“With all of my jokes, I try to do topics that are tough to make fun of. There’s nothing funny about rape. There’s nothing funny about it. That’s why I try to make jokes about it.
So I thought, it’s funny to open with a rape joke. No one ever does that. It’s crazy. And then set up that I’ve got two more coming, so people know what they’re getting into. It’s a good way to set the bar for the audience.
And then the Tosh thing happened, and I was like, oh geez. Now it’s almost like you’re trying too hard. I’m probably done with rape jokes, to be honest with you. We’ll see how the reaction is to the special. If people get on my case about it, then I might want to do it again.
it interests me when people tell me not to do something. It’s one of the reasons I got into comedy, just wanting to do what people say I shouldn’t be doing. If someone gets in my face and says you need to apologize for these jokes or we’re going to try to ruin your career through the Internet, then that’s just going to make me write as many jokes as I can.”
