Sam, thanks for your opinion. Thankfully, the rebel is not a monolith and different people are free to enjoy the personalities they like. I also think Gavin is quite funny at times and makes some good points. So in essence, I disagree with your list. But again, thats perfectly fine.

The rebel has a lot of good, bad and ugly.

Good: Ezra, Brian, Holly, Menzoid, Robson, Lauren and Paige. I will gladly pay for them.

The bad: Jason, Matt, Sheila, and Faith. It would not hurt the rebel to drop these few.

The ugly: Gavin. By far the worst contributor here at the rebel. Unintelligent, ignorant, obnoxious, immature, etc. Absolutely no value to anybody. As long as he is still here, I will never give a cent to the rebel.

Sam Young; I don’t like some shows on PBS but I donate to them because I enjoy the rest. That is why, if you enjoy the rest of the Rebel, you should donate with that in mind. After all, you are here, so there is something you are getting from here that should be worthy of your pittance.

Michael Mann: Nah I don’t think your opinion is any more valid than mine however I don’t really stop and ask performers of any medium what their political stripes are cause that would be spreading division and I like I mentioned before there are plenty of comedians who are either corny or they over do it. I don’t think trying to be obnoxious as possible is necessarily funny and it runs thin after a while. Then some comedians are hit and miss but I think trying to confine humour to one political stripe is oddly amusing not in a funny way but as a sad commentary on the depths of prejudice some wittingly or unwittingly embrace.

Michael, you insulted conservatives, but you do so often and so off handedly that you do not even recognize when you are doing it. And as for conservatives not being able to be good comedians, it is only that you do not understand conservative humour, not that they are not funny.

Merry Christmas to The Rebel staffers. Merry Christmas to everyone else….(even the the grinch like lefty trolls)!

The greatest comedians are all liberal – simply because they don’t have the conservative mindset that would hold them back from being cutting edge, innovative or controversial. This is the exact reason why conservative comedians don’t do well and comics like Louis CK and Amy Schumer are huge. No one wants to hear conservative comedy.

Who did I insult here exactly?

Michael Mann: Humor is tricky to pull off. I can’t say there is any political party that is more equipped at pulling it off than any other. There are many excellent Canadians comedians and then there is some humor I am embarrassed to admit is a Canadian production such as the new kids in the hall or other comedians who seem to rely on speaking in falsetto voice or facial contortions alone to compensate for a lack of quality writing. I tend to prefer witty humor as opposed to slapstick or cornball but I do try to stay open minded and hold a place in my heart for some of the masters of old. In any event Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

You two are complete idiots. You are not at all funny, and a waste of time. Whenever I think of donating money to the rebel, I end up thinking of the idiots that are on staff here, such as the two of you. And then I come to the conclusion that I don’t want my money going towards stupid videos like what you two are putting out. So the next time Ezra or Brian grovel for money, I hope they think of the number of rebel viewers that are getting put off by you two idiots, and lose any motivation to donate.

I enjoy all your comedy so when are you going to do a 1 hr show on the rebel or even at least a half hour to compete with rick Mercer Report or 22mins both of which you’re doing better comedy.

Michael, it is unfortunate that you cannot give the insults a break for a day or two.

Merry Christmas guys. Although I never comment on your satire pieces I do enjoy some of them. Especially the ones when you interview the dunces on the street or on campuses.
Have a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you again in 2016.

The unfortunate reality is that conservatives suck when it comes to comedy – probably because they lack a sense of humor and complain about obvious jokes that they take as being serious.

You had me with the sweaters.
