it sounds like comedy of exaggeration to me. Do you really think any of her audience think "Hey ... neat idea!"?
That is funny, though.

Eh.. at least the left didn't fund the Saudi's to continue to bomb Yemen *COUGH* Borris Johnson *COUGH*
I think it's just being oversensitive. No sane individual could think it was a serious suggestion.
I'd agree with jno on this.

Comedians - especially modern ones - tread a thin line in terms of what is acceptable, always a subjective reaction.

For instance if Joe Brand says this, I have no problem at all accepting it as being humorous, and not an 'incitement' of any kind, but if Frankie Boyle had said it, I would think it was nasty, because Frankie Boyle's humour is about nastiness - but even then I would not see it as an 'incitement'.

To my mind, if anyone is 'motivated' to violence by something a comedian says, then they were pre-disposed to violence anyway, and simply looking for a convenient hook on which to hang their violence.
Whether it’s comedy or incitement would depend upon who’s reading it. Stupid in the extreme rather than funny in my opinion.
"Stupid in the extreme rather than funny in my opinion"

Some people find "stupid in the extreme" utterly hilarious.

I think that extends simply to whether or not you find any comedian's output funny or not - as I said, comedy is subjective.

I know people whom in all other areas I would think are sensible and balanced individuals, who advise me that they think Michael McIntyre is funny.

It's all about perception.
Comedy is not just subjective, but situational.
Not in the least bit funny and I bet she half meant it anyway !! Gone right off her now, stupid ***** ..
AH, //I think that extends simply to whether or not you find any comedian's output funny or not - as I said, comedy is subjective.//

Other comedians don't usually joke about throwing battery acid over people.
I wonder if it'd be funny if someone suggested throwing battery acid at Jeremy Corbyn.

No, probably not.
That would be funny, actually. In a cartoon comical sense.
"Today Farage took to Twitter to call for a criminal investigation into Brand's remarks, writing: 'This is incitement to violence and the police need to act.' "


What a jobsworth.
What would be funny about it, spath? Do you know the effect that battery acid has on the human body?
Well, you're going of the preconceived idea that someone would actually do this, using what Joe said as insistent.
