Why is there a lack of Right wing comedians?
Radio 4 says it struggles to find right-wing comedians to balance its shows. Why do you think stand-ups don’t tend to be on the right?
‘If you’re trying to attack other races or attack women or alternative sexuality, you’d have to get very intellectual about it. Maybe that’s why: if you’re an intellectual right-wing comedian you actually run out of logic, you have to be some sort of brain-blocked person to shove out that hatred.’
