    Warning: Offesnsive material

    I stumbled across this old routine from Eddie Murphy and was completely outraged at the homosexual bigotry on display. I think we can all be thankful we have moved on from such hateful rhetoric.

    The question is though.

    Has comedy lost its edge since it is no longer acceptable to incorporate stereotypes into any medium?

    I don't know what's more offensive, Eddie Murphy or your spelling.

    I know right.

    My anger was so great upon hearing this that I couldn't even see straight let alone spell properly.

    Very offensive

    The spelling is definitely atrocious.

    Eddie jumped the shark on this one Spookster.. but he's always been edgy as a comic and with that comes a certain license.

    NOT forgiven however.. and he'll hear from me on this one (as in NOW).

    I don't know that I agree with your premise. I think we still use stereotypes in comedy. I also think that stereotypes in comedy is more acceptable than stereotypes in everyday conversation. Because, in comedy stereotypes allow us the freedom to satirize the very ideologies that give rise to stereotypes.
