Monty Python Comedian John Cleese Cancels Himself “Before Someone Else Does”

“I am blacklisting myself”

Monty Python comedian John Cleese has pulled out of a scheduled speech at Cambridge University, announcing that he is canceling himself “before someone else does.”

Cleese, who ironically was scheduled to bring along a film crew as part of a documentary on cancel culture called “Cancel Me,” didn’t even make it that far after the ‘debating society’ at the University banned another guest, art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon, for impersonating Adolf Hitler.

Given that Cleese has impersonated Hitler, and Nazis multiple times as part of comedy sketches and shows, he took the decision to ‘blacklist’ himself as a protest against the University’s woke move.

Cleese added that he would be happy to do the talk somewhere else “where woke rules do not apply” and where he doesn’t have to “walk on eggshells”:

The comedian then responded to those who continued to be offended:

Here’s an example of Cleese doing Hitler on Monty Python:

Cleese has long been outspoken against cancel culture, previously slamming permanently offended woke people, insisting that they have no sense of humour and are contributing to the death of comedy.

The comedian also made headlines earlier this year by tweeting out an ‘apology’ for using ‘white English people’ as the butt of the joke in past sketches, a reaction to The Simpsons actor Hank Azaria apologising for voicing an Indian character.

    Dave Chappelle Tricked SNL Producers by Giving Them Fake Monologue During Dress Rehearsal

    ‘Edgy’ monologue about Ye’s “anti-Semitism” was kept secret for live show.

    Comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly tricked SNL producers into allowing his controversial stand-up routine in relation to Kanye “Ye” West to be broadcast by providing them with a fake monologue during dress rehearsal.

    Chappelle was blasted for “desensitizing” Americans to anti-semitism after he told a number of jokes relating to Jewish power interests in Hollywood and the media.

    Although the comedian opened his monologue by saying, “I denounce anti-semitism in all its forms, and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community,” he proceeded to riff on the double standards of how scrutiny of Jews is treated differently to other ethnic groups.

    “I learned that there are two words in the English language that you should never say together in sequence. And those words are ‘the’ and ‘Jews,” joked Chappelle, before noting that everything was a game of “perception.”

    “If they’re black, it’s a gang. If they’re Italian, it’s a mob. If they’re Jewish, it’s a coincidence and you should neeeever speak about it,” said Chappelle.

    He also noted how Kyrie Irving had been given an absurdly long list of things to apologize for by the NBA before asserting that the persecution of Jews couldn’t be blamed on “black Americans.”

    “I’ve been to Hollywood…this is just what I saw, it’s a lot of Jews, like a lot,” Chappelle added. “But that doesn’t mean anything, there’s a lot of black people in Ferguson, Missouri, doesn’t mean they run the place.”

    Suggesting that “it’s not a crazy thing to think” that Jews run showbusiness, Chappelle joked, “But it’s a crazy thing to say out loud in a climate like this.”

    The Daily Beast immediately accused Chappelle of echoing Ye’s anti-Semitism, while the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt asked, “Why are Jewish sensitivities denied or diminished at almost every turn? Why does our trauma trigger applause?”

    “Dave Chappelle’s SNL skit was a meticulous & calculated move to desensitize the population from anti-semitism, getting society to laugh at Jewish traumas/struggles, and normalizing historic tropes by manipulating the average person’s pain and redirecting their reactions onto Jews,” asserted Rudy Rochman, a Jewish-Israeli rights activist.

    It has now been revealed that Chappelle had to slip the monologue by SNL producers, suggesting he feared they’d censor it, by giving them a fake alternative during the show’s dress rehearsal, and then performing the real ‘edgy’ monologue during the live show.

    “Dave does a fake monologue during the dress rehearsal, because he doesn’t want [‘SNL’ creator] Lorne Michaels, or anyone else, to know what his real monologue is,” a source told the New York Post’s Page 6.

    During the dress rehearsal, Chappelle also apparently told a joke about an SNL writer who had refused to work with him on the show due to being offended over the comedian’s previous “transphobic and homophobic jokes.”

    As Chris Menahan notes, “Sarah Silverman “joking” about killing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is just good clean fun but Chappelle’s jokes are “hate” and “anti-Semitism.”
