The Social Justice Warriors Comedy Tour

Google “social justice warriors comedy” and you’re mainly gonna get articles titled things like “Social Justice Warriors Are Ruining Good Comedy” and “How Social Justice Warriors Have Destroyed Stand Up Comedy.” If you agree with these sentiments, you’ll be glad to know that this comedy tour, like practically anyone applying the dreaded SJW moniker to themselves, is obviously named ironically. While nobody on the bill — Brody Stevens (Children’s Hospital, The Hangover), Jim Florentine (Crank Yankers, That Metal Show), Chad Zumock (Gotham Live, The Artie Lange Show) and Sam Tripoli (Premium Blend, Wide World of Spike!) — is exactly Don Rickles or Andrew “Dice” Clay, they’re all club-seasoned comics who’ve guested on shows hosted by the likes of Howard Stern, Daniel Tosh and Joe Rogan. In other words, they’re practically guaranteed not to deliver spoken-word think pieces about how “problematic” laughing at something or other is. They’re gonna make with the funnies, and let blogs sort ‘em out. Laugh along or make mental notes for think pieces of your very own and be the SJW you want to see in the comedy world. Arrive on time to watch Austin comic Jay Whitecotton warm up the crowd.
