*The Dirt on Clean Comedy* by Claudia Stavola

I write this comedy blog because I was kindly asked to, not because I purport to be an expert on anything (except mocking Kim Kardashian on Twitter and losing at least one follower a week). The point is I’m simply sharing my opinions on comedy. Does that mean I’m right? Yes, of course. But it doesn’t make me a “full-blown” expert. An expert is “a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field”. A *full-blown* expert is “a person who has special skill or knowledge in some particular field who has received fellatio to completion”. Duh. There’s an annoying view about comedy that only clean jokes can be smart and funny. First of all, *any* joke, whether clean or dirty, can be smart and funny… as long as it’s written by a Jew. Secondly, I’m not a Jew but as a comedian, I’ve been mistaken for one on several occasions (not for my joke writing but for my lack of any athletic ability).

In addition to touting clean jokes as smarter, many also say dirty or edgy jokes are an “easy laugh”. How is it easier to get a society full of uptight, politically correct, personality censors to laugh at a joke outlining the hypocrisy of religion versus a joke about how women are smarter than men? *Am I right ladies*?
