Comedian Carl LaBove’s Take on Daniel Tosh’s Rape Joke Tirade [VIDEO -NSFW]

Carl LaBove is an Original Outlaw of Comedy who toured with Sam Kinison , has appeared on HBO, The Tonight Show and last month at the Great Adventure Brew Ha Ha with Uncle Floyd, Big Joe Henry and Steve Trevelise. Carl was nice enough to share some of his thoughts on the Daniel Tosh incident with our audience.

Well, the wind has picked up another ember and blown this small fire of controversy upon our roofs. What to do about these comedians, who in the heat of battle, speak such vile, that persons are emotionally harmed enough to write, blog and picket to get the performer banned or fired, tarnishing the many years of his or her struggle, ultimately ending the safety in their financial success.

Back in the day, if the court jester insulted the King, he was beheaded. So, I would imagine, with that in mind, the jester would work on his silly little act tirelessly for weeks, asking friends for feedback and honing his timing on humorous stories about the recent jousting match’s or the state of the plague in the surrounding townships, to make all laugh and rejoice in the strength and leadership of their King, alas, insuring the satisfaction from the court and future requests for more performances.

If you’ve never seen Carl’s comedy act, here’s clip of his standup act (NOT SAFE FOR WORK LANGUAGE):

 

But, even with all his planning and preparation, the unexpected would, and did, happen. While performing under such pressure, relying on his skill and memory to guide him through this arduous task, a lone voice caught his attention. Losing his momentum and thought, he scrambled to regain the laughter of the crowd. Again, he heard someone mutter, just loud enough that the others could hear it also. It was the dreaded statement of disapproval for his performance. The crowd reacted with loud whispers and those around the King squirmed in uncomfortable displeasure. As the sweat rolled down his face from under his tight dunce hat, and with fear running through his veins as the thoughts of death due to the Kings displeasure danced feverishly though his mind , he lashed out and made fun of the rude and cruel speaker of such a callous statement.

A hush filled the room and hands that had been clapping moments earlier, where now used to cover their mouths. The crowd then turned, in nervous anticipation, to the King and as he rose up, all bowed and backed away to the walls, leaving the room empty and silent. “Off with his head!” the King screamed! “No one talks to the Kings senile and decrepit grandmother like that”! As the guards pulled him from the room, he saw his tormentor, or heckler as it was, talking to herself, peeing on the floor and stealing meat from the banquet table. It wasn’t personal, shit just happens sometimes. His last thoughts, as the blade came down upon his neck was probably, “I could have handled that a little differently.”

 

I’m sure Tosh is a professional who works nightly on his craft, slinging jokes and stories in his home club, taking notes afterwords to use for future albums and sketch ideas for his TV show. In the heat of his performance, a woman said something, he reacted, things where said, she was offended, it made the news, we are all talking about it. Folks, we have all said something when stressed, that we wish we could take back. We have all overreacted to a situation when our feelings have been hurt, or an old wound has been reopened. It’s both their faults for making me write about this. I’ve got better things to do. Make nice Tosh, and send her a card and flowers. “Sorry dear, that joke was funny in my head, but didn’t come out right. I screwed up.” Then she should twitter, “Daniel Tosh is a nice guy. He hurt my feelings and we made a big deal out of it. But all is forgiven now.” Or,  maybe for the betterment of these politically correct times,  show business should cut his head off on national television!
