Toronto Comedian Guy Earle Fined $15,000 For Insulting Lesbian In Audience | Jimmy Dore
With all the controversy over the trans teacher in Canada whose taken to donning giant fake breasts before teaching classes, Jimmy recalls the incident of a Canadian comedian who was fined $15,000 for disparaging a lesbian comedy show patron. The comedian, Guy Earle, interrupted his set during a Vancouver open mic night to tell the audience to ignore Lorna Pardy and her companion openly making out in the front row. Pardy objected to the comments and then the altercation escalated from there. Eventually the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal ruled that Earle should pay Pardy $15,000 in damages.
Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger wonder at how far off the deep end Canada has drifted while Jimmy relishes the opportunity to make jokes about the case the next time he visits the neighboring country to the north.
