So, I forgot to blog yesterday. Bad baaaad me.

Well, I was going to talk about comedians yesterday, and somehow forgot to post. But here we are.

I don't mind watching comedians (or comedy series). Quite honestly, I don't, or at least, I don't if they're good comedians. However, more and more these days, you see the type that just uses crude humor.

For example, I was sitting in the ER waiting room, and there was a show on TV. This talk host (that's what I assumed he was, at least) introduced a man he called the 'pit bull of comedy'. This so called pit bull of comedy... sucked. For me, at least. Every single joke was crude. He talked about porn. He talked about drugs. And he talked about watching porn because his wife wouldn't do those things with him. You don't bring your wife in when you're talking about porn! Just not done!

And so, he went on and on. It was just an introduction, to promote his movie, or something. But quite honestly? I don't find myself compelled to watch his movie, watch his shows, or to even have anything to do with him ever again.

But the thing is, most run of the mill comedians are like that nowadays. The man who went before Russel Peters talked about vaginae and farts. If you youtube 'comedian', you'll probably find someone who mentions sex and porn and drugs. Unless you find a female comedian.

I don't know if I'm just biased, or unlucky, or what. But it seems to me that most male comedians seem stuck in this crude humor. I don't mind some crude humor. I guess some people like that. But I don't want male locker-room talk. I won't pay for that.

So has humor become spit by gender?
