regardless of what anyone thinks about wolf, the partial reasons for the cancellation (poor taste abortion jokes and horrified netflix subscribers cancelling their accounts) are fucking sad. comedy is meant to offend and provoke

Saw her live in Portland a few weeks ago and she was amazing. I wish more of her brilliance would have been apparent in The Break. I suspect she wasn't ready professionally for a talk show despite her writing exp w/Meyers & the Daily Show.

Well hope it counts as a learning experience for her not as an avenue that will be closed in future to her.
I mean just hoping that it doesn't work that this not working out means less opportunities in future. I did enjoy quite a bit of this.

well it was petitioned for cancellation yeah.

that petition predates the airing of the show

Oh lol yeah. There was an article I read today which I cannot find but it mentioned the abortion salute causing many to cancel or threaten cancellation of Netflix accounts.
Who knows if it was bullshit tho

i think the problem is that the abortion salute and other content would have been too edgy for the resistance type viewers the show would need to have attracted to be a success. when they go low we go high, respectability politics being a big feature of that worldview

honestly I think most people forgot who she was by the second week of the show.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 20 August 2018 23:37 (three months ago) Permalink

most people still have no idea who she is

btw, it may be worth noting that her live act was completely free of political humor (unless you count gender/race politics).

Does abortion fall under gender topics? Could see it being a central issue unless its 100% assured available.

Darin did you see her live? Feel like she would excel there

Ross, Tuesday, 21 August 2018 15:28 (three months ago) Permalink

Yeah - saw her at Revolution Hall in Portland, OR. Great show.

Darin, Tuesday, 21 August 2018 18:18 (three months ago) Permalink

Damn gotta catch her next time cool

There was a Netflix special last year too, on top of the series, Nice Lady.
