On this topic, I find myself more and more feeling that the people who end up most offended and needing a “safe space” are the anti-PC people. There seems to be more complaints and whining from them revolving around the fact they can’t be jackasses about everything they don’t happen to like and/or believe in than from the people who might (and in plenty of cases, really do) suffer the consequences of the hateful/disrespectful things they say.
They shouldn’t be barred from performing, of course, and there is a certain audience that can be focused on for this brand of comedy. But still, none of this means a venue can be forced to give them a platform to perform on if they don’t agree with their views, or if they believe/expect their patrons (aka the people who would be paying to come see the performance) won’t be interested in seeing them.
As with any job/industry, things change over time; you either adapt to the changes (in this case: adjusting your comedy routine to what people will enjoy), switch careers, or go broke trying to do what is no longer in demand.
Does it suck? On some level, sure, especially if that is the only way you’ve ever known. But seriously though, complaining about people not wanting you to make fun of others is abit ridiculous when you get down to it, and if the only way you can prosper is built on putting others down, maybe on some level you’ve earned the vitriol you now receive.
