A Tribute to Banned Comedy

It's important to remember that free speech is not about protecting ideas that are clean, nice, and popular. Comedy is not possible without malcontents, outcasts, and eccentrics. Below are some of my favorite moments of banned comedy:

1. Bill Hicks' banned performance

2. Lenny Bruce talks about his obscenity trial

3. The Boondocks: Hunger Strike
