Dave Chappelle's comedy is usually highly offensive - I love it!

Amy Schumer is not funny. I am not sure why she would be on show with real comedic giants.

Rather, some people are highly offended by his comedy. I don't find it offensive at all - I find it well thought out and intelligent!

Weird, she's made millions and millions of dollars, sells out stadiums, and she had a TV show that ran for multiple seasons. All as a comedian. How the hell did she convince everyone to put out that money if she's not funny and not a comedic giant?!?!

You can say the same for some Youtube and Tiktok stars who actually make more money than her.

You still have not proven that she is funny or that she can be considered on the same level as the other comedians at this event.

A comedian who has made millions off comedy specials, sells out arenas for her stand-up, and got a comedy show re-signed for multiple seasons. On top of this story right here, were one of the greatest comedians of all time (Chappelle) is bringing her on his tour. You think he'd do that if he didn't think she's funny? Or do you think Dave Chappelle is one to sell out for money?

Iff this is not proof, then there isn't any proof that would satisfy you. Literally millions of people think she's funny. I don't need to prove it, their dollars already have.

You don't have to think she's funny. Her humor doesn't even really make me laugh much. But there is zero doubt that she is officially a funny person, whether any internet poster thinks so or not, as not only the masses, but also the masters (Chappelle, Joe Rogan) have declared so as well.

Actually, there are a number of reasons why a person can be rich and famous celebrity, and it does not necessarily have anything to do with talent. She might have had connections. (ie. "Schumer")

Also, this is not a Chappelle show or tour. He is just one of the biggest names on the event, so your proof is not really true.

Dave Chappelle - Absolutely an original and relentlessly, thought-provoking “Genius”.

A present day George Carlin, IMHO.

Amy Schumer? Well, possibly a big ‘joke thief’.

And, her “success”? - One poster answered with elements from their own question:

- “How the hell did she convince everyone to put out …” -

minus one, or two extraneous words.

You either like pizza or you don’t. It’s a preference thing. Same with comedy. You can’t prove it fools.

Raising funds and celebrating the recovery of New York, sport. It’s in the article.

Great city. Up there with London, Rome, Barcelona and Paris as one of the world’s great cities. New Yorkers are actually very warm people in my experience despite the reputation for coldness.

If you haven’t been there, I recommend it very highly.

Chapelle is the best, love the guy and Stewart is funny as well, but Chapelle is just down-to-earth real and just tells it like it is. The man has been through a lot and I wish this true artist nothing but the best and I hope and pray he offends a lot of people.

It's interesting how JT posters feel comforable claiming Schumer isn't funny, when so many of literally the greatest comedians out there say differently. She is looked on with in respect in the comedy community, one only needs to listen to a few comedians' podcasts to hear everyone speaking of her with respect. And this is in comedy, which is one of the purest meritocracies out there, where you're either good, or you fail. And she's one of the 1%ers in comedy.

But yes, the unfunny people on JT know better than the experts in comedy right? Armchair comedians must be funnier than this proven comedian, right?

Yeah, she is not funny to me.

I also do not believe that you have a clue what the greatest comedian really think of her or which JT posters are funny or not funny.

I have seen that different posters have explain why she is not funny or at least not authentic or original with the stolen jokes. I have not seen where you have shown why she really is funny.

Resulting to name calling is a clear sign of a losing argument!

Yeah, she is not funny to me.

Now that’s fair. I don’t find her humor very funny either - I prefer a different style. But my tastes are mine, and humor is subjective. Millions love her, and my opinion doesn’t change that.

I do in fact. I listen to the podcasts of a lot of the top comics out there, and whenever she comes up in conversation it’s mentioned how funny she is. I mean, Pete Davidson just added her to his show. He’s one of the top comics out there, and it’s his show. He’s not going to put her on his show if he doesn’t think she’s funny. Just think about that.

or which JT posters are funny or not funny.

I can tell you exactly which ones don’t know how to evaluate whether a comedian is objectively funny or not.

LOL! Now Pete Davidson is one of the comedic giants, too because his opinion supports your opinion.

