Around the time of the Ross/Brand saga, Carr went on radio (2, I think) to defend the need for offensive comedy. You should have a a gander at it, although I can't remember quite what was said, he convinced me that there's a world of difference between how Carr tells those kinds of jokes compared to how people like Davidson do. Not the best defence in the world, but it's important to differentiate between a joke where the target is the minority, and one where the target is the person laughing at the minority (if that makes sense.)Althea wrote:I wish he'd stop with insulting minority groups. It's not big and it's not clever.
