New Daily Show Host Examined For... Offensive Tweets
— Ace

I just realized I saw Trevor Noah do his standup for a few minutes. He's one of those comedians who does nothing but Jokes About What He Is. Like when you see a Fat Comic and he does nothing but jokes about being fat. Or a Mexican comic who does nothing but jokes about the differences between Mexicans and Anglos.

Trevor Noah is half-white, half black, and from South Africa. So I saw him do five minutes on being half-white, half-black, and from South Africa.

Then I turned it off because, seriously, who cares. None of it was funny.

In the brief spot I saw, he didn't do much that was controversial or political. The word I would use is "cloying." He really wanted people to like him.

He's been named as the new, younger, soooo much cheaper host of The Daily Show.

I kind of would like him to succeed just to prove that Jon Stewart's audience are Clapping Seals so it doesn't matter what is said on the show, as long as it flatters their politics. I'm sure you're really tired of hearing how a-MAZ-ing Jon Stewart is at yelling, doing the dumb guy voice, tapping a pencil, and making silly faces at the camera. It would be nice to see that someone else can yell, do the dumb guy voice, tap a pencil, and make silly faces at the camera too.

But Noah's now being scrutinized by the SJWs for tweetcrimes. They say his tweets are offensive.

I have to say these tweets offend me, too. They're very unfunny. They're the sort of things that unfunny people tweet when they want to be funny.

On Twitter, where he has had an account since 2009 and accumulated more than two million followers, Mr. Noah often posts irreverent statements that reflect his interests in popular culture, global politics and issues of race. As with many comedians, Mr. Noah's jokes can test the boundaries of what is socially permissible and what is in bad taste.

In several posts, Mr. Noah came across as mocking or derisive of women. In one from 2011, he writes: "Oh yeah the weekend. People are gonna get drunk & think that I'm sexy!" a quote that he attributes to "fat chicks everywhere."

In another post from last year, he quotes another Twitter user who writes, "When a woman is loved correctly, she becomes 10 times the woman she was before," to which Mr. Noah adds: "So she gets fat?"

Mr. Noah has also posted jokes about Jewish people and about Israel. As he wrote in 2009, "Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road. He didn’t look b4 crossing but I still would hav felt so bad in my german car!"

Another post from 2010 reads, “South Africans know how to recycle like israel knows how to be peaceful.”

...

Others seemed to shrug off these posts simply as unfunny.

...

Others pointed out that he also has made fun of Americans, South Africans and people from numerous other countries. When a fan tweeted at him last October, asking him to please come to Texas, Mr. Noah replied, "But you've already got Ebola?"

...

Mr. Noah seemed aware on Tuesday of the controversy surrounding his tweets. Just before 9 a.m. Eastern time, he posted: "Twitter does not have enough characters to respond to all the characters on Twitter." The tweet was deleted shortly after.

When I first saw this guy, I thought English was his second language and he was playing for the Yakov Smirnov Southern Division slot.

You see what I mean? What person, who is not either eight years old, or eighty eight years old, is delighted by the characters/characters pun?

More: Ezra Levant Asks, "Is This Funny?:" But he's curious as to those anti-Jew jokes -- are these just "pleasing the audience" clapter jokes for his audience, given that Noah performs on what Levant calls the "Muslim dictatorship comedy tour," Oman, etc.?

One joke that Levant reads that I think is so-so funny -- not really in the class of the jokes that are plainly unfunny -- was his crack about watching women's Olympic hockey being like "watching lesbian porn, but without the porn." That's not a side-splitter or anything but it is something of a joke. I wouldn't call that one completely unfunny.

A lot of these other ones, though... Man, these are terrible.


More: Rick Wilson talks about the odds that Trevor Noah will be fired for his "borderline anti-semitic" tweets.

I don't really like characterizing them that way because there's so much of that damn claim -- everything is "hate." No one's allowed to say anything at all, hardly.

He definitely has, let us say this, the Sophisticated European Take on anti-semitism, which is to say, he's not made uncomfortable by it.

