Fun read but I don’t buy the premise here. It’s difficult to consider the brand of comedy you find “transgressive” to actually be transgressive when it’s the comedy getting rave reviews in the New York Times and across virtually all respected media. That’s the accepted comedy

And yeah, if a person goes to a comedy show and shouts “Fuck you” at someone in the middle of their set and then storms onto the stage when they insult you, I have very little respect for the way that person acted.

Much, much better written than most articles I’ve seen advocating for this point of view, though.
