Just for Laughs now a political festival

- August 7th, 2012

David Suzuki 2I’ve thought of David Suzuki as a funny man for years but mainly due to what he has to say on the need for Canada to throw it’s economy into the ditch and sign onto a global socialist project like Kyoto.

Now it appears he will try actual comedy at a Just for Laughs event in Toronto known as JFL42.

Look, we’ve all known for years that comedians are political and with people like Louis CK showing up, the roster will be reliably left wing as it has been in the past, but seriously David Suzuki?

Several years ago now I sat in a news conference with “Suzuk,” as he calls himself, and listened as he told everyone he was done with traveling. From now on he said he would only be showing up at events outside of BC via teleconference because he couldn’t justify his massive carbon foot print.

Of course he’s never kept that promise, as much as I wish he had.

Now here’s the great comedy stylings of Suzuk!

    Let’s all become mushrooms, and live in the dark! How many lights were on in a studio to make this crap! If they do not practice what they preach, and actually use more power to get their warped message across! OMG how stupid do they think we are!

    Let’s all become mushrooms and live in the dark. To make this ad, how many lights did it take. They do not practice what they preach, but expect us to comply. Baaaa

    Creepy!
    I wonder what his comedy debut will centre around? Comparing humans to rats? Or just how funny it would be if humans lived like them?

    The fact is you can be an environmentalist and be centre-right. The UK Conservatives support action on climate change and are conservative.

    Many people on Sun News don’t realize that 2003 and before that there was a party called the Progressive Conservatives. They were conservative on economic issues, centrist on social issues and for wanting action on the environment. Seems to me that they sounded moderate conservative which the Sun News network despises.

    The new PC party can be found at pcparty.org. It is not bad to be a progressive-conservative or a moderate conservative you just need policies where most Canadians agree on. We don’t have to follow the USA on everything. Our constitution was based on a strong federal government. Their constitution was based on states rights.

    Facts are facts and I feel that Quebec and Atlantic Canada would support a red tory party over a blue tory party. Thank you!

    You have to be a blind slave to conservative anti-science dogma to be denying global warming anymore. Recent studies show greatly accelerated climate change and you only have to look at the violent and extreme weather the past few years to know the truth of it.

    Jusr for a laugh, I’d like to point out that someone pointed me towards Louis CK on youtube to see his acts.
    BUT, I must have missed something about it because i didn’t find him funny at all while his Lenny Bruce or Mort Sahl style failed big time as he belaboured the points and had a predictible ending.
    I was told that he is really big in stand-up, but , either I don’t get it or society is starving for a break from all the depressing News and the stress in general.

    KNB: I just want to point out the difference between “climate change” and “man made climate change”. The climate is changing, that is a fact, has been for about 4.3 Billion years. The man made part is the real question, and as far as real science goes, there is no proof of man’s impact on the climate. After all, Relativity is still a theory, and there is a lot more evidence to support it. So I wouldn’t act all high and mighty just yet.
