Comedy as Social Commentary

Comedy has always been one of the best tools for social commentary, to say that something is wrong with the way we operate. In this clip, deceased comedian Patrice O'Neal made a point about how the media latched onto certain stories and don't give as much attention to others.

The actual amount of laughs in this clip is kind of meh, but around the one-minute mark there's a wide-eye "holy shit" moment when you realize what he just did. It makes you think.

If you want to watch a funnier clip, below is Patrice talking about why men cheat on their girlfriends.
