Comedy Under Attack

Submitted by ub on

Comedy should be humorous in the theatre, on film, stand-up comedy, television, radio, books, or any other entertainment medium.

The term originated in ancient Greece: in Athenian democracy, the public opinion of voters was influenced by the political satire performed by comic poets in theaters.  (LANGUAGE WARNING)

Comic Dave Chappelle was attacked last night during a routine in which he talked about how comedians have to worry about their personal security following this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. Shocking video footage shows Chappelle standing on stage as an audience member, identified by authorities as Isaiah Lee, 23,  charges and slams him to the floor. Seconds later, the attacker was tackled by security.
