Comedian’s absurd jokes about Mrs. Clinton
Written by Kate Morgan
Hillary Clinton is in the limelight amid election campaign. Jena Friedman , a comic has given slogan for Mrs. Clinton ‘ Give uninspiring a chance: Settle for Hillary’. Another stand-up Michelle Wolf s has been cutting jokes about the unpopularity of Hillary Clinton.
It’s been an election for comedy about Mrs. Clinton than Trump. It’s an unexpected development. When Trump declared his candidacy, it became a phrase for comedians to announce their good fortune. While Trump joke’s about ‘Saturday Night Live’ has surpassed by the striking boldness of their subject. Mrs. Clinton’s caricatures by Kate McKinnon depicted a stupid body language. It showed rusted gears of political calculation boiling in her mind.
For a wider comic critique, it’s good to consider Mr. Friedman and Ms. Wolf. It raises a question about why large people in the electorate don’t like Mrs. Clinton. What does it mean that the question of likability is a fixture of debate about the first woman presidential candidate from a big party. The comedy revolves around articulation of this hostility and then skewering it.
Ms. Friedman worked at ‘ The Daily Show’ where Ms. Wolf is a correspondent. Along with impressive resumes, including stops at Edinburg Festival Fringe and various jobs at late-night shows, comics are comfortable while turning into areas that are uncomfortable. Their words don’t convey to the converted or traffic in the form of jokes that are expected to get applause. They hardly talk about Mr. Trump.
Ms. Wolf’s first solo show’ So Brave’ openly criticizes political correctness as often as Mr. Trump does. She says ‘ everyone has their own line, and mine is at the bar’.
Ms. Friedman’s show that has the premiere on Seeso and Amazon on 20th October has an extremely bold gendered indecency. She tells jokes about Ebola and abortion that are her obsessions. She slightly leans forward with a flashing smile. She tries to test the audience level of tolerance about her pitch-black humor sense.
When she talks about Mrs. Clinton, she uses a prosecutorial tone. She raises questions why Americans dislike this pioneer politician. She gives suggestions that are inauthentic and insincere. She asks the audience shouting out derogatory words like ‘liar’ and ‘sellout’ (traitor).
Americans give so many reasons to hate Mrs. Clinton. Ms. Friedman says it cannot have any relation with gender. Her tone is unemotional and highly serious. ‘ If only we could gauge American misogyny’ She taunts with a sort of sarcasm. She imagines the perfect social experiment showing percentage of American democracy having tweeting asteroid crash into American democracy than a woman governing.
Ms. Friedman argues that Mrs. Clinton is mainly hated because of gender discrimination trend in American society. Most of the ideas presented by Ms. Friedman’s joke reveal that Mrs. Clinton is unlike.
Eight years ago, Mrs. Clinton was questioned in a debate to address the issue of likability. Her tone became gentle as she told that question hurts her feelings. After that, President Barack Obama gave his opinion that she is likable enough.
