Thai Rivera, the Absolute Best LGBTQ comedian in the world, drops some sober, non-partisan, nearly ruthless truth regarding the recent #CancelCulture bullseye, Shane Gillis, who was fired from SNL before he ever came on because, well, past racisms posted on the social medias.
Rather than moan about another #CancelCulture torching, or, on the other side, shouting out for joy at another successful removal of racisms,
Thai analyses it from a purely comedy market standpoint. The reality, essentially, is, if you are a comedian, most likely, you have no protection from past racisms, bigotisms and whatnot.
However, all is not lost.
From the 1:00 mark to the 2:16 mark of the video, Thai offers what might possibly be the best response to Cancel Culture (though he doesn't use that term), use the spotlight to push your own original content out there. Build your audiences, in other words, off the grid.
From the 3:25 mark to the 4:22 mark, Thai makes an observation about the corporate reality for white comics, making, I assume, more of a case for comics building their audiences off-grid.
From the 9:00 mark to the 9:28 mark Thai makes the final case for not depending on the corporate trough for your comic revenues.
