i've heard a fair bit of standup from Carlin, Gervais, Chappelle and Prior (not a lot, but a decent enough amount) and i gotta disagree Bel. This was much worse than anything they would have done. seriously a rape joke? It's totally inapropriate on every level. and one actually directed at a woman in the audience? turrible.
and to touch on the Eddie Murphy. Ya lots of his material now would be way offside specifically the gay jokes, but still i don't even think Murphy would have gone with rape jokes back in his day.
