As a comic I’ve no huge issues to make with comedians that go at stuff from the right. If I don’t like it I move on. Simple. Surely that should be the rule on all of it. But I did have this conversation with a posh old lady recently that really made me laugh….
OLD LADY: “Why is it that all comedians are on the left? I’m a Tory and would like to see more right wing comedians.”
ME: “Well there are conservative comedians nowadays. And if you think not so long ago lots of comedians were Tories or on the right. Just look at Jim Davidson and Bernard Manning.”
OLD LADY: “Yes but they were horrible.”
ME “Yeah I know. I wonder why that was.”
