Left Loses a Late-Night Comedic Hack

The Left are replete with comedic hacks. They no longer know what comedy is, because of the politically correct nature of their comedy sets.

Larry Wilmore is truly a comedic hack, and the perfect example of a guy who was promoted simply because he’s a Leftist. Like Samantha Bee, Kamau Bell, and John Oliver to name a few, Wilmore is simply not funny.

Great comedy transcends the political ideology of the audience. In other words, funny is funny. Some comedy is colloquial, some is cultural. But for the most part, making people laugh is what the great ones easily do, and the good ones can do from time to time. Wilmore needs a laugh trak.

Leftist are used to the “easy” laugh. Anything anti-Conservative is deemed funny. But that can only last so long, when the comedy is actually NOT funny. Kamau Bell has been slated for least two shows, and they have failed miserably. Samantha Bee is my next choice to hit the bricks. For now, it’s Larry Wilmore.

Comedy Central has cancelled The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. The late night show has been plagued with low ratings, and well, bad comedy since its inception.

Wilmore’s show replaced Stephen Colbert’s Colbert Report in 2015. Wilmore’s show started slow and ended slower. Thankfully the last show airs on Thursday. Leave it to Wilmore to claim racism was the reason for the cancellation.

“I’m really grateful to Comedy Central, Jon Stewart, and our fans to have had this opportunity,” Wilmore said in a statement. “But I’m also saddened and surprised we won’t be covering this crazy election or ‘The Unblackening’ as we’ve coined it. And keeping it 100, I guess I hadn’t counted on ‘The Unblackening’ happening to my time slot as well.”

Wilmore apparently thought his show would be graded on a curve?

Network president Kent Alterman told USA Today that the program’s ratings were the main factor behind the decision to cancel the series.

“Even as the show has evolved creatively … it hasn’t seemed to connect with our audience, which is disconcerting and disappointing to us,” Alterman told the outlet. “When we took a hard look —  especially after the conventions, where we also didn’t see any traction we were hoping for — we didn’t have enough evidence to justify committing to another year.”

The fact Comedy Central hung in for a year is impressive. My bet is Obama got Wilmore the reprieve he wouldn’t normally get.
