This was slightly cringey.  The joke wore thin really early.

Good comedy requires the ability to hit on sensitive topics across the board.  As left has fully embraced PC culture and made sensitive topics verboten, leftist comedy has turned into dog shit as it's humor wears off pretty quick when the only two subjects you can crack wise about are white people and Donald Trump.

 

That doesn't mean you can't hate Trump and those who love what he is doing, and still be a good comic.  Dave Chappelle for example has bits lampooning Trump for things he doesn't like but he also isn't afraid to crack jokes about trannys and other sacred cows of the left.

 

Not to mention SNL has far to many women on the cast and women just are not funny.

SNL has had a few notable "good" and even "great" sketches from the past two years.  One of the big ones would be Tom Hanks as a Trump voter on Celebrity Jeopardy or most of Louis C.K.'s stuff (yes, he is fully a Leftist).  But I notice you mentioning "leftist comedy".  Are there ANY examples of good Right comedy in the past 3 years?  I mean, is the best we have Gavin McInnes and Steven Crowder?  Oh, Lordy, that's bad.  Seriously, can you offer me an example of good "Right" comedy?

Bill Burr has some good un-PC comedy, even though he's a liberal at heart he trolls the left with the best of them.

 

 

 

I can't think of any good "right" comedy since The Colbert Show & same goes for "left" comedy & The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Yeah, that's kind of the thing...most comedians mock the Right because overall the Right is entrenched in evangelical garbage toilets.  I have a feeling people are conflating "not being PC" with "the Right", which is not exactly how it is.  You look at the legendary roots of modern comedy like Carlin and Seinfeld and they're fairly PC while still being quite "Left".  When you get into more recent stand up you have to contend with the myriad of SNL comedians (who are almost all going to be "Leftist") and even extremely edgy comics such as Louis C.K. and Anthony Jeselnik and they still come off as "Leftist" because the very aura of "the Right" is one of authority...and these comedians are defying that authority.  Even Bill Burr above still comes off as simply chiding elements of the Left while still remaining true to it.  

 

 

Making fun of the more idiotic aspects of The Left is quite common and even one of the biggest Lefties around, Bill Maher, will mock PC culture...but he's still upholding The Left.  There just isn't a good Right comedian because at the end of the day "The Right" are the ones furrowing their brows, telling children not to have sex, and averting their eyes when it comes to the reality of the world...and there's just no humor to be had there.  The Left at least can laugh at itself and take a fucking joke.

Yeah, it's pretty rare to find an artist of any kind who's on the right politically. The mentality of art is liberal by nature. There would be plenty who don't vote democrat though.

Tim Allen is the only guy on this list who I rate

Joe Rogan's listing is in error. He's a left-leaning centrist with libertarian philosophy thrown in for good measure. Norm is just crazy & probably doesn't vote.

 

The only openly Democrat comedian who I have time for is Jon Stewart because he's so talented he can make just about anything funny.
