Comedians get boring in US

Stand-up comedy in the US is considered exciting by millions.  Some of the top comedians are household names, even in upper middle-class Indian homes, because of their sharp political wit.  However, since the rise of Donald Trump, a few of them have become too opinionated, observers feel.  

"Virtually every major American comedian and late-night host has completely failed to treat Trump stories in a dispassionate manner.  This has never happened in recent past.  Overcome by their Trump hate, so many genuinely talented fellows have turned unfunny.  An eye-opening phenomenon," says @IndiaSpeaksPR on Twitter.

A similar criticism has been voiced against some Indian stand-up comics, whose political leanings prompt them to take stances bereft of nuance.
