  • Laura and Andrew get into some first world problems and sound like real assholes.
  • “Comedian” Shane Gillis was fired from SNL before making his first appearance on the show because his “red state appeal” turned out to just be racism.
  • This has renewed claims of cancel culture and comedy censorship in some circles, but we explain why throwing around bigoted language for shock value doesn’t qualify as comedy.
