Well, I just checked the Apollo Theater website. He is NOT on their calendar.

Yet another reason why I don't much care what celebrities have to say when they are not performing. They have an act and that is about it, damn few of them have an actual personality or mind or any character behind it.

Drugs maybe?

Quite Possible. I had met this man a few years ago at a charity dinner and he was a very soft spoken person. So to see this was a shock to me. If not drugs or alcohol, maybe the frustration has gotten to him that he really has found no success since Seinfeld ended. He will always be typecast as a Kramer type character. I am sure his PR people will try and save face by annoucing that Michael is going into some type of rehab facility.

"Richards, who played the wacky Cosmo Kramer on the hit TV show "Seinfeld," appeared onstage at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood. Kyle Doss, an African-American, told TMZ he and some friends were in the cheap seats and he was playfully heckling Richards when suddenly, the comedian lost it. "

They were being assholes and he called them on it. You don't go to a comedy club and heckle the comedian. That's not the place for you to voice your opinion. You go there, listen and leave. If you don't like what's going on get up and leave.

They deserved it.

WOW...

All I can say is...WOW.

So from what I can see he flipped out because some black folks where talking during his routine. I know that can be annoying. It is rude. I've been in audiences at comedy clubs and movies where people, did that. But WOW. To single them out like that and say what he said? It was uncalled for. He's supposed to be a funny guy. Black comedians make fun of the tendency for Black people to talk at shows all the time. You'd think he could have retooled one of their jokes to make his point and make it funny.

You do have to wonder if he is frustrated over the lack of post-Seinfeld success. However, when someone really comes unhinged their true feelings come out, so I think he was showing his true colors.

I think we have the 2006 winner of the Saddam Hussein Career Move Award.

Previous winners include Shelly Long and David Caruso. He just leaped into the lead formerly held by John Kerry.

Well...

They deserved any barbs he felt like sending their way, or even being bounced from the club. On the other hand, hurling the N-grenade like that is an insult and offense to ALL African-descended persons and indeed to anyone who cares about other humans.

What is more, it is almost certainly actionable in court.

P.S. Yes world! There are cameras on you.

I agree.

But if he was a good comedian he could have done it in a funny way without resorting to demeaning people.

They were assholes and he became one himself because he couldn't think of a way to make people laugh at them.

Seinfeld is one of the most popular TV shows in syndication, being shown by stations all over the country and undoubtedly earning a fortune. It'll be interesting to see if some stations are pressured into dropping the show. Of course Richards is just one of four major characters, but the extreme nature of his outburst might lead to some pretty extreme reactions.

I have been to several comedy clubs where this has happened including the Laugh Factory in this video, and each time the comedian will come back and work off of the heckler drawling laughter from it. If the heckler gets too bad, maybe just a person who was born an ass and wants to keep going, club bouncers are to escort the heckler out of the building so not to ruin the other partrons time.

Ok Strom.

When Mel Gibson went on his drunken rant, it was "breaking news" and "headline news" and was a front page story.

Richards loses his cool and goes off by calling audience members niggers and making historical references to discrimination (in public, even) and it gets barely a mention on the networks.

What Richards did and said was way over the line . . . period. Not funny and racist. He's a has been and has been for a while. The short lived series he had (and Jason Alexander had) after Seinfeld simply sucked. He's fallen even further with this stunt.

Now . . . .

Let me ask a question: If the comic using the "N" word had been a black man or woman, would there be an uproar?

What makes it OK for someone of color to use that word - repeatedly - in their 'comedy' routines, but as soon as a white man says it, it makes National News?

Hypocrites anyone?

Are you for real? Sure they deserved it but why call them niggers? Why make racial slurs? He crossed the line. Big time. What shocked me more was when they got up and were walking they were telling him that what he said was uncalled for and he said "That is what happens when you interrupt the white man!" That was a little telling. He screwed the dog bigtime here. He almost looked like he was melting down. He better get on camera and make a sincere apology now. What he did was wrong.

Sorry ANC I'm gunna have to disagree with you here. It's not hypocritical. A white person can never call a black person the N word. Period. Plain and simple.

I quite agree. Absolutely.

I think you miss my point here. IF Michael Richards had been a black man, would there be the uproar over his use of the "N" word?

Answer: NO. It is socially acceptable IMO for a black man to use that word in reference to other black persons. That makes anyone using that word, and then complaining about it be directed towards them, a hypocrite . . .

While I agree that it is wrong for anyone to call anyone else the "N" word, I fail to see why Richards' being white makes the word WORSE. I know, I know, Black comedians and Black people call one another that all the time, but frankly if they want the word to disappear then it has to be taboo to use for everyone, Black, White, Asian, Pink polka dots.

It is hypocritical to use that word privately then get upset if someone else uses that word, especially if you make using it worse if someone is of another race. Its reverse racism. It perpetuates hate. people shouldn't use it no matter who they are and everyone ought to be outraged no matter who says it.

Let me ask you this:

Why does Quentin Tarantino get to use it with impunity in Pulp Fiction and other movies, while Richards doesn't? I think both uses are wrong, and the difference in the way people react to the two situations IS hypocritical.

One great thing about cringe comedy is that the comedian will not only think the worst thing, but then go ahead and say what we are all thinking, but don't have the balls to. I am not saying I agree or disagree with "Kramer" here but the sad part here is probably about half the comedy club were thinking the same thing.....He just happened to be the one that called them out on it.

I see what you're saying my friend however, if a Black person uses that word it doesn't have the same aggression and hatred behind it as opposed to another race using it. I mean look at the history of the word, and how it was used by whites. When a Black person calls another Black person the N word, 99% of the time it is not meant in the hateful way it would be if someone from another race called a Black person the word. Even if a white person calls a Black person the N word, and doesn't intend to mean it hatefully, it is nearly impossible to distinguish that he or she didn't mean it offensively.

Again, look at the history of White people using it against Black people. You do make a good point about the word should be taboo for all, however refer to my reply to ANC's post.
