Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the Cancel Me Now podcast.
Who is Isaac Butterfield?
Isaac Butterfield was born in Newcastle, Australia on July 14, 1993.
With many people today afraid to test boundaries in comedy, and often not willing to get canceled doing so, there is one man that intends to change that – Isaac Butterfield.
The Australian native is a content creator on YouTube with over 1.93 million subscribers who has also toured nationally and internationally sharing his stand-up comedy with fans all over the world.
Butterfield is known for his comedic humor that challenges social issues and topics with viewpoints that are oftentimes deemed politically incorrect.
An interesting fact about Isaac that he mentions often in his content is that for years he suffered from a type of Epilepsy as a result of obesity. Butterfield uses his Youtube channel to help motivate others to take back their health and often receives mail from subscribers who have lost weight thanks to his videos.
Topics and Themes of the Cancel Me Now Podcast
So what exactly does this podcast talk about?
A better question to ask is what isn’t spoken about on the show. On his main Youtube channel, Butterfield continues to pull off the most fringe and controversial topics with ideologies that challenge the status quo. But, on his podcast, he takes a different approach.
The content seems more funny, trivial, and almost light-hearted with the occasional downward punch or comedic take towards opposing beliefs. Isaac talks about anything and everything, from The Origins of Butt Bleaching to deadly snake attacks, and has a few beers doing so with his co-host Josh “Bluey” Neilson.
For the most part, the show covers topics that are making headline news at the time. During parts of the podcast, Isaac’s ideologies and rationale break through, and though it may come across as rude or insensitive, he makes an effort to explain his rationale, why he thinks the way he does, and where his opinions stem from.
To be a comedian in this day and age it’s difficult to know exactly where to draw the line. Some people consider his comedy really selfish and say he “picks low-hanging fruit”, but at the end of the day if something exists in this world we live in, there is going to be a joke about it and the joke shouldn’t be required to have an apology prompt with it.
Some of the topics that have made Butterfield popular are:
Hatred of Vegans, Cyclists, and Feminists
Butterfield is known for his grudge against cyclists and vegans. Some of his videos on these subject matters have landed him in hot water with influencers such as Banana Girl who called out his comedic takes on veganism.
When it comes to cyclists, Butterfield claims that they’re annoying because they don’t use allocated bike lanes thus they end up holding up traffic.
Lastly, his opinion regarding feminism sparked a feud with Clementine Ford, a popular feminist, and presenter on Bay FM.
Australia Vs. New Zealand
Another hot topic that helped grow Isaac’s audience is his New Zealand and Australia comparisons. He first released a video in 2018 on this subject matter, and although the video was meant to be a humorous comedy sketch it was ill-received by some individuals who deemed the content racist.
Butterfield’s comedy knows no boundaries, and political correctness is non-existent. In fact, his stand-up style could be compared to that of Shappeles, because neither is afraid to cover topics that other comedians see as off-limits due to fear of backlash.
Platforms for listening and reach
Because Isaac discusses topics that are generally known to get creators demonetized, he relies heavily on Patreon, merch sales, and sponsors for the monetization of his channels. That being said, you can find all his content including his podcast on mainstream streaming platforms.
With millions of subscribers on his Youtube channel and a 4.8-star rating on Apple Podcast, you won’t be let down by the Aussies’ content.
