|

British comedian Roy Chubby Brown often works blue. His jokes often touch on racial or ethnic topics and some could be seen as making fun of LGBT people. He's popular among working-class Brits. But apparently, not among members of the Swansea, Wales, Council. They have canceled an upcoming show by Brown at the Grand Theatre, which the council controls. "We want all our communities and staff to feel welcome and we felt this booking was unlikely to reflect our values and commitments to them," the council said in a statement.