Now if a right-wing person made these sorts of jokes about anyone in the Protected Leftist Coalition, they would be branded "hate" and "racism." But I don't think that's a good enough reason to spring to do so ourselves.

He predicts the left will begin accusing the right of being racist, and then the media will all repeat this:


Check that Twitchy thread -- Salon and others are already pushing that line.

Meanwhile, Vox is posting Noah's five most high-larious comedy bits. The below is one of them.

I would almost think that Jon Stewart endorsed this guy, knowing he would fail, which would then prove that Jon Stewart Is The Only Man Who Can Save Us. But while I think Stewart is guilty of a lot of sins, I don't think he has that sort of huge-but-brittle ego that would impel him to do something like that. I think his ego is huge and solid. He doesn't need Noah to fail.

So I guess that will just be a Little Bonus.

8 As with many comedians, Mr. Noah's jokes can test the boundaries of what is socially permissible and what is in bad taste. Sigh. In many cases, this is the *point* of comedy. Not even necessarily to "shock," but to point out that our social mores are... just social mores, and that taking them too seriously can be bad, too.

See, everybody gets in trouble on twitter! Although that stuff seems pretty mild.

 

I actually watched part of his standup yesterday and some of it was pretty funny. He is overly obsessed with his background, but the bit about trying to learn german by listening to mp3s in his sleep and realizing they were hitler speeches was pretty funny.

Anyone notice since ANC has taken over SA GDP has tanked.  Soon SA will be the new Zimbabwe.



Whites already live totally apart from the Blacks in gated armed communities.  Car jacking are a norm.



To put it bluntly, if SA didn't have gold and diamonds they would be Zimbabwe right now.  I give them 10 more years.

20 I'm enjoying the Prog Fight. But yeah, Trevor just does dumb jokes. His political stuff is clapper humor. I'm enjoying the Left freak out over his bits on African gays - complete where he prances about on stage like a fairy wistfully dreaming about prison rape. That's an actual bit.

21 We'll see how well he holds up. Now, if he sticks with insulting the USA and Americans then he will be successful with the segment of the population that enjoys it when foreigners insult the country and its citizens. That segment is know as the entertainment industry and The Daily Show's audience is comprised of it.

32 Colbert was taken over by The Nightly Show w/ Larry Wilmore. How is that doing in the ratings? ComCentral put out a press releases after the premiere about how good it did -- as ppl tuned in to see the new guy, or just forgot Colbert was gone. But they haven't put out any press releases about his awesome TV ratings since then. Which pretty much guarantees they suck.

Yakov Smirnov was at least funny back in the 1980's: 

"America is great and you have so many channels to watch on TV. In Russia, we only have two channels.  Channel 1 is Soviet propaganda.  Channel 2 is KGB Officer saying -Turn back to Channel 1-."

34 I'm of the opinion that comedy died quite a while back. For years now it's been gross-out, shock, sadism, and confirmation bias, but not so much funny. This guy looks like a continuation of that trend.

35 Wait he was hired to do the Daily Show?  I thought that was a Jew only show.  Is he also Jewish?  How will be be able to tell all the Jewish jokes Jon Stewart does mocking his own religion.



It's just not going to work.

36 You live long enough and you see the left demand that all humor be reduced to Bob Hope set-up, gentle punch line humor. Because...progressive. George Carlin and Lenny Bruce are too busy spinning in their graves to comment. Also, I find it very problematic that a lot of the Noah's critics on the left are white. They really need to check their privilege.

THIS.

Sometime listen to the comedy radio station while driving, and it is amazing how bad and unclever a lot of comedians are - especially the ones who feel the need to mock safe targets like Christians, Republicans, Jews, etc., like Trevor Noah. It's the ones who can get beyond the identity jokes that are funny.

46 They need to get Charlize Theron as a guest the first week, the two can opine on being African together! Will be totes precious you guys. I said this the other day in a random thread, but I think it was a mistake for them not to hire Jessica Williams as the host. She put in her dues there, she will have a better pulse on American politics than Noah, and I think a lot of female SJWs expected her to get the gig. I don't really find her hysterical but then I'm not the lib LIV audience they are going for. Personally I thought John Hodgman would be in intriguing possibility as replacement host, but then I like his nebbishy wry wit. Also because subconsciously I love white patriarchy, I suppose, hah.

