He called rishi sunak a p##i, which in itself is hilarious. He also waved a fake cock in a womens face, which he also did the last time I saw him.

He even advertises getting his knob out in the shows promotions.

venues are entitled to decide what they allow to be shown on their premises the same way that the comedian is free to choose another venue

Yes Fair point
but why could the BBC not tell us
the reason was a "racial slur"


Only did I hear the truth
on GBnewsHD

Anthony Alderson, Director of the Pleasance said: "The Pleasance is a venue that champions freedom of speech and we do not censor comedians' material. While we acknowledge that Jerry Sadowitz has often been controversial, the material presented at his first show is not acceptable and does not align with our values. This type of material has no place on the festival and the Pleasance will not be presenting his second and final show

He called Sunak a Hamilton?

So the venue does not want to appear to support racism, fair enough

No idea how the "comedian" thought he could get away with that tbh - if true
