You Can Be Mentally Ill AND an Idiot
Comedian Tim Heidecker doesn’t tiptoe to the situation surrounding the rapper officially known as Kanye West. He shared his thoughts on the disgraced fashion designer in this bounty episode of New anomaly audio file.
“It’s like it’s not even comfortable talking about it because obviously there are a lot of people with mental illness who aren’t bigotry. And there are a lot of stubborn people who I guess are technically not mentally ill in a clinical sense,” said host Andy Levy.
“You can be mentally ill and be an idiot, right? You can have both of those things going,” he added.
All that aside, Heidecker tells Andy that he “never understood the genius label anyway”. “You know, I never clicked on it,” he said.

Then Heidecker, who also starred in the show On the cinema and parodied Joe Rogan’s podcast in the past, telling Andy he didn’t understand the appeal of The Joe Rogan Experience one in two.
“I never watched the end of one of those episodes because I finally got the hang of it. “It’s just self-obsession, just the most boring conversations over and over again every day with such interesting people that he seems to suck up his life,” Heidecker said. “And so I’m confused and can’t understand the appeal and popularity beyond, like, the kind of dangerous rhetoric that ends up on that show over and over again.”
“People are always talking about Joe Rogan, his fans and even some of his detractors will say, ‘But he’s so curious, he’s so open-minded’ and I’m always like, no, he He’s not curious, he’s suspicious,” Andy added.
Heidecker tells Andy that despite his thoughts on Rogan, he doesn’t want him to be cancelled.
