I'm not sure about the pedophelia jokes by ricky gervais, but again i would take a guess that he's mocking the pedophile. not the kid.
Theres no way around it. All this guys have made insensitive jokes about touchy subjects with no remorse. Gervais laughs as the whole thing. They makes jokes out of the most unconfortables situations of humanity. Bill Hicks work in particular was insanely offensive. I have never seen anything that made people feel as uncomfortable.
The fact that most of Tosh's work sucks should not be relevant. If comedians, who are the only people that can say whatever they want have to be politically correct now, we are fucked.
