About

We at Is It Funny or Offensive are fascinated with the debate in the zeitgeist about what’s considered “funny” and what’s labeled “offensive,” and until now there hasn’t been a specific destination to host that dialogue. This is that site. When it comes to the funny or offensive debate, extremes range from arguments about freedom of speech to vehement political correctness – with at least 50 shades of gray in between. As with many things, the gray areas are often the most interesting. Few people are indifferent about this topic. We each have our own way of drawing the line, but that line tends to move when suddenly we’re the target of a punch line.

Is It Funny or Offensive is your site. Our contributors will always have something to say on one side or the other, but the site does not. Put simply, the users are the boxers and Is It Funny or Offensive is the ring. We’re not here to police comedy – we’re here to discuss it and understand it.

Is It Funny or Offensive is not an entertainment site, it’s not even a comedy site. Is It Funny or Offensive is a serious criticism and commentary site about comedy. We want you to vote, comment, and share. We want you to identify things that make you wonder about these issues. In turn, you’ll see and hear from people in the comedy world as they share their opinions and experiences.

All are welcome here, except those who clearly exhibit any form of extreme hate — we have a particular set of skills and we will banish you from the site.

Laugh. Cringe. Think.

Welcome to Is It Funny or Offensive.
