If you’re gonna call yourself “Comedy Central,” it’s probably a good idea to make sure you know what comedy actually is.
As Twitchy told you, Curtis Cook, stand-up comedian and writer for Comedy Central’s “Jim Jefferies Show,” reacted to the news that Anthony Kennedy is retiring from the Supreme Court with a shamelessly demented death wish:
I wish this Kennedy had been shot instead of the other ones. https://t.co/2pIEWf5Jdn

We shouldn’t be too hard on him, though. Because the evidence is pretty powerful that Comedy Central is just not a place that knows how to be funny:

This is hilarious. But not in the way you intended.

You're supposed to make me laugh, not make me laugh at you.

Supremely fire your social media person, and hire someone with both a sense of comedic delivery and an understanding of what audience alienation is. https://t.co/gap8tLBDan
