While many may know Bill Burr as the hilarious creator for F Is For Family, this comedian has also been known to say some pretty offensive things.
In his 2019 Netflix special Paper Tiger, Burr left a bad taste in some mouths when he openly mocked the #MeToo movement and laughed that it went from "no one listening, to too much of an over-correction", before launching off into a rant asking what about the women "that like it rough".
Despite an audience member shutting down the joke and simply stating, "ask for consent", Burr was quick to shut this down as well, before going into another rant of people being "easily triggered", as if asking for consent is some outlandish proposition. He then went into a bit about how "women bullies" are hilarious to him, because how can they think that in the workplace they have standing over him, a man, before going off about male feminists.
Overall, the special made a lot of people frustrated at the obvious sexism that he tried to shluff off as comedy.
Michael Che has had a long career in comedy and is one of the more memorable recent SNL members. But that doesn't mean he's exempt from controversy.
Back in 2014, Che got some backlash after he shared a video of a woman walking around in New York in a day constantly getting catcalled. Che shared the video to his Twitter, and wrote at the time, "I'd like to apologize to all the women I've told to 'have a nice day', or 'you're beautiful,'" completely missing the point of the what the woman was trying to express.
Che also wrote a bit mocking Caitlyn Jenner after her transition calling her "a tranny", and making fun of the transgender experience, and has since rebuked using the word, although has still come under fire for other homophobic and transphobic rhetoric.
Comedy isn't' always supposed to be squeaky clean, but some comedians take it a little too far for some! The most controversial comedians can be some of the funniest!
Comedians strive to entertain, but sometimes what they find funny can leave those watching uncomfortable, but at least they're memorable!
The most controversial comedians
Sometimes comedians remind us to take the hardest topics in life and learn to find the humour in them. Take George Carlin, for example. The late comedian often times poked fun at religion, politics, and social justice. Despite sometimes offending audience members, you can't help but laugh at the fact that he doesn't take anything too seriously!
Not only did Carlin joke about Osama Bin Laden and called airport security a joke, but he also titled his HBO special "I Kinda Like It When People Die" just days before 9/11 happened, and his special ended up getting shelved until 2016.
When comedians go too far
Daniel Tosh has always been known for saying outrageous and shocking things, but it was one stand up in particular that left a really bad taste in people's mouths. During a 2012 stand up show, Tosh had an audience member call out during his performance, to which he responded how funny it would be if she got "gang raped right this second".
The Tosh.0 creator was left having to apologize for the disturbing comments, but his apology seemed lackluster, and many boycotted the comedian.
