These mutherfuckers are the epitome of guts, aren’t they?
Comedy Central might censor every image of the Prophet Muhammad on “South Park,” yet the network is developing a whole animated series around Jesus Christ.
As part of the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), Comedy Central is set to announce “JC,” a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic father” and live a regular life in New York City.
In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, “the ultimate fish out of water,” tries to adjust to life in the big city.
“In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable,” said Comedy Central’s head of original programming Kent Alterman.
When asked if the show might draw some fire, especially coming on the heels of the network’s decision to censor the Muslim faith’s religious figure on “South Park,” Alterman said its too early in the show’s development to be concerned about such matters.
“We don’t even know what the show is yet,” he said.
Like all Comedy Central executives, Alterman declined to address the recent controversy over “South Park,” where the network aired a heavily redacted episode after the show’s creators were threatened by an extremist Islamic Web site.
“JC” is produced by Reveille (“The Office”), Henrik Basin, Brian Boyle (“American Dad”), Jonathan Sjoberg and Andreas Ohman.
Comedy Central needs to put out an APB for its balls. Maybe if the infidels raised some hell for a change, they’d get the message. This is the same network that prides itself with snarky insults at conservatives, Jews, Christians, and anything remotely patriotic. Liberal mealy-mouthed assclowns like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have never been censored or discouraged from stating their opinions. But, in the new world order of political correctness, the last bastion of bigotry are Jews and gentiles. I mean, if you’re going to be edgy, hip, and unafraid to spread the insults, do it across the board. Nothing should be sacred, not even Islamic cows.
Here’s the contact information to the big, brave executives at Comedy Central.
