Tim Allen, a man who refuses to quietly vanish like the rest of his Home Improvement castmates, is undertaking a new, deeply Tim Allen project: A docudrama called No Safe Spaces. Can you guess what it might be about?
Allen, who frequently bemoans life as a right-wing fish in the (ostensibly) liberal pond of Hollywood, will join forces with fellow conservatives Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager for the film, the premise of which appears to be three middle-aged white men shaking loose the shackles of PC culture for the good of comedy, specifically on college campuses.
“Nothing kills comedy quite like people who are constantly offended,” Carolla told the New York Post. “It’s impossible to be funny if we’re not allowed to poke fun at each other and that’s what’s happening with a new generation of people who seem to be offended for a living.” It is?
In a promo video on the movie’s inevitable Indiegogo campaign, Carolla—a dusty Man Show sign looming in the background—offers up his take on the crippled state of humor today:
Allen, for his part, has a lot of free time on his hands after his sitcom, Last Man Standing, was canceled last May after six seasons. According to ABC, the cancellation was due to its cost; Allen maintains it was because of his politics. Allen is so convinced that he’s being martyred for his views that he’s compared his plight to those living in “1930s Germany.” Is this an example of the sort of indispensable humor that “PC culture” has killed?
