In today’s hypersensitive environment of political correctness, it seems like nobody can even take a joke. We’re told that speech is violence and that certain subjects are off limits for humor. But comedian Lou Perez believes that, now more than ever, we have a responsibility to hold a mirror up to society using the oldest and best form of social criticism: jokes. Perez and Matt Kibbe discuss their new comedy series, “Comedy Is Murder,” produced by Free the People. They take a look at the first two episodes, which tackle the absurdity of gender politics among homicide detectives and question whether gun owners are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend their families.
