Steve Harvey Condemns “Cancel Culture” Says It’s The Reason He Quit Stand-Up Comedy: Political Correctness Has Killed Comedy
While Steve Harvey has had a successful career in radio and television, a lot of his day one fans remember him more for his years as a comedian. Sadly, it may be a very long time before we see the 64-year-old tv star return to stand-up comedy. While promoting his new ABC courtroom comedy series, Judge Steve Harvey, the comedian and actor claimed that he couldn’t do another stand-up comedy special unless it were the last thing he ever did in Hollywood, due to the sensitive times that we are currently in. Comedy has always been known to push the envelope and cover sensitive topics while making it funny. Unfortunately Steve Harvey doesn’t feel like it’s worth the risk in today’s times. He explained,
“We’re in the cancel culture now. Nobody can say anything he wants to — Chris Rock can’t, Kevin Hart can’t, Cedric the Entertainer can’t, D.L. Hughley can’t. I can go down the list. The only person that can say what they want to say on stage is Dave Chappelle because he’s not sponsor-driven. He’s subscription.”
