Comedy has been in exile and what we’ve had lately has been a shadow of its former self. Jokes can still be made, but they must only be jokes about certain things. Making jokes about subjects considered to be “protected” is career suicide, and laughing about them may get you “canceled” whether you’re in the public eye or not.

Allen is currently the only known mainstream conservative comedian still going strong in the industry, with his show appropriately named “Last Man Standing,” besides Matt Stone and Trey Parker of “South Park.”
