Yeah, I think it's a great time to be a stand-up. I really do think it's dangerous again. And people are like... It's like, you hear something. When you are one of those people who just go to shows, you hear something. You're just like, as an audience member, you're just like, Wooooooaaah! Also, the woke outrage has totally worn off and has the opposite effect, like with Dave Chappelle. Like, you know, you can just skip Dave Chappelle's new special. Oh, must be awesome! I love the response, the internet all coming together, just to respond to those people. It goes, cool, who should I check out? Those people? Thanks. Yeah, thanks. And they're just like, ignore it. They did it with Dave Chappelle too. Yeah. You know, but Chappelle's special, you know the whole thing with Rotten Tomatoes, they only allowed five different woke reviewers to take care of it. Yeah, and they gave it a 0%. And then they released it to the public. We all loved it. Because everybody was mad. Like, what the fuck is this? Your job is to tell us what we'd like, and you failed at that job. Well, their job is to review things, and their ideology that they're forced to exist in is woke ideology. Anyone who's working as a journalist, like, there's really- It's the same thing that Christians did when they used to review stuff for, like, Christian content, remember that? Oh yeah. When they were rated based on how many kissing scenes are there, how many curses are there. Yeah. Like, you don't have to see those reviews. Those are, like, a separate people's reviews. Well, somebody wrote something about it that I actually retweeted today. See if you can find it about the connection between theology, the resemblances between woke ideology and theology. They're so similar. The same. Yeah, it's about compliance. We watch it doing it our way. Yes, our way. Our way. Put your hat on. Put your special underwear on. It's so dumb. It's so fucking whatever. So dumb. I hate even talking about it. I love talking about it. It's just like we're just writing jokes and doing fucking good things. But whenever someone who's woke says something that's ridiculous, it makes for great comedy. Richard Dawkins. It is so stupid. Yeah, so Dawkins is coming on the podcast soon, too. I'm excited to talk to him. The Righteous and the Woke. Why evangelists and social justice warriors. Well, click on that so I can get with the actual. Why evangelists and social justice warriors trigger me in the same way. It's the same like you got to do it my way shit. It's the right way. It really is. Yeah. Well, it's about compliance. People love compliance. They love getting other people to fall in line. Yeah. And they get scared when people are just out there doing whatever the fuck they want to do. And that's with everything, man. That's with their diet. That's with the way they behave. That's with the clothes they wear. People get mad. They get mad if you wear your hat backwards. I asked my friend who's now a rabbi. I asked him for help with the thing I'm doing in my hour. And to look it up just factually, I want to make sure I get it exactly right. And he's like, no, I'm not going to look that up for you just so you can make fun of it. What? That's not your job. Yeah. I'm like, I'm a Jew asking. And he goes, no, I'm not going to be part of this mockery. I'm like, you haven't even seen it. You haven't seen it. Wow. Someone help you. I know, but it's like fucking hard to find somebody who knows it knows it. I don't have that many people left in my part of my life. He really won't help you. Yeah. I'm like, fucking shut up. All you religious people all exactly save every religion. It's fucking real. And then what you want in terms of like not being embarrassed. But it's hilarious that they would have something that you don't want you mocking. Just let me hide the information. You can't hold it for me. Right. Like imagine if there was something like that would stand up. Like, no, I'm not going to tell you how we write jokes. You're just going to mock it. Maybe I will. How do you get up at the store? How do you get up at open mic tonight? I'm not telling you. You're just going to mock it. I mean, I am going to mock it, but it's going to be in a fun way. How do you go from being an opening act to being a middle to being a headliner? I'm not going to tell you. I'm not going to tell you that. Are you going to mock it? That drove me so crazy. Anything you can't mock is bullshit. Dude, I was so mad. I was like, get fucked. He was like, come on, don't use that language. You know, I'm a rabbi. Like eat my shit. All you religious fucks are exactly the fucking same. I'm asking for help as a Jew.
