Kenan deserves more respect. He is solid. I think maybe coming from being a child actor and then being on the cast for so long has diluted his brand. Or at least the perception of his brand. What's up with that? He deserves a lifetime Emmy and he's barely middle age. Yay Kenan!

Ricky is by far the funniest comedy because he doesn't care about "being popular" whereas American's are so obsessed with popularity than they let it rule their life. Ricky is funny because he makes jokes about everything, everything... we have to laugh more and if we overthink every joke and worry if it will hurt everyone or one person then we won't tell jokes at all. Ricky is much smarter than most people. To be a very good comedian you have to be super smart, wit smart and not dumb yourself down for stupid people. Kumail kept picking on Ricky because he knows he not a pinch as funny as Ricky. He's an actor, I would never think of him as a comedian or funny because he's not. Ricky is in a league of his own and some are threatened by his talent and unique and fresh approach to comedy.

But they also had great insights and were able to question each other and expound on viewpoints without sounding preachy or confrontational.

Kenan says people just say hi, but I don't even watch snl, but I'd probably not be cool if I ran into him. I'd awkwardly sing out "I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes" 🤣 and he can't say that hasn't ever happened before.

I think Ricky nails something vital that gets missed these days. Just because your character takes a point of view, doesn’t mean the author does. Also trying to tweak your comedy so that it doesn’t offend anyone would be a futile endeavor. There will ALWAYS be someone who is offended.

@L. Hettrick people don't make up their mind from a joke. A racist prison is going to be racist irrespective of whether he hears some joke related to a minority that solidifies his beliefs. As Ricky's already pointed out, people don't realise that the target of the joke is what matters not the subject.

Kumail holding Ricky accountable was amazing. And the editor who'd always pan out to show the blank, increasingly agitated faces of an entire PoC/marginalized panel whenever Ricky would say things like "I can tell a joke about race without it being racist" was golden. Bc he gets to be the authority on that. I could understand strands of thought within Ricky's points, but he just can't fully understand the negative impact of his comedy bc he doesn't have a single oppressed identity at all. (Aside experiencing fatphobia, but that's one discriminated identity that - at least for him - was changeable/in his control, versus an immovable trăit he was just borne with.) We all can be joked with and about, and it becomes unifying, but he rarely does it that way.

@Kaalyn there shouldn't be any line in the first place! What "negative impact" are you talking about? You think a person becomes a racist when he hears a comedian joke about race? Anyways If you are not intelligent enough to understand where the joke is targeted, don't watch it then he is not forcing you to. There are very few sane celebrities left in this world and I am glad Ricky's one of them.

@Chris Grady I understand his jokes and what irony is. I think he falls back on "jokes" "British sarcasm" and "irony" too much when he's crossed the line. It's also very easy to be hilarious without hurting anyone. He chooses to take the risk every time. That's on him.

I noticed this too. It seemed like they were all in on the fun and he must've said something that really turned the tide. And i don't think it was the questioning Kumail did. That was important and I don't think they would've been put off by that part. It really felt like something came just before that made everyone uncomfortable and less tolerant of his answers.

I think Kumail had a great question for Ricky. I'd answer it thusly: Nietzsche and the Nazis. He said some beautiful, articulate things and commented on the genealogy of religion and tried to progress people past dogmatism. His work was picked up by the Nazis and abused and twisted. I don't think that he, or other artists, should censor their work because there is a risk it could be abused by shitty people.

I understand kumails point; I have seen comedians just make a Mexican joke or gay joke or woman joke without any underlying viewpoint other than, "haha stereotype", which racists, misogynists, xenophobes etc... will love bc it makes their viewpoint not only "funny" but also seemingly publically accepted. Whereas Ricky has always had a endgame to his jokes and tries to hold a mirror to the audience.
