One of the UK's only vocally Right-wing comedians has said that although woke culture is ripe territory for comedy, left-wing comedians are now worried that they'll be dubbed "fascist adjacent" if they're seen to critique it.
Geoff Norcott also told Liam Halligan on the Telegraph's Planet Normal podcast, which you can listen to easily on the audio player above, that "no-one is immune to having the piss taken out of them" and that "if people in liberal ivory towers want to make decisions on behalf of people that they can't handle some light piss-taking, that is dangerous, because you're then excluding people from the conversation."
On cancel culture, Mr Norcott says its real impact is in modern workplaces rather than the entertainment industry, saying "cancel culture for me refers to people who made one poor decision or said something out of line, that's where it's really important, in the modern workplace."
Also on the podcast: Allison and Liam weigh up whether Victoria Wood would be a victim of so-called "cancel culture" and find a cunning loophole to make their Christmasses Covid-compliant.
