Comedian Joe Mande pointed us in the direction of a new holiday-themed video comedian Denis Leary posted on his website this week. It turns Charlie Brown's Christmas Special into some sort of very uncomfortable jihadist joke. As Mande put it, "I still can’t get over how profoundly fucked up and confusing it is. That said, pleeeeeease watch."
Leary, who starred in the FX show Rescue Me for seven seasons, is known for his provocative comedy style, which has brought him controversy with statements about autism. While Leary is probably trying to shock his fans out of their pre-holiday stupor—fueled by a never ending stream of wallpaper Christmas tunes—we had a very tough time sitting through this particularly xenophobic one-note joke.
Of course, Leary is nothing if not an equal-opportunity offender, so he also posted a video of Santa Claus partaking in some of his favorite illicit activities, among other things. Watch below—because who doesn't want to listen to Leary sing a jaunty anti-Christmas song!
