    Default Andrew Doyle on Woke Comedy, Left vs Identity Politics and Free Speech

    A refreshing perspective on hot social topics by comedian/journalist/activist Andrew Doyle who gets labelled a right wing extremist Nazi . . . but is actually a lefty – he explains why.

    Includes discussions revolving around Andrew’s comment: “this stupid myth that to criticize is damaging someone’s free speech is incredible”, “Literal Minded Interpretation”, the lack of critical thinking, and how ego dominates online discourse for a win result.

    Alistair Williams - Political Correctness is Killing Comedy

    Carl Benjamin interviews Alistair Williams

    Comedian Alistair Williams made a comedy sketch which happened to go against the mainstream bias. He didn't expect it to be hugely popular and go vial, but it did, and since then he has been shunned by the comedy industry.

    Here Carl Benjamin talks to Alistair about political politics and comedy.

    Wonderful... his skit here about Brexit and Burger King is what got him nailed. (It's very funny! )
