Barry Humphries Bans Lazy Comedians From Using The F-Word
THE great Barry Humphries has made a rule for the comics appearing at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
“I have found, without wanting to sound prudish, that too many young comedians — many of great brilliance — still resort to the F-word to get a laugh. So there’s only one rule: I’m banning it. It will be a good discipline for them — and it might be a relief to members of the public. Festival is the only F-word we’re using next year.”
It’s censorship dammit:
