Comedian Posts Contract for College Charity Performance. It's Unreal.
There's a reason the top comedians don't bother playing colleges (see Jerry Seinfeld Claims Liberal Colleges are Killing Comedy Because… and Dave Rubin on College Speech Protestors: ‘They Want You to Bow’). It's not worth dealing with leftist crybabies who somehow got out of the playpen. And those are just the professors! It's less of a hassle to work out new material during open mic night at Yuk Yuk's in Schenectady, where Louis CK is making a surprise appearance, than signing a contract guaranteeing you won't say anything which hurts anyone's wittle bitty feelings. So basically, no jokes.
Check out this "Behavioural Agreement Form" a comedian said he had to sign before taking the stage.
I just received an invitation to perform *comedy* at a university... The title of this "contract" nearly made me… https://t.co/MsTrPxlp0I— Konstantin Kisin (@Konstantin Kisin) 1544469636.0
The behavioral agreement form, while funny enough, is only the premise of the joke.
Here comes the punchline.
Plot twist: it's an UNPAID charity gig.— Konstantin Kisin (@Konstantin Kisin) 1544479948.0
A wise man once said, "There's a time and a place for everything. It's called college." Now college is where little Timmy can grow up to be a producer censoring what Elvis or Jim Morrison can do on the Ed Sullivan Show. We used to universally mock these people. Now they're all about to be our new talent pool for enjoyment.
Comedy isn't dead. It's just that the only funny things on college campuses are the students.
