When comedy has limits, comedy is over.

Also, when people have to have this level of comedy explained, they likely still won’t get it.

Comedy shouldn’t have limits.  It’s freedom of speech.  If you don’t like it, don’t watch/listen.  There are lots of “jokes” that I don’t like but they can bring important issues to the forefront.

In regard to the “Blue Ivy” joke from Difficult People: the joke isn’t the kid.  The joke is that the CHARACTER is a terrible person and makes horribly mean jokes.  And further, the joke is the massive hypocrisy that R Kelly is a child molester and Blue Ivy’s dad COLLABORATED on an album with that filthy pedo which dropped the same year as the sex tape allegations brought against him.  Oh, and then they collaborated again on another album, so clearly Jay-Z is a supporter and fan.

R. Kelly is still out there, and probably has already pissed on another little girl.  And it’s not funny, it’s sick, but comedy can sometimes bring people to justice, at least in the court of public opinion (Hannibal Buress and Bill Cosby, anyone?)
