Your doing it again you agree with me and then retract it. Make up your mind? Do you admit there is a fear for many comedians using islamic material or not?
Another question I have already answered.
I'll try again.
I do not think there is any fear of comedians using Islamic jibes up to a point - I think many would be wary of lampooning the prophet.
As for making my mind up - that has been my consistent response to this line of enquiry since you first raised the issue. I see many comics too scared to tackle other topics, some are edgier than others. I doubt Frankie Boyle's stuff would sit well in a Victoria Wood routine.
But some DO
joke about Islam, a fair bit - if you don't know about them it's because you haven't looked.
Dont make strange obscure examples of tepid humour to prove a point, then tell me your not up to speed on popular humour..
It's just the actual truth - I don't watch much comedy. I don't see how you can object to that - I just don't. Live with it.
Despite this I can think of many examples. They aren't all obscure - Jimmy Carr is as mainstream as it gets.
I don't watch him - I hate him really, but he's so omnipresent you can't help but get a dose every so often. And some of his material has mocked aspects of Islam.
I didn't think "all the blow-themselves up motherf*ckers will realise the minute they die they were suckers" was tepid. Lines like "we better be serious and show them respect/their god is mysterious and barely insect" isn't as sophisticated as Monty Python - but it's just as cutting really.
I mean, one could argue The Life of Brian is pretty tepid - it's not Jerry Sadowitz is it?
And this is almost ready...

You have to do more than pick out a phrase, out of context, to prove I am a bigot.
I'm under no obligation to provide proof - this is not a maths problem. The reason I think you're a bigot is because you seem to me to be a bigot. That's why I hold my opinion. For evidence of my opinion, I hold up the things you have said. That's not proof but it'll do for me to form an opinion. I might be wrong - but your testimony and attitude on this issue have me pretty convinced.
Prove "All the blow-themselves-up motherf*ckers..." is tepid.
You can't - it's an opinion.
Proof is for maths.
