I’d never heard of Evan Sayet before last night. He’s a comedian who wrote for Bill Maher during the early days of “Politically Incorrect.”
Sayet says he used to be a typical Hollywood liberal; now he’s a conservative... with a website featuring pictures of himself alongside Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michael Medved, Larry Elder and David Horowitz.
Evan Sayet makes his living nowadays performing at conservative functions, and occasionally headlining “Right to Laugh” club dates with other right-wing comics.
Last night, he was on KFI’s “Joe Hicks Show” (Hicks being the only black host on that talk-radio powerhouse); he was promoting an upcoming “Right to Laugh” gig in North Hollywood.
Dude didn’t impress me with his sense of humor on the radio. Not at all. But I figured I’d look into him... see if it might be worth my time checking out his show and blogging about it.
As it turns out, Internet personality Luke Ford posted an interview with Evan Sayet last month. Ford even uploaded audio files of their phone conversation.
At one point, Luke Ford asked him whether standup comedy is the only place in society “where we can talk honestly about race.”
Sayet responded with a very unfunny joke involving Michael Richards, Al Sharpton and the N-word. Click here to hear it. (The sound quality is about as poor as the joke itself. If you can’t understand him, read the transcript on Ford’s site.)
What cracks me up is hearing Sayet describe that dumb shit as a “witty observation.”
No... what really cracks me up is Evan Sayet charging $30 a head for his “Right to Laugh” comedy show. (Including a buffet.)
