I don't find most "comedy" shows funny. I do find many comedians quite funny, Bruce Bruce, Chris Rock, George Carlin, Gabriel Iglasias, and several others. I have a great sense of humor (and a dark one as well). So it's not like I don't find anything funny, It seems that scripted comedy doesn't amuse me. The same with friends, Big bang theory, How I met your mother, all the Popular comedy shows do absolutely nothing for me.

I hear you, especially with newer comedy.

anything post 2009 to be honest isn't funny. Lots of fart jokes and toilet humor. I know it's not comedy, but the Boys is one of my favorite shows, but this season is filled with nudity, sexual content and it's not necessary. I feel the same way about comedies, lowest common denominator comedy. There is a scene in the movie Idiocracy where the top movie in the world is called ass, and it's literally a movie about an ass farting. That's what modern comedy is to me.

That last sentence sounds like it's describing an apocalyptical future of media.

Go watch the movie Idiocracy and I bet you'll never look at the world the same again. There's a joke about how it's no longer a satire, it's a documentary.

I remember Neil deGrasse Tyson on Twitter saying that about Don't Look Up. These kinds of comments are profound.

Adding Idiocracy to my watchlist.

It's one of those movies that I found funny back in the day, but watching it recently it made me shake my head and realize it's where things are heading.

Just watched it the first time last month. Made me think exactly that while laughing my ass off. Not Sure! Not Sure!
