New At Unicorn Booty: Ari Shaffir Insults Damienne Merlina

gay-blog-damienne-merlina-480x336In comedian Ari Shaffir’s 2012 Comedy Central special, Passive Aggressive (recently aired on television for the first time), there’s a segment that has no purpose but to talk about how unpleasant he finds comedienne Damienne Merlina, whom he mentions by name. First and last.  There’re no punchlines, just abuse. And the takeaway seems to be that she has the audacity to be a fat female comedian with one arm.

The Club

The club opens, and all the patrons take their seats and order their alcoholic beverage of choice, some with ice, some without. Most are social drinkers, but some are merely masquerading in regards to the first word of that phrase. They talk quietly amongst themselves, killing time before the show begins.

Ha ha!”, but Chris Morris never falls into that trap, mainly by having something to say.
