Edgy or Just Offensive?
17 December 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Steve Byrne has been pretty funny for many years, and could be considered one of the biggest stand-up comedians today. But this time, something seems different. His jokes are now anti-woman, anti-fat woman, anti-environmentalists, jokes about "flaming gay" men and "full-blown" AIDS. Did Byrne have a bad relationship? He seems bitter and has reduced himself to just rattling off ignorant stereotypes.

Now, this is sort of his shtick, especially because he sees even his own family as stereotypical. But does that excuse the jokes about black people loving fried chicken and being slow at fast food restaurants?

His Obama impression also somehow turns into Bill Clinton reciting Boyz II Men lyrics. Um, you might want to work on that a bit.
