Do people really think comedians just get up on stage and say something controversial to get a laugh?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Who said they do? But it is certainly a part of a lot of comedians armoury.

Well it's implied in the comparisons people make to comedians when people are discussing what can be joked about.

But the comedy thing is key here, if something is funny, however controversial, it has merit for being funny.

Fact is, Ace's comments were not encased in humour, and were just offensive. A joke has to be funny, no?

It’s a matter of opinion!

What’s funny to one might not be funny to someone else and so on.

Absolutely agree.

No one has the right to determine what is funny and intention surely has to be a key part of whether the person has done wrong.

Doesn’t stop the comment being criticised but ultimately this is about whether it’s a banning offence I guess.

I would reiterate, I did not complain, merely expressed my opinion

He’s banned, move on.

Joking about battering women is obviously not what Admin wants on this site.


NEXT.

That's a shame, I always found his brand of absurd humour quite funny. Humour is very subjective.

I'm sure he'll be back again, Admins are smart people running a business and posters who direct lots of traffic to their site are going to be treated with a bit of favouritism.
