Some millennials: Comedy is not funny when it is punching down.

Anthony Jeselnik: Fuck you and hold my beer. In fact hold all my beers because I'm going to punch way way down for an hour and you are going to die.

I can only speak for myself, but if someone is "punching down" to a disadvantaged group, and simultaneously wants to literally punch said group, it's not comedy.

Nobody takes Anthony Jeselnik seriously when he says Marlee Matlin should have won a Grammy in the Special Olympics, or that Snoop Dogg stole his wallet. He's an Archie Bunker-- he's satirizing those things.

Some millennials disagree and want to take everything at face value.

That's because they rode the damn bus instead of walking 5 miles uphill both ways. Otherwise they'd think a little.
