreverence. Those were the days. The left back then loved them now the "woke" left would cancel them in two seconds because it hurts their sensitivities.

Yeah equality like: let's change the word "guys" people cause it's oppressing me!!! and let's invent more hastags to make it easier to calculate my oppression victim score!

Meanwhile they (at least the vocal ones and the ones guiding the discourse) are completely oblivious to the real economical roots of inequality while living in over-expensive corporate cities like San Francisco, supporting corporations that steal people's information and manipulate news just because they put up the LGBT flag up every once in a while or give them free stuff during pride parades, eating artisanal pizza made with quinoa and avocado cultivated by exploited poor people in third world countries. They "supported equality" by getting behind Hillary because she had a vagina while Hillary was a warmonger who supported, among other shit, a right-wing coup in Honduras which ended up giving enough power to corporations to murder actually important female environmental leaders like Berta Cáceres and many others.

The left has become their worst enemy because they're a bunch of ignorant spoiled hipsters with too much free time. I really can't stand these retards. They can use those terms like "equality" and "environment" but those are empty and superficial like pretty much everything they stand behind nowadays.

Saw his show in Manchester which was a build up to the special, it was a really good set but he needed to drop the whole American impersonating Dumb Yanks to an English (/British) crowd. It's always been a cheap and weak method to get laughs, and he's better than that.

Being pro / anti-SJW isn't the aim. I would agrue more than half of the people on GAF are more toward the side of SJW stances than not. It's extremitisim that's, personally, I am "anti". Cancelling people because you disagree with their viewpoint. Censoring things that you don't personally like nor support. These are extremist views and forms of control.

Unpopular opinion here but yeah I agree.
Probably. Most people would say that they're just more on the side of justice for all. Which is what everyone should be. I take the Big Boss approach of it. In MGSV, Big Boss was questioned about the Les Enfant Terribles, in which he didn't see his clones as his "sons", but he rather would treat them as equal human beings. I've always had that mindset with woman, trans, gays, queers, ect...they're human. They're trying to figure out or have figured out who they are.

"Treat him like a human being, just another person"

“Chapter one: How to tell if the dick tastes presidential”

Damn. The dude is clearly left in his politics and THAT is what he said about Michelle Obama. 20 Minutes straight of ripping on third wave feminism.

I’m about halfway through and it’s pretty funny so far. He nails a lot of truths and dresses them up with comedy. Looking forward to finishing it up after dinner.

There is but only because of Bernie Sanders but his message keeps getting diluted by these absolute clowns that btw in their majority hate Bernie supporters. Even twitter politicians as I call them like Ocasio Cortez that supposedly support him are sabotaging him with their stupidity and obsession with idpol.
