Comedy Show at Texas Tech Will Teach People It's Okay to Laugh

Last night Texas Tech held a special comedy show on campus that was designed to point out differences between cultures and to encourage students to laugh at one another.

In an effort to unite communities through comedy, Texas Tech University’s Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center is hosting its annual comedy show, “The Most Races Show on Earth,” at 8 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 25) in the Student Union Building’s Allen Theater.

This year’s show will feature three comedians of different nationalities performing fast paced, filler-free comedy: KC Arora of Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Caleb Synan of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and Peter Barrera of NBC’s “Standup for Diversity.” Texas Tech’s improv comedy team, Flying Tortillas, is also set to perform.

The Most Races Show on Earth aims to deliver unique, multicultural stand-up comedy that focuses on tackling ethnic stereotypes and educating students about diversity. Event attendees will be encouraged to laugh at their differences and better understand the message that funny is funny, no matter the culture, creed or color.

After the show, the comedians will take questions from students and discuss their own views on race and comedy.

Admission is free and open to the public.

This really doesn't sound like a fun event or even a good comedy show, but at least Texas Tech is trying. What this event shows me though is that young people are destroying comedy. Comedy isn't the place to learn about diversity and you shouldn't have to tell people that it's okay to laugh at each other.

I remember when great comedians made fun of race, culture, weight, gender, and everything else and no one cared. People just laughed. Now college students are too worried about offending people and trigger warnings. It's pretty sad.

Want to unite people in comedy? Great! Tell people to get over it and to stop being offended by everything.

Obama Calls Out Opponents 

Oppose the Iran deal? President Obama thinks you are crazy according to POLITICO.

Back from a notably uneventful and restful two-week vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Obama was immediately on the road for a short trip here, first to speak at a green energy conference hosted by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, then to raise money for his preferred successor, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

 

Ruddy from the sun, Obama described himself as “refreshed, renewed, recharged — a little feisty.”

And he delivered, recounting the ride he and Reid had just taken from the conference to the fundraiser in his up-armored presidential limo, where they talked about old times and getting back to Washington to “deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.”

Personally, I think it's crazy to think we can trust a regime like Iran that funnels money to terror organizations.