49 According to Wikipedia, Noah says his mother is half Jewish:

Noah's mother, Patricia Noah, is a black South African (Xhosa), and his father, Robert Noah, is white (of Swiss-German descent). He has also said, "My mum doesn't fit into any category, she's a black South African woman who's half Jewish". His parents' relationship was illegal at the time of his birth, and his mother was jailed and fined by the South African government. His mixed-race heritage, his experiences growing up in a Soweto township, and his observations about race and ethnicity are leading themes in his comedy.

If true, doesn't that mean he's allowed to poke fun at his own ethnicity? I haven't kept up on all the speech codes, but I'm pretty sure that's in there.

It's a big investment to go south. Why do we have so many non americans with tv shows? It's getting ridiculous. How do American comedians feel about it? It's not like him or Cordon (who's debut I watched and though it sucked) have any special talent. They are no Craig Ferguson who was very good and became an American.

78 I don't find the whole Jon Stewart / Daily Show routine funny. I never have. Maybe once in a thirty minute show there will be a one liner that makes me half smile. I think the kinds of people who laugh at Jon Stewart are the same people who laugh at commercials and silly laugh track sitcoms like 2 and a half men. Everyone knows its not really funny, but you feel like you're supposed to laugh.

81 He must be the best fit for that job. He's the kind of comedian that makes "jokes" that are just affirmations for the audience that "they're hip, cool, rad, with it, socially acceptable".

Letterman and a few others (well most comics nowadays) do it.

They say something so the audience gets to feel all warm and cozy because they "get" the joke and the jokes on those red neck sister humping nose pickers in fly over country.

Most normal people don't go out of their way to offend people and when they do they are usually appalled and apologize. which is what the falsely offended want. It is a type of power but it depends on the good nature of those being falsely accused. If they ever display a WGAF attitude then its over.

101 He's not gonna go anywhere. It's CBS' long history of hiring non-Americans to "tut-tut" us about how we vote (for the non-Socialists/communists). Plus, Comedy Central has really been on the skids the last year or so. Brickleberry is getting cancelled. South Park airs about 5 new episodes a year. Kroll show's final season sucked big time. Almost all their other shows are SJW approved snoozefests. Workaholics still remains funny, but CC will probably cancel that after this season to make room for some other SJW lame comedy. Funny that almost all of the highest rated shows/specials are the "Blue Collar" comics or Jeff Dunham, but CC only plays them during sweeps when they need their ratings.

106 I just think this is the mainstreaming of a casual kind of antisemetism. That's where we are. Well, I think in some circles that's where we are. Noah seems to have developed his style in a world where casual anti-Semitism is only slightly edgy, or possibly mostly inoffensive. A lot of comedians try to find the edge of permissibility and step a toe over and then turn to the audience with a "Did I just say that?" smirk. The problem for Noah, I think, is that the edge is in a different place over here. So instead of being cheeky or irreverent it's just wrong.

141 Actually his comedy routines are pretty funny, particularly his earlier stuff. He gets away with more ethnic material than white comedians can, but he does it in a equal-opportunity kind of way focused more on culture than behavior. In other words no "white people be like.... black people be like..." Russel Simmons Comedy Jam crap. However, each new special I've seen has been less funny, and I suspect his exposure to American blacks is ruining his perspective and attitude. But in no way is this man ready for prime time, as it were, in an American show. He just doesn't have the style or approach that will remotely work. Jon Stewart made his bones by doing several shows over the years and honing his technique, stage presence, and skills. He was effective, even if he was a lying hypocritical shill for the hard left. This comedian? He's way off from being that guy.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at March 31, 2015 01:00 PM (39g3+) One of my best friends in college was a kid from Uganda. He was always at a loss to understand black Americans to him. He simply could not understand their views on a lot of things, race in particular. The funniest thing was watching members of an all-black fraternity try and recruit him. I think they would have had better luck and less frustration recruiting a Klan member. It's almost as if it's not about race but culture and experience. Crazy, huh?

