There’s a saying “treat others as you would like to be treated”. And for all the funny and light-hearted parts of this show, I walked out with that saying ringing in my ears.

Why? Because what started as an analysis of a Christopher Hitchens book descended into a mockery of all things men, including one “gag” along the lines of “men should be killed if their sexual performance is bad”. Seriously?

Here’s a piece of advice - more men would respect more women if they stopped man-shaming and being hypocrites. This seems to be a worrying theme in comedy and I think we should remember that we’re striving for EQUALITY.

Which doesn’t mean mocking men or saying they have some sort of “privilege” to quote part of the show. For all you know, most men in the audience might have mental health problems, or one or two of them might have just lost their jobs, or end up committing suicide before 45.

I’d like to hope that most “woke” comedians would understand this line of thought, but just to re emphasise... equality means respecting and understanding each other. Equality does not mean man-shaming.
