Steve Martin and Martin Short, 2 comics who are now part of the old guard in comedy, have informed their Hollywood friends to push it and are refusing to turn their brand-new program into a Trump-bashing extravaganza.The 2 just recently kept in mind that political humor back in 2016 worked fine, but recently things have gotten so polarized that assaulting Trump actually injures their audience numbers.Of course, Short has assaulted Trump numerous times in numerous venues, but it seems he is reassessing that practice for an upcoming show he is planning with pal Steve Martin.According to Daily Caller:”Prior to the election, we did a great deal of Trump material, a great deal of political material, and it was great,”Martin shown IndieWire Wednesday.”After the election, you began to hear comments from the audience, whether it was a yay or a boo, and we stated,’We do not want that. We’re not here to preach, ‘”he added.”So we started limiting the dissentious political product from the act because you get that on late-night TELEVISION,” Martin continued.”It’s not something you want to pay [for] We’re simply attempting to be funny.””When it concerns politics, you do not want to make half the audience feel like they’re improper, “Brief discussed. “So even when we’re doing Jiminy Glick, we

attempt to go back and forth.””For me, it’s not my forte, “Martin interjected, sharing that political commentary simply wasn’t his thing.”I’m unknowned as a political comedian for a factor. I

actually decided a long, long time back. I simply feel it takes the audience from the show a bit.”Envision that, a pair of Hollywood comics who don’t want to push away half their possible audience!Naturally, it is possible to be amusing without having to go political. Indeed, the majority of America’s most well-known comics in the early days barely ever did any political comedy.Such giants as Jack Benny, Burns and Allen, Abbott and Costello … I

might go on and on … hardly ever did political jokes. Yes they all didthem extremely moderately occasionally. Political humor didn’t really take over American funny until the 60s. If that is what you want to do as a

comic, go for it. It is a complimentary country. Do not sit there an whine when you end up being an object of attack when you do it … I’m looking at you Kathy Griffin.In the mean time, excellent for Martin Short and Steve Martin for simply wanting to be amusing without having to end up being rabid, left-wing attack dogs.Follow Warner Todd Huston on Twitter @warnerthuston.
