Stand Up for Comedy

Wanna read something great about the ongoing fight to reform our Human Rights Commissions?

Start here, at Deborah Gyapong's blog, and follow the links to Denyse O'Leary's blog. Gyapong and the blogs she links to are describing a fundraising event in Toronto for standup comedian Guy Earle who is being taken before one of our lovely Human Rights Commissions for offending a lesbian heckler in a club where she was making his "night" (ie. being a class A jerk). I mean, good grief!! If we can't enjoy a night out at a comedy club because our comedians have been silenced what is this country coming to!!!

Go here to donate to Earle's defense fund. If you live in the Toronto area, see if you can show up for this event. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!!
