Clean Comedy Day
Comedy fans can be divided into two separate camps: those who think that comedy has to be clean and shouldn’t contain any profanity, and the camp that people are alright with varying levels of bawdiness. A holiday that celebrates the former instead of the latter is Clean Comedy Day.
This is a holiday that’s observed every April 28th and has been observed since the mid-1990s. It celebrates “clean comedy,” whatever that happens to mean to the individuals celebrating it.
After all, what’s an innocent comedy to one person might be absolute filth to another, so we guess each person is going to have to decide for themselves what they consider to be clean comedy on this holiday. And we’re looking forward to the debate.
The History Of Clean Comedy Day
This holiday was invented by the Comedy Barn Theater in Tennessee in 1995. They wanted to create a comedy show that could be enjoyed by not only adults but also by children.
They believed that performing clean comedy allowed their work to appeal to a broader audience and help to bring back people who may have been put off by the rise of more profane humor. Ever since then, Clean Comedy Day has been observed by people who are looking to avoid raunchy humor.
Observing Clean Comedy Day
On this day, people can take the time to find a comedy venue that’s observing Clean Comedy Day and presenting an act that’s suitable for the entire family. It’s also a good day for people to come up with their own clean jokes on this day.
And, of course, people can spread the news about this holiday by using the hashtag #CleanComedyDay on social media. Clean comedy is a genre that’s free of racism, ribaldry, profanity, obscenity, off-color humor, toilet humor, and explicitly sexual content. It might seem like it’s a genre of comedy that’s hard to find, but we predict that if people actually look for it, then they will find it.
