Real Wacky Kramer

November 22, 2006 at 1:00 pm (Uncategorized)

   Seems like Michael Richards pulled a Gibson on the weekend at an LA comedy club. The Gibson refers to going on some wacky meltdown in public. A public that  these days has cellphones equipped with cameras that do photo and video, which makes the meltdown available to all on the internet before you can say upload.

   What got into Mr. Richards I am not sure, but the response to hecklers is not to lash out with racial tirades. All he had to do was get back at them with a quick comeback joke and that would have been it. Instead of that Mr. Richards turned into some crazy racist Mr. Hyde.
   Comedy is a hard business but for Mr Richards it is a business, that he is done with now, I believe. Going on a racist rant like he pulled on the weekend is a career killer. The apology will not cut it, the damage is done.

  I always liked the Kramer character on Seinfeld but now when I catch a rerun I will remember those racial slurs and it will not  be as funny.