You are grasping at straws!

Or do you think Dave Chappelle is one to sell out for money?

Most definitely. He's made fun of himself over doing it too!

“When you stopped watching it, they called me,” Chappelle, 47, said in the clip. “And I got my name back, and I got my license back, and I got my show back, and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”

*That was an issue of the network replaying his old shiz and him not getting paid for it.I would hardly call that someone selling themself for money.**

He told an amazing story of betrayal and how HBO used him and broke their own contract. One thing Chapelle is not and that’s a sellout. He could have all the money in the world and rejected all of that to perform in small intimate venues. Now with a new and legit contract, he looks like he’s coming back. Hope so, the guy is so down to Earth and not a phony like a lot of comedians out there. George Carlin was another one. The things he used to say about big government and people laughed and that all came true 25 years later, amazing how right the man was.

No, he's a top comedic giant because he made it into Saturday Night Live cast, one of the hardest comedy troupes there are to get into, he has made comedy movies, and he's done stand-up. In otherwords, he's been proven as a top comedian.

Oh sorry, did I destroy your narrative by proving that someone at the top of comedy finds Schumer smart? My bad.

Or do you think Dave Chappelle is one to sell out for money?

What did he sell out there? He wasn't making any money off the royalties, and he put his foot down, until he did. What did he sell out?

The things he used to say about big government and people laughed and that all came true 25 years later, amazing how right the man was.

I don't know if you missed the parts where he has criticized your team and supports BLM, but it's quite weird to see you supporting him.

I don't care if he supports conservative causes or not, the guy is funny, that's the only thing I care about.

but it's quite weird to see you supporting him.

No, I like comedy, and the fact that he shoves a middle finger at the canceled woke culture and the powers that be in this new identity politics, social justice warrior cancer thing is extremely refreshing. Laughing is good, we need more of it and the SJW bunch should embrace it, everything is funny and you should be able to laugh at anything you want, no limits and if people get offended by it, oh, well.....

This is why I have always loved the guy.

LOL! The only person who thinks "Pete Davidson" (C-rated comedian) is the top of comedy for being on SNL 2021 is you and his mother whose house he still lives because he does not make enough to truly support himself.

Her because she is showing unconditional love. And you because you are just making things ups to pretend to be correct.

Ha Ha! Try again!

Mate, you are not even attempting to make sense, anymore. I don't think that you have destroyed anyone's narrative. If anything you have strengthened the other sides point. You have also confirmed your lack of knowledge on the topic with that Pete Davidson point!

Um SNL has produced the top comedians out there, and has an extremely hard process to get through, for a tiny number of spots, and only the top rising comedians get into it. What have you accomplished in comedy boomer?

Oops, sorry, there I am narrative destroying again.

Pete Davidson is not and never has been a top comedian at all. SNL has not been considered a top comedy show in decades. Your whole point about him being top and selecting Amy Schumer is moot. They are both B and C class comedians at best.

The only reason he is doing this charity event is because he started the event. If a group of only real top level comedians were creating this event with only top level comics, they more than likely would not select Pete Davidson unless it involved mental issues.

Your whole argument is weak and running in circles.

Oh, you don't get it. That's like saying the person at the bottom of the Olympics isn't a top athlete. Getting into SNL means he's a top comedian period. Then you can rank him within the ranks of SNL. But you're like the judges on Top Chef acting disgusted because someone dared undercook the rice on a meal that the majority of the planet could never pull off with a recipe and lessons.

It has not been considered a top comedy show in decades.

You clearly don't listen to comedians very much, as it is well acknowledged to be the top of the game amongst comedians.

Your whole point about him being top and selecting Amy Schumer is moot.

Says the dude on the internet. I think I'll take the words of the professionals mate. You know, the ones who actually know what comedy is, how hard it is to do, and how hard it is to get into and stay on SNL.

And to be clear, I don't even like or watch the show, nor have I ever, other than random clips here and there. It's not my kind of humor or comedy. I'm speaking purely based on the comments of professional comments of those in the comedy community.
