Christopher Hitchens On Comedy Fails [VIDEO]

So I came across this video featuring Christopher Hitchens. Vanity Fair shot it in 2008 but apparently removed it from the VF YouTube channel some time ago. Anyway, it features Hitchens talking about an article he wrote for Vanity Fair in 2007 (“Why Women Aren’t Funny”) and the backlash he received from it. It’s quite amusing . . . and it could never be filmed and published today. (RELATED: In Appreciation of Rowan Atkinson)

By the way, I found this video because someone posted it on Twitter in response to the below tweet from The Hill. Enjoy it. (The video up top with Hitchens, at least. The other one embedded in the below tweet . . . not so much.)
