John Cleese: Woke People Have “Zero Sense Of Humour”; They’re Killing Comedy

“Please tell me a good ‘woke’ joke.”

Legendary British comedian John Cleese has hit out at permanently offended woke people, insisting that they have no sense of humour and are contributing to the death of comedy.

In an appearance on the Daily Beast’s The Last Laugh Podcast, Cleese noted that woke people simply do not understand the intricacies of comedy.

“There’s plenty of people who are PC now who have absolutely zero sense of humour. I would love to debate, in a friendly way, a couple of ‘woke’ people in front of an audience. And I think the first thing I would say is, please tell me a good ‘woke’ joke,” Cleese urged.

“What they don’t understand is that there’s two types of teasing,” Cleese continued, noting that “There’s really nasty teasing, which is horrible, and we shouldn’t do it, full stop. But the other type of teasing is affectionate. You can tease people hugely affectionately and it’s a bonding mechanism.”

“All humour is critical. You cannot get laughs out of perfect human beings,” Cleese continued, adding that “If you’ve got someone up on the screen who is perfect, intelligent and kind and flexible and a good person, there’s nothing funny about that. So we only laugh at people’s frailties, but that’s not cruel. You can laugh at people’s frailties in very funny and generous ways.”

Cleese was recently at the centre of a ‘woke’ storm when his Fawlty Towers show, made some 40 years ago was temporarily canceled after complaints that it featured a ‘racist’ character.

Cleese called the BBC “cowardly and gutless” for removing an episode of the show, pointing out that the racist character in question was the target of ridicule in the show.

Cleese has previously warned that political correctness will lead to the death of comedy, noting that “If you start to say we mustn’t, we mustn’t criticize or offend them then humor is gone. With humor goes a sense of proportion. And then as far as I’m concerned you’re living in 1984.”

Cleese has been acutely aware of the threat cancel culture poses for decades:

After daring to question the diversity overlords, Cleese also recently found himself being labeled a ‘racist’:

His staunch refusal to deviate from his views has made Cleese the target of harassment.

Video: Virginia Kids Made To Sit Outside on Concrete In Freezing Cold For ‘Mask And Snack Break’

This time they didn’t even get buckets to sit on

The Fairfax County Parents Association has posted video taken from this week showing school children being seated on the ground outside in the snow in what school officials have described as a ‘mask and snack break.’

The footage shows a teacher from Waynewood Elementary school close to Alexandria reading to the kids while they sit apart on the concrete.

The group noted that the temperature was ‘well below freezing’:

Fairfax County Public Schools issued a statement in response noting “This morning on Twitter, an anonymous parent group posted a video that was taken outside of Waynewood Elementary School in Alexandria. In the video, a group of third grade students are taking a snack and mask break in front of the school.”

The statement continues, “The weather conditions were monitored, and the students were outside for less than seven minutes. The teacher was reading a story to keep the students entertained. Students do go outside for mask and snack breaks in cold weather, but that time is limited.”

The response did little to offset anger over the incident:

This activity has been ongoing in schools across the country.

Last month, kindergarten students in Portland, Oregon were forced to sit outside eating lunch on buckets in the near-freezing cold while socially distanced from their classmates.

At least those kids got buckets to sit on, so they’re doing better than in Virginia.

    Video: CNN Panics Over More People Beginning To Ignore COVID Fear Propaganda

    “They’re just ignoring everything and living their lives”

    CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy expressed disbelief and horror Monday that more Americans are beginning to live their lives normally again after two years of media driven pandemic panic and fear.

    Stelter asked a question that everyone already knows the answer to, “is the media out of touch with the public about COVID?”

    In a statement the irony of which can be lost on no one, Darcy replied that yes, the media is out of touch.

    Darcy further proclaimed “I think this is an issue because if people are tuning out what’s going on in cable news…the general population… you know, they’re just, you know, ignoring everything and living their lives and we’re not really getting the information that they need to them.”

    However will fewer than 200,000 Americans who regularly watch primetime CNN be able to cope without their daily dose of virus fearmongering?

    And how will CNN be able to sell more ad time if Americans turn it off and leave their homes?
