Tim Dillon rushed to defend Joel Osteen after the pastor allegedly refused to open his church’s doors to Hurricane Harvey victims.
That’s all you should learn about Dillon’s coal-black humor.
[WARNING: The following snippet contains extreme adult humor]
Netflix’s “Tim Dillon: A Real Hero” affords the stand-up at his bitter greatest, riffing on American tradition with out apology. He even skewers his Denver viewers, calling them impossibly match with vacant eyes.
The metropolis, he barked, is “one unhealthy mayor from being Portland.”
Dillon’s particular triples down on that slicing method, torching deep crimson Texans and academics indoctrinating college students on gender fluidity alike.
Much of the language can’t be repeated right here.
The Long Island native is relentlessly apolitical, and just like the storied “South Park” franchise isn’t afraid to slay sacred cows. He’ll thank New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for culling the herd of aged sufferers one minute, then word how Cuomo’s handsy nature ended his political profession.
Never thoughts that embarrassing dying toll.
He attacked nurses for tending to COVID-19 sufferers earlier than recording TikTook movies close to corpses.
Offended? Outraged? Tim Dillon isn’t for you.
And, maybe, Netflix isn’t too eager on spreading the love for its personal comedian. Netflix’s PR workforce didn’t serve up a press launch in regards to the particular, and its media web site affords no clue it exists, both.
The comedian’s pandemic gags proved funnier, and extra subversive, than something his friends would possibly provide (Jim Breuer is an exception).
He says he obtained COVID-19 after being vaccinated, “as a result of that’s the way you get it,” with a not-so-subtle wink on the false narratives surrounding the therapies. He additionally shredded the media for its pandemic worry porn.
Other materials deemed off-limits by comedy tradition performed into Dillon’s strengths.

He saved some venom for woke quick meals shops, a normal swipe at companies’ social justice lecturing.
“Let’s be certain that IHOP is on the precise facet of historical past,” he cracked. “Is there sauce within the bag? I don’t care in the event you’re denying the Holocaust.”
Dillon’s cynicism, as expertly crafted as it’s, does go away a mark. The particular’s 45-minute time, a bit shorter than most mainstream specials, proves fortuitous. Sometimes a comic’s skill to showcase our baser impulses can go away us battered between the stomach laughs.
At his core, Dillon is a relentless populist, talking up for the little man towards each the System and our personal human nature. And he saves his most savage upper-cuts for his household.
That mixture means he’ll by no means run out of fabric.
