International Comedy Festival Removes Barry Humphries (Dame Edna) Name From Award Over Transphobia

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival said its prestigious Barry Award for best show would be renamed.

Humphries, best known for his character Dame Edna Everage, has repeatedly drawn anger and outrage for his comments about transgender people – to which he later defended himself.

His remarks had “definitely played a part” in the change, the festival said.

Humphries co-founded the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 1987, and it is now one of the world’s premier comedy events. Its top prize has been named in his honor since 2000.

In one comment in which Humphries claimed to have been speaking in character when referred to gender-reassignment surgery as “self-mutilation” in a 2016 interview with The Telegraph. He also described Caitlyn Jenner as a “publicity-seeking rat-bag”.

Humphries has also called being trans a ‘fashion’ in the past

Previous winners of the Barry, including Hannah Gadsby and Zoe Coombs Marr, called for the award to be renamed after he made the above comments.

Former Monty Python Member and Director Terry Gilliam: Since White Men Get ‘Blamed for Everything’ I’m Now ‘a Black Lesbian in Transition’

Former Monty Python Member and Director Terry Gilliam: Since White Men Get ‘Blamed for Everything’ I’m Now ‘a Black Lesbian in Transition’

Former Monty Python member and filmmaker Terry Gilliam went off about  the current demands for diversity on screen in an interview at the the 2018 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Gilliam was asked about remarks made by the controller of BBC comedy Shane Allen who in May said about Monty Python, that audiences now demand diversity, and that the legendary comedy troupe could not happen today: “If you’re going to assemble a team now, it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes. It’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world.”

Gillian responded, according to ET Canada:

“I’m no longer a white man, I’m a black lesbian. But seriously, it’s really crazy. In the BBC, it is true that every little group of people on this planet must be represented in everything they broadcast. It made me cry: the idea that … no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show. Now we need one of this, one of that; everybody represented… this is bullsh*t…I no longer want to be a white male. I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian… My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition. [His] statement made me so angry, all of us so angry. Comedy is not assembled, it’s not like putting together a boy band where you put together one of this, one of that everyone is represented.

Now For Something Completely Different: John Cleese Speaks His Mind On Political Correctness

Monty Python co-founder and longtime actor, comedian, screenwriter, and producer John Cleese takes on political correctness.

The essence of comedy is being critical, says Cleese, and that means causing offense sometimes. But we shouldn’t protect everyone from experiencing negative emotions by enforcing political correctness, he says.

While receiving 20,000 thumbs up. The video has only triggered and oppressed 186 people with thumbs down votes.

At Rob Lowe’s Celebrity Roast Ann Coulter Gets Burned At the Stake: The 20 Best Slams – Video

Ann Coulter Gets Roasted At Robe Lowe Roast

 

At Rob Lowe’s Celebrity Roast Ann Coulter Gets Burned At the Stake: The 20 Best Slams – Video

The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe aired Monday night, with many of the previously reported digs — at both roastee Rob Lowe and roaster Ann Coulter — making it to air.

Even though the night belonged to Rob Lowe, Coulter found herself to be recipient of the night’s most scathing jabs. The conservative pundit bitch commentator was frequently panned to throughout the roast, showing viewers of the Comedy Central special just how unamused she was by her fellow roasters.

Roasters included Jimmy Carr, Coulter, Pete Davidson, Nikki Glaser, Jewel, Ralph Macchio, Peyton Manning, Rob Riggle and Jeff Ross, with David Spade served as Roast Master.

Below, a roundup of some of the 20 most outrageous burns and the ruthless public flogging deserving of only a fear-mongering racist who has spread hate upon the world for almost two decades…

“Ann Coulter, if you’re here who’s scaring the crows away from our crops?” — Pete Davidson

“Last year we had Martha Stewart who sells sheets, and now we have Ann Coulter who cuts eye holes in them.” — Davidson

“Holy shit, is that Ann Coulter? Ann Coulter is here, which can mean only one thing: someone must’ve said her name three times. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.” — Riggle

“Fun fact: Ann Coulter has a big angry bush. No joke, that’s just a fun fact.” — Riggle

“As a feminist, I can’t support everything that’s being said up here tonight. But as somebody who hates Ann Coulter, I’m delighted.” — Jewel

“Jeff Ross is going to party like it’s 1999. Ann Coulter is going to vote like It’s 1899.” — Jewel

“Ann you do look great though, you’re almost as thin as Donald Trump’s chance at winning the election.” — Jewel

“She ordered something to go. The entire kitchen staff. She was like leave … the country.” — Jewel on being behind Coulter in line at Chipotle

“Gay men love Ann Coutler. It’s because two minutes into hearing her speak, they remember why they hate pussy.” — Jewel

“One of the most repugnant, hateful hatchet bitches alive, but it’s not too late to change, Ann – you could kill yourself.” — Jimmy Carr

“Ann Coulter’s pussy — seriously this gets classy — Ann Coulter’s pussy is now so old and dry that it just got a job drawing cartoons for The New Yorker.” — Carr

“I’m not the only athlete up here tonight. As you all know earlier this year, Ann Coulter won the Kentucky Derby. Congrats on that Ann. Great job.” — Manning

“Ann Coulter has written 11 books. Twelve if you count Mein Kampf.” — Glaser

“The only person you will ever make happy is the Mexican who digs your grave.” — Glaser on Coulter

“Don’t be mad. At least I acknowledge the Holocaust, Ann doesn’t even think it happened.” — Glaserg

“She seems stiff and conservative, but she gets wild in the sheets. Just ask the clan.” — Spade on Ann Coulter

“I haven’t seen you laugh this hard since Trayvon Martin got shot.” — Spade on Coulter

“I want to welcome you all to the Ann Coulter roast with Rob Lowe.” — Ann Coulter

“Ann what happened? You wrote 11 books but you couldn’t write a single f—ing joke?” — Ross

“Ann, after your set tonight. We’ve all witnessed the first bombing that you can’t blame on a Muslim.” — Lowe

In the end when it finally came time for Coulter to roast back, she opted instead to promote her book and make jokes about David Spade being the only “spade” to vote for Trump, Peyton Manning’s support of Jeb Bush, and Pete Davidson being bi-racial, all of which fell completely flat. Like her face.
