you've outgrown your favorite comedians? I've been noticing this a lot lately. I used to love George Carlin when I was younger. A few weeks ago hubby and I needed a laugh so we searched YouTube for some comedy videos and came across some George Carlin ones. We thought this would be great, we both loved his comedy. We ended up stopping it because we were becoming offended! Then a couple nights ago as I was flipping through TV channels I came across a Chris Rock stand up routine. I love Chris Rock, I usually end up laughing so hard it hurts. Well for some reason I wasn't finding his routine as funny as I usually would. Bits of it were funny, but the majority of it was just bland in my opinion. Now one of our favorite actors/comedians of all time is Adam Sandler. We've never disliked any of his movies or skits. So last night we sat down to watch his new movie "Don't mess with the Zohan". All in all the movie was good, but I felt like the majority of it was disgusting and disturbing. It's really no different from his other movies, I guess I'm just getting too old for that sort of humor. Hubby and I were trying to decide if he's getting worse, or if our tastes are just changing. I think it's us, we're growing up Have you ever sat down to watch someone that you know is funny, only to find it offensive, disturbing, or bland? Have you outgrown your favorite comedian?

I always found Carlin's comedy to be offensive too. My most hated Carlin moment was when he made fun of the woman who has lots of babies. As if that makes us inferior creatures. Babies are a blessing. I don't care what some old man says.

Gee, wonder why I found him offensive? Yeah when I was younger he was great, but now I'm the type of person he makes fun of. A soccer mom with a ton of babies.

Comedy is a sign of the times. What I mean is.. it is only really funny when it allpies to a situation in your own life or in what is around you. We change as we get older and things around us change. it is not suprising that you would relate to somthing/someone differant.
