Nick Mullen’s controversies with conservative media
Nick Mullen is a daring comedian. Because of this, he is prone to controversies, backlash, and even political issues. Sometimes, these issues end up getting funny. One of these instances involves Alex Jones, right-wing conspiracy theorist and the show host of Info Wars.
The comedian likes to satirize mothers in his blog posts. Named Nicole Mullen, he posts humorous essays on Thought Catalog, an online youth magazine. Nich Mullen was active there for years, and during that time, he made sarcastic entries with questionable titles. He wrote about kids consumed by pelicans, sending letters to Iran, and politically incorrect slurs.
But Info Wars picked up one of his satirical essays about abortion, a critical political and ethical issue in the United States. In this essay, Nick Mullen (in the voice of Nicole) said that abortion feels good and sexually satisfying. He joked that, during an abortion, it feels good to have the birth canal checked and scooped like a cup of ice cream at night. There, Alex Jones read Nick Mullen’s post as if it was true. The section of his episode was horrifying without the proper context. But when you realize how Alex Jones fell into the trap of satire, how amusing!
Alex Jones then connected Nick Mullen’s testimonial article to Satanism and hallucinating drugs. Nobody from his team at InfoWars admits this awkward mistake.
Nick Mullen’s controversies with left-wing audiences
But Nick Mullen also annoys the American liberal left, primarily the socialists, the LGBT community, and the “social justice warriors.” As mentioned earlier, his comedy provokes the sensibilities of ideologues.
In 2017, Nick Mullen found himself attacked on Twitter through complaints by a mob of leftists. His jokes triggered them to the core, and they wanted to kick him out of social media. They also cited a Medium article listing Nick Mullen’s supposed misdeeds, but Ron Swanson, the author, later took it down.
On his Twitter page, Ron Swanson said that, as a gay person, he is afraid of straight men. He compared them to lions, whom he described as potential killers and not trustworthy. Ron Swanson said that he should not make jokes about racism and rape.
Nick Mullen’s defenders say that his jokes are not offensive at all. After all, laughter is natural. There are times when you laugh randomly and not out of spite. Like hunger and other behaviors, one can laugh no matter what the joke or remark may be.
But the listeners decide to listen to a comedian and find interest in their taste in humor. They say that comedians should not get barred from the free market of ideas and speech.
They also say that it is crucial to consider the context behind Nick Mullen’s jokes. He usually targets sensitive leftists in his comedy skits because he finds their reactions funny. Nick also pokes at the elites who preach about feminism, climate change, and other liberal talking points. But his followers reiterate that he is not a racist and bigoted person.
Unfortunately, Twitter suspended Nick Mullen’s account years later. Time will tell how Nick Mullen would recover his access to his social media fans on Twitter.
The fate of Nick Mullen and his comedic career shows the tense political climate in the West. For example, a debate about the freedom of expression in Toronto ended early because of a mob of college students. Although they could intelligently engage with opponents, they chose to finish it violently. Clips of the protests angered netizens, turning them into a meme.
The Smugglypuff image from that event serves as a right-wing talking point on how the left dislikes open discussions and sharing of ideas. In a similar vein, Nick Mullen became ostracized on social media because of his speech and expressions.
Nick Mullen’s followers, in their disdain and disappointment, compare far-left people to their far-right enemies. After all, they are both unwilling to listen, yet they are sensitive and intolerant. The opposing camps also share their hatred of opposing views and love for censorship.
Nick Mullen and the world of stand-up comedy
It seems that Nick Mullen will get remembered by his fans as an icon in stand-up comedy.
The stand-up comedy genre began in the 19th century. Mark Twain and his fellow “lecturers” toured the United States to perform and entertain their audiences. These comedians used music as they delivered lines to one another. But Frank Frey from the New York Palace Theatre amused his viewers by himself. His solo performances became trendy in the following decades.
During the Great Depression (in the 1930s), the Borscht Belt comedic group performed monologues in this style. They applied typical storylines and scenes as foundations for their comedic shows. But their audiences only included the elite crowds who could afford the theatre fees.
Bob Hope would make stand-up comedy a trend enjoyed by millions of Americans then. In 1938, he hosted a radio show where he would deliver a comedic monologue. Most of his viewers were American soldiers, making him an international icon.
Aside from promoting this solo comedic style, Bob Hope also innovated in making his jokes relatable to the masses while making his job less daunting. He had staff and researchers who write jokes about celebrities, national news, the military, and his amusing experiences. Comedy was no longer generic and repeatable—the people expected more.
After the Second World War, television became mainstream in American households. Stand-up comedy found its way on this phenomenal appliance, and this entertainment genre continued to evolve. Instead of imitating the old speaking style in comedy shows, performers in this decade became more conversational.
They talked about politics, cultural shifts, and the norms at the time. This trend inspired a new generation of comedians who would bring stand-up comedy to its familiar form now.
In the 1950s, there was a stand-up comedian who wanted to tear down America’s traditional attitudes. Lenny Bruce spoke at strip clubs and local events, but his comedic talent pushed him to the national scene. He criticized religion, conservative views on sexuality, and the prohibition of drugs. Because of his crude humor and behavior, he got banned from television and faced criminal charges. The fall of his career pushed him to a drug overdose and consequent death in 1966. Nonetheless, his legacy would get remembered by comedians in the next decade.
During the 1960s, the United States went through a turbulent cultural shift. Stand-up comedy during this decade reflects this transformation. Comedians like Mike Nichols and Bob Newhart introduced “improvised” self-talk filled with jokes and acted scenes. In these performances, they portrayed people who talk to someone over the phone, for example.
George Carlin, an admirer of Lenny Bruce, followed his example as he became a famous stand-up comedian on television. He mocked popular game shows, attacked the Vietnam War, and criticized his faith. George Carlin also said cursed words on television, causing him to get jailed.
