Michael Richards Goes On Racial Tirade

I didn't see anything in print yet, but it is on CNN video.

Apparently, he was being heckled at the Laugh Factory in LA, and he went on a tirade using the N word and saying that he was so rich, he could have anyone in the audience arrested. Also, he said that 50 years ago, the blacks in the audience would have been hung upside down.

I wonder if he's also an anti-dentite.

I guess the Van Buren boys were just an offshoot of the Klan.

If he's that rich, why is he doing crappy stand-up at the Laugh Factory?

Calm down everyone. It was just a botched joke about Bush's Iraq policy. Move along now...

I agree with Cleaver - he'll blame it on Alchohol. If it worked for one celeb - it will probably work for another one.

Why would you hang someone upside down?

Working on his act, you do realize that even Chris Rock tries out material in shitty clubs.

That's true. All the comics do this for their comedy specials, comedy tours, and other performances. They see what works and what doesn't and they add jokes or take them out to nail their performance.

I know Jay Leno does this at a Comedy Club down by me in Redondo Beach. I forget the name of the place but Jay, Ray Romano, and a few others are almost always on the bill when I go by there.

Give the guy a break. He was just upset that the black man stole his mop.
