John P’Hurley Comments On Comedy

Conservative comedian and actor John O’Hurley, known for his role as J. Peterman on NBC’s hit show “Seinfeld,” recently spoke out against “woke culture” and its detrimental effect on television comedy.

O’Hurley’s comments come after the show’s star, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, blasted the political Left for ruining television comedy with their relentless push for political correctness.

“Well, guess what — where is it? This is the result of the extreme left and P.C. crap, and people worrying so much about offending other people,” Seinfeld said. “Now they’re going to see stand-up comics because we are not policed by anyone. The audience polices us. We know when we’re off track. We know instantly, and we adjust to it instantly.”

“But when you write a script and it goes into four or five different hands, committees, groups — ‘Here’s our thought about this joke,’” he added. “Well, that’s the end of your comedy.”

In an interview with Fox News, O’Hurley lamented the loss of our ability to be silly and poke fun at ourselves, a sad result of the extreme Left’s influence on society. He pointed out that even Seinfeld, known for his clean and family-friendly comedy, refuses to perform on college campuses due to their “mean-spirited” atmosphere.

O’Hurley went on to explain that historically, ethnic groups would be overjoyed to be included in our culture’s comedic repertoire. However, in today’s world, a select group of individuals believe they know better and actively seek to deprive others of this type of humor.

He criticized the current state of comedy as being more focused on sarcasm and mockery rather than innocent, silly humor. O’Hurley’s comments echo those of Seinfeld, who recently stated that television comedy has been hindered by constant policing and excessive sensitivity to offending others.

The widespread censorship in today’s comedy scene is a direct result of “woke culture” and its constant push for political correctness. The once cherished tradition of satire and self-deprecation has been replaced with fear and constant monitoring for fear of offending someone.

It’s a sad reality that today’s comedians can no longer freely express themselves without facing backlash and reprimand. O’Hurley’s words serve as a reminder of the harm that “woke culture” has caused, slowly stripping away our freedom of speech and expression.
