(VIDEO) Tim Allen Discusses How "Thought Police" Has Affected His Stand Up Routine
Actor and comedian Tim Allen is no stranger to getting reprimanded by liberals for some of the things he says.
During the Emmy Awards earlier this year, he even fired a shot at the left for demanding that his popular tv sitcom, "Last Man Standing" be canceled after saying something that triggered the liberals.
“Thank you all very much. Nice to be here. Nice room. Kind of a surprise, I was in the middle of shooting this last season of ‘Last Man Standing’ coming up.
And apparently the powers that be gave us a call. Turned out Meryl Streep, Pacino, and the lovely Helen Mirren just didn’t have the acting chops to handle the segment I’m about to handle.
“They said, ‘who better than a comedian to talk seriously about the integrity of the Emmy vote counting.'
Which is why let’s take a moment to recognize the total professionalism from the accountants at Ernst & young. Ladies and gentlemen, the accountants. Andy Zale, Paul Chin, and thingamajig.
Thingamajig is actually not an accountant, it’s the CEO of Ernst & young. That you very much, see you on television."
Recently he was interviewed on The View and talked about how the new politically correct culture has affected his comedy routine. It's almost as though he has to ask for consent before telling jokes.
According to The Daily Wire,
In an appearance on “The View” on Monday, comedian and actor Tim Allen addressed how the politically correct “thought police” have influenced how he approaches his stand-up comedy in recent years.
Allen, whose popular right-leaning show “Last Man Standing” was famously canceled by ABC in 2017 despite excellent ratings, sparking allegations of political bias on the part of the network, brought up the “thought police” after co-host and fellow comedian Joy Behar asked him about how he handles the “PC culture” that is so strongly influencing comedy these days.
Tim Allen looks back on how standup comedy has changed through the years, discusses the level of political correctness comedians face today: “It is an alarming thing for comedians.” https://t.co/cVclFZQmjA pic.twitter.com/vmmUxg4sD6
