“For years now, American comedians have confused comedy with being cruel or crass, but our history proves that humor can be playful instead of poisonous.”
ORANGE COUNTY, CA , USA , April 6, 2022 — In the wake of the Oscars incident involving Will Smith and Chris Rock, one veteran of the comedy industry says the altercation is an example of how toxic some corners of comedy have become – but it can change.
Adam Christing is the CEO of CleanComedians.com
“The problem isn’t Chris Rock or Will Smith. It’s a comedy culture issue. For years now, American comedians have confused comedy with being cruel or crass, but our history proves that humor can be playful instead of poisonous. Think Will Rogers, Betty White, Jim Gaffigan.”
According to Christing, whose Clean Comedians® company requires its performers to avoid Profanity, Prejudice, and Politics:
“We need to remember that ‘fun’ is not a 4-letter word. Laughter can lift people and bring them together with positive humor.”