164 Jon Stewart was really, really funny before the Daily Show (his own show was pretty good) and before 2002 his run on the show was good too. He avoided direct blatant attacks on non-leftists and wasn't so stupidly defensive around leftists. The show would attack people more. And the segments were more just goofy than propaganda. Then he went off the deep end and I couldn't watch it any longer.

170 Anti-semitic is Helen Thomas telling the Jews to "get out of Palestine" and go back to Poland.  Anti-semitic is Roseanne posing dressed as Hitler with pans of "Jew cookies" coming out of the ovens.


Calling Israel anti-peace isn't so much anti-semitic as anti-Israel (also  intellectually stunted, sophomoric, and flat out wrong, BIRM).


I haven't read any of his other tweets or humor RE: Jews and Israel,   so this is only a WAG,  but I think this guy is less anti-semitic and more anti-bothering-to-know-jack-shit-about-what-he's-talking-about.

176 I just attribute it to cowardice. They know they won't get any real shit for jokes about Jews or Christians. Which slides right into ThunderB's point. Why is it "cowardice?" Why won't they "get any real shit for jokes about Jews or Christians?" Because society is mainstreaming antisemitism and anti-christian-ism. It's okay - in some cases even celebrated - to make fun of the Jews or Christians. Even setting aside Mohammedans (because Mohammedanism is an evil death cult), it is *not* accepted to mock blacks (unless you're black AND recognized as "down with the struggle") or Hispanics (unless you're Hispanic and recognized as "down with the struggle"). Now, that doesn't make all jokes at the expense of Jews and Christians not funny. And comedy should be judged on if it is funny. These samples of this guy's stuff... are not funny.

177 32 Colbert was taken over by The Nightly Show w/ Larry Wilmore. How is that doing in the ratings? ComCentral put out a press releases after the premiere about how good it did -- as ppl tuned in to see the new guy, or just forgot Colbert was gone. But they haven't put out any press releases about his awesome TV ratings since then. Which pretty much guarantees they suck. Posted by: Costanza Defense at March 31, 2015 12:40 PM (ZPrif) His ratings are about 3/4 of what Colbert's were, but that is probably because Stewart is still hosting the Daily Show. Once Stewart leaves, both shows will be in a free fall. Link: http://blogs.wsj.com/cmo/2015/03/30/comedy-central-larry-wilmore-ratings/

Their power comes from Comedy Central cutting up the show into palatable bites, and disseminating that via vids the next day. Those vids then get dispersed everywhere and shared via the LIVs that way. Use social media not cable eyeballs to spread the lefty message far and wide. I have never understood why FOX never did the same with Red Eye, wasted opportunity.

It's classic abuser behavior: "Oh, you're not worthy of me; you're lucky I put up with you." As for hipster males- they've been reared that all that is evil in the world is because of males, so they believe they *deserve* to be abused.

Yeah I know some guys from west Africa and they are baffled and disgusted by American black culture.

One of the best take-downs I ever saw occurred at a pub in Kenya.  A couple of blacks from the ship came in and run a ahuch 'n jive routine to the black bartender.  He responded with a heavy "British Butler type accent "I beg your pardon".  The two blacks turned around and walked out.

265 I agree that some of the funniest comedy out there has been an ethnic group mocking its self. Jewish comedians mocking Jews. Black comedians mocking blacks. Hispanic comedians mocking hispanics. Its absolutely funny stuff, usually.

It was US President Barack Obama who said that each of those elements was not needed for a peaceful program. Obama, during a question and answer session at the Saban Forum at the Brookings Institution in Washington in December 2012, said the following In terms of specifics, we know that they dont need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. They certainly dont need a heavy water reactor at Arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. They dont need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have a limited, peaceful nuclear program, Obama said at the time. Video and Audio tape is a bitch ha Fredo?

