Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock - A Neutral Ground Perspective of How we Got Here

The Neutral Ground Podcast with Dr. Joe Meyer

Mar 28 2022 • 6 mins

By now, just about everyone has heard of the infamous slap by Will Smith on Chris Rock. What the heck happened? How did we get here? I think I have one way to approach the conversation. It has to do with our growing conscious awareness of Neomodernism. I talk about how stand up comedy might need to change a bit, how Will Smith is trying to assert some control on his own narrative, and Ricky Gervais' hosting of the Golden Globes in 2020. That should have been the moment these events realized that stand up comedians are probably not the best hosts right now.
