The Andrew Ollie Lecture '09

I recently read the Andrew Ollie Lecture, this year given by Julian Morrow (of The Chaser) . It was a fascinating to see him speak candidly about comedy and its audience (including the Chaser show earlier in the year).

The key argument was that "independence of mind also by definition means independence from the audience and "the inevitable corollary to freedom of speech is that there is no such thing as a general right to not be offended".
