Welcome to the club, John Cleese:
John Cleese: Society Is Now Controlled By The Most Touchy, Emotionally Unstable, & Fragile People
Former Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese has had enough of political correctness and the cancel culture, and as for the state of the “dysfunctional world we live in,” warning that “it’s completely hopeless…”
As for the sense of hopelessness he feels, Cleese blames the “power seekers.”
“I believe there’s something wrong with these people. The reason they want to be powerful is that they want to control people, so that they don’t get lathered into situations that they can’t control emotionally. The one thing they fear is losing power, so they’ll do almost anything to hold on to it.If they don’t know what they’re doing or what they’re talking about, there’s no way (the world) will ever get well.”
“Everything humorous is critical. If you have someone who is perfectly kind and intelligent and flexible and who always behaves appropriately, they’re not funny. Funniness is about people who don’t do that, like Trump.”
comedians “have to set the bar according to what we are told by the most touchy, most emotionally unstable and fragile and least stoic people in the country”.
That’s how we end up with modernized “comedians” that are so anti-funny that it is actually hilarious that they are so unfunny. Names like Amy Schumer come to mind.
You know we’re living in an upside-down world when the “comedians” are funny not because of their jokes but because of their very existence. The fact that these failures made it to the top aptly describes the inverted comedy we’re actively living in.
John Cleese apparently just figured that one out.
Welcome to the club of reality, Cleese. We’ve been trapped here for awhile.