277 Pence should have just stuck to his guns, I genuinely think he's giving the impression now that he's done something wrong by his actions.

Also, the law in my opinion should have been written in a more specific way that allowed people to basically not have to participate in the ceremony of a gay wedding.  That's really what the purpose of the law was about and it would have been much harder to have made the case that Americans should be forced to be a part of a gay wedding against their conscience. 

It was just too open ended and was easy to mischaracterize.  I don't think any conservative wants a law that allows them to say not serve a person based on their sexual orientation, it was about being forced to be a part of something people found sacrieligious.

People keep touting their low ratings as proof they are irrelevant, but I never thought that argument worked. Their power comes from Comedy Central cutting up the show into palatable bites, and disseminating that via vids the next day. Those vids then get dispersed everywhere and shared via the LIVs that way. Use social media not cable eyeballs to spread the lefty message far and wide.

Just the old "our ratings suck, but that's just because people listen to us in their cars" radio DJ excuse.

There's a certain level of attention that pops up on the internet, but it has a transuranic half-life. Think of all the #hashtivism campaigns that have come and gone in the last year.  Heck, the last week.

There's more than a few areas in the world where the holocaust is either largely unknown or considered a big white man fake.

An Indian chief having feds bust into his pow wow and steal a bunch of their eagle feathers? Come on, that's just asking for a movie.

Yeah, thought the skit was funny because it hightlighted the whole "just do your job and not preach to me" aspect of the Starbucks campaign. But there was definitely the slam that stoopid white car mechanics are funny when you make them express their feelings on gender issues - they chose to *not* pick on a more traditionally Lefty/elitist establishment, such as, say, having Amazon customer support or Siri engaging in social talk w/consumers.

I'm strictly into God's things - not interested in Trevor's things." Other than while telling his onstage jokes, the 27-year-old rarely speaks about his mother. Yesterday, neither he nor his publicist responded to e-mails asking for comment about his mother's remarks. In 2009, when tenants of some of the Johannesburg inner-city flats Patricia Noah owns accused her of running slums, Trevor was quoted by the Sowetan newspaper as saying: "It's not the first time this has come up. I do not get involved in these matters because my mother doesn't want me to." http://goo.gl/T1R4a

Commenting below a YouTube video of Noah's appearance, one user said: "This hack comedian actually thought it was hilarious to generalise a community that, I'm absolutely positively sure, he thoroughly knows nothing about. Okay, good luck on his career - especially in America." Another said: "Like a kid that gets bullied then goes home and bullies his little cousin, these racism jokes are unoriginal, and f***ing weak. The weed joke wasn't bad." Noah was even called a "lame comedian, who did nothing but perpetuate asinine stereotypes, in front an audience filled with the demographic that believes them".

Cut off at the knees. Posted by: SE Pa Moron at March 31, 2015 01:48 PM (xQX/f) When the show is aired on Comedy Central, Comedy Central does not have to pay for the rights to use the footage from other networks because they are not profiting directly from someone else's property. Once that show is sold to Nefflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, then Comedy Central is directly profiting from the other networks' property and must pay them restitution. If you look back at old TV shows, one of the problems they had when DVDs/VHS came along was the music rights. Example, these two clips from SNL: The original: http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/679770/ The one on DVD/Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/280873 Notice the different music? The first one aired on NBC, and can use "Beautiful Girls" by Van Halen because SNL/NBC are using the song as part of the show, but not directly profiting since they pay licensing fees to ASCAP/BMI/SESAC. The Hulu clip uses standard production music which SNL bought and can profit off as much as they like.

381 Actually, Stewart WOULD pick a second rater to follow him. If you've ever read Harvey Mackay's "Swim With the Sharks", one of his rules is never let a superstar pick his own successor. That nobody really wants the guy following him to succeed. The specific example he used was Bud Grant hand picking Les Steckle to succeed him as the Vikings head coach in 1984. One 3-13 season later, Steckle is fired, and who gets hired to ride in and save the day? Bud Grant, who took them to 7-9 and then retired again as more of a legend than before.
