to have the show banned has been ruled as the cause of the mass
complaints to Lancaster City Council, which stated: “Roy Brown is
infamous for his insulting comedy consisting of jokes made at the
expense of the LGBTQ+ community.
jokes are outwardly racist, homophobic, and misogynistic.
he were to attend the comedy show in Morecambe, then it would fly in
the face of the city council's equality and diversity policy”.

understand that this decision will disappoint some people, but we are

In March, actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars for joking about his wife Jada Smith's bald head.
Later in May fellow African American comedian Dave Chappelle was tacked by a man with a knife on stage in LA, after he refused to apologize for making transgender jokes during his Netflix comedy show.
And in that same month Ricky Gervais was slammed on Twitter, after telling woke comedy goers to: "Grow a spine", following the attack on Dave Chappelle.
