Bad Jokes = Human Rights Violation

Canadian comic Guy Earle is under siege!  Some lesbian hecklers at one of his shows are accusing him of violating their human rights by saying some of the things he did at the show to them.  The initial complain was heard in a preliminary hearing by humorless autocrat Heather MacNaughton (who worked over Mark Steyn), who ruled there was enough evidence to convene a trial.

From what I understand, this is all over heckling.  The lesbians say he crossed a line.  But seriously, folks, if you go to a comedy club and start shouting “You suck” at a comedian– you get what’s coming to you.  If you can’t laugh at the jokes, don’t.  But if you start heckling, you’re exposing yourselves to ridicule– and that’s exactly what they got.  And I heard Earle’s ridicule, and it’s funny.  Really really funny.

Does Canada really have to waste money dragging Guy Earle into a court to determine if he is a Human Rights Violator?  Come on– he’s a comic.  And a funny one.  Stop wasting time with this and let him get back to making people laugh.  An art some people (do you hear me Heather MacNaughton?) seem to have lost.

(I bet she’ll giggle if you call Bush Chimpy McDrinkerHitlerson.)

    Don’t well ALL know not to sit in the front at comedy clubs?

    What idiots sit at the front anyway? I tell you, people who want to be in the show to begin with. Picking a fight seems like a real hate crime to me.
    This poor guy was set up. Agent provacatuer!
