As expected, Bill Maher has now weighed in on the non-troversy, that erupted this week when Jerry Seinfeld bemoaned the culture of political correctness on college campuses – and Maher went a step farther.
Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work.
The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the makeup of his audience.
“Liberals are definitely more PC. I used to fight with this audience all the time, because we used to get the audience strictly from liberal sources. Then we got the audience from like everywhere, and I’ve had a much better time the last couple of months.”
How’s that for delicious irony? The only way Bill Maher can guarantee he’ll get some laughs is by packing his studio with uptight, puritanical conservatives.
