I suppose the whole reason for starting this ridiculous thread is this quote:

{As open as he is about his difficult childhood or broken marriage, there are topics he won’t touch. Comedians have feasted on President Donald Trump, lampooning everything from his comb-over to his fractured syntax, but Hart won’t pile on. His act eschews politics.

“When you jump into that political realm you’re alienating some of your audience,” he says. “The world today, it’s really not a laughing matter. It’s serious. I don’t want to draw attention to things I don’t have nice things to say about.”}


Take a hint? If politics aren't Kevin Hart's thing that's fine. But:

1. This is a political board.

2. We live in a time where apparently a lot of people are misinformed about some pretty important things. People like John Oliver at least fills in some of the gaps in a way that's both educational and entertaining.

3. Nobody is forcing you to watch anything.

I love Hart. He's funny as ****. But Colbert, Maher, and Oliver are not only funny, they are also trying to make America great again.

Yes, being political is really hurting late night comedian's bottom line

If you're confident about your political stances, you'll also laugh at the absurdity of it all.

It's like being upset that Lewis Black or Dave Chappelle are social commentary comedians.

What has happened to the ability to laugh at oneself? To take a joke made at ones' own expense? There's precious little of that ability at the White House today, and that sentiment has seeped down to supporters as well. It's actually a bit amusing, and ironic, that the people who delight in called liberals "snowflakes" are so fragile themselves.

The OP reminds me of a cousin I was Facebook friends with.
Constant complaining about not wanting politics mixed in with their entertainment, etc. but also effusive praise whenever any celebrity talks about their faith or guys like Jon Voight and Scott Baio 'trigger snowflakes' by 'telling it like it is' or Kid Rock runs for Senate. Complaints about how awards shows shouldn't be politicized, but how the girl who wore the MAGA dress to the Grammys is a 'great American hero.'

I'll take the hit on this one and say that the majority of Kevin Hart's material is pablum. His physicality and delivery make him funny - he is good - and he doesn't want to endanger his appeal to the masses by doing political humor. That's fine, but nothing he should be applauded for. There's nothing brave about shying away from offending your customers as a stand-up.

So essentially your argument is that "Political comedians, rather than embracing the essence of what they do, should be more like Kevin Hart". What a sad world comedy would be if everyone tried and failed to do what Hart does.

Chappelle even does a bit about how much his son likes Hart in his most recent special, complimenting his ability while also subtly jabbing at his populist appeal.

See, I find this line of thinking concerning. No, they're not. They're doing it for money and this is what sells. They are not crusaders on an epic quest to restore the Republic to greatness. They are entertainers peddling their wares in the way that will generate them the most money. This whple "comedians are the way forward" thing deeply bothers me, and it has ever since people started saying things like "I get my news from Jon Stewart!" That's not something to be proud of.

Bill Maher, for example, is not a smart man. He is an anti-vaxxer and holds other deeply dangerous and un-scientific beliefs regarding medical science. You may like his political takes, but he's not working to make America great again. He has plenty of ******** beliefs of his own that are loathsome.

Colbert was never a political comic prior to The Colbert Report. His "Strangers With Candy" era stuff was much more absurdist and even on the Daily Show he was mostly playing a buffoon. When he took over Letterman's spot he wasn't gelling doing what he was trying to do (more traditional late night stuff, which is what he claimed to want), so he became more political because that's what sells.

These guys aren't sages or altruists or cultural guides. They're money makers looking to make money.
