SELF-CENSORSHIP

Hollywood in Toto:

YAKOV SMIRNOFF COMPARES ‘CANCEL CULTURE’ TO USSR.

The Russia native came to American to speak his mind. Now, he fears he may no longer do just that.

Comedian Yakov Smirnoff told a killer routine during his early stand-up days, a gag with a kernel of truth behind it. 

The Russian comic started his comedy career in his homeland. When he came to America in the late 1970s he could finally say what he wanted to say without punishment.

That wasn’t what he experienced back home, something he shared with his early U.S. audiences. [More at the link above]

DESUS & MERO: WE SELF CENSOR TO AVOID CANCEL CULTURE.

This “unearthed” video shows the rising stars bowing to PC pressure. Here’s the problem with that approach.


Showtime stars Desus & Mero are Bronx tough … on the surface.
The hosts of their self-titled talk show bring “street swagger” to their shtick, according to Newsday. “Desus & Mero,” which airs 11 p.m. EST Monday nights, mixes pop culture, politics, sports and more with a heady blast of humor. The Bronx comedy bombers honed their chops on their Bodega Boys podcast. Their Showtime series proved a hit with critics when it debuted earlier this year.
So far, the comics haven’t been pulled over by the PC Police for any jokes. No one is threatening to “cancel” their shtick.
And the pair knows why.
Their rationale, captured earlier this year but unearthed by the New York Post’s Jon Levine, is frightening, sad and ultimately misguided. [More at the link above]

  1. Archie Bunker & Johnny Carson get funnier with every passing year. Thank GOD for re-runs; ‘woke’ comedians are as funny as a cancer diagnosis in your teens…

  2. People in this country, especially the younger ones who have never been taught History, have never done without, have never been abroad to see what life is like somewhere else, yet consider themselves “woke”, really need to listen to people like Smirnoff who have experienced Socialism/Communism and all the stark totalitarian control that goes with it! I don’t know how good of a comedian this guy is, but he is a good ambassador for Freedom!

  3. I loved Yakov. Always looked forward to him on the Smothers Bros. Truly funny. Went on the cruise ship circuit which is why nobody heard from him.
