I do this for a living & if you’re an adult & find Holocaust jokes edgy & hi-larious there’s something wrong with you. Also in *this* climate, if the target of the joke is “Jewish leaders terrified of another genocide after one happened in living memory” it’s especially unfunny.
We’ve all been there as teenagers. Ha ha aren’t we edgy & shocking. And then we see the faces of people who’ve lived a little more when we shoot our mouths off & we feel humbled & ashamed. Then we grow up. If I suggested this in a writer’s room, I’d rightly never work again.
Here’s a lesson for new comedy writers: are you punching up or down? A clue: victims of the Holocaust - definitely punching down. And if you’re going to be a smartarse & push boundaries, would you tell this joke in front of a Holocaust survivor? No? Then shut the fuck up.
Basically, don’t make a joke a racist would find funny. And I’m pretty sure Nazis would be in stitches over that one, so well done lads.
Sorry I’m not done. This has got under my skin. There’s rebelling against your family & then there’s laughing at their murders. These twerps are setting a standard of discourse that says “this is an acceptable way to talk to & about Jews”. They are capable of real damage.
