Comedy has long been a place to transgress the shades of grey.
To speak about the unspoken, to find humour where it seems quite bleak.
But, and this is one massive but, with the flowing allegations of serious sexual violence starting in the entertainment industry and rippling further, now is not the time to ‘test your new material’.
This is exactly what comedian and actor, Chris Rock, attempted to do at a recent gig, last Thursday night.
According to Page Six, Rock made relentless jokes about sexual harassment, even after friends said he should move on.
“They cry rape because they want money,” the 52-year-old said.
