Stewart Lee - you don't half talk some shit. Political Correctness is a good thing - political correctness gone mad isn't!

Whatever the piddling comments made below - questioning whether he could recall being 4, whether it's funny, who is qualified to comment on society or its ills - the real point is that Stewart Lee is right!

would Lenny Bruce by any chance be an angry American comedian. Rich, white, middle class, born with a silver spoon in his mouth, yet for some reason thinks that everything is messed up?

Yes, he's absolutely right that society has made some important progress in the last 40 years. BUT we shouldn't get complacent, and personally I do believe there's a high number of people belonging to minorities who need to realise these lessons should apply to them too.

The main criticism of this should be that it's on a comedy show and it's not funny. And he comes across as a bit of a twat.

Stewart Lee, what a moron. You attack the phrase 'PC gone mad' by praising PC. Besides which, neither stops racism, it just covers it up. Then you make an uninformed, generalised, bigoted statement about 84% of your audience. Exactly the thing that you were supposed to be complaining about.

I'm all for political correctness, but asking us to accept those dirty Irish Paddys as even remotely human, is asking a little too much.

Rubbish, who remember being four years old in that sort of detail - lies. Lenny Bruce had a few things to say about political correctness. It has caused more rproblems than it has solved.

Guest: White people are vermin (1455 days ago)
Latest comment: Political correctness is bad if it means we, as people of color, have to tolerate white "people," the same vermin who oppress us, attack us and kill us and will do anything to keep their ill-gotten gains out of the hands of nonwhites. And it's time we nonwhites started getting nasty towards them.
