Who went too far: Jerry Sadowitz or those who cancelled his Edinburgh fringe show? | Brian Logan
Questions of free speech offer no simple answers, but it’s clear that this is a watershed moment in comedyIf we don’t defend free speech, we live in tyranny. That’s the tenor of the coverage of the attack on Salman Rushdie this weekend. So is it also our take when a comedian uses “extreme racism, sexism, homophobia and misogyny” onstage?
