Is Political Correctness Killing Comedy?

Is Political Correctness Killing Comedy?

Louis CK, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Tim Allen, Tracy Morgan ALL got hit with it!

ABC is accused of cancelling Last Man Standing for Free Speech reasons & Seinfeld said that he will no longer play college campuses because the audiences are too PC. Louis CK also received backlash for controversial jokes he used on a Saturday Night Live appearance.  Since then, it appears that audiences around the globe have become more unable to handle a joke.  As a culture, have we become over-serious and hypersensitive to “political incorrectness?”

Anand asked several comedians about their thoughts and how the PC culture (Anti-culture?) is affecting their work.
