Joe Rogan attempted to determine the "last great comedy movie" with the help of fellow comedian Tom Papa. Unfortunately, Rogan noticed that woke social justice warriors have murdered the comedic films genre. The prolific podcaster claimed that it had been well over a decade since the last great comedy movie.

This week, Rogan welcomed Tom Papa on his podcast to discuss a plethora of topics.

"The Joe Rogan Experience" host simply asked, "When was the last good comedy movie that was released?"

Rogan then rattled off several comedic films from the 1990s, including "Something About Mary" and "Kingpin."

"It's like wokeness killed the comedy movie in a lot of ways," Rogan declared.

Tom Papa said, "They're just not making them," and then suggested "Step Brothers" starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly was the last great comedy movie.

Rogan asked, "Do woke people make comedy? Is there a woke comedy movie? Is there even an attempt? Is there even an attempt at a politically correct comedy movie? Did they just stop making comedy movies?"

Rogan added, "It's like the genre has been murdered."

The two comedians conceded that 2009's "The Hangover" was the "last great comedy movie."

IMDb released their "20 Best Comedy Movies of the Last 20 Years," which listed the last top comedy to be "Tropic Thunder" which was released in 2009. Other considerations were "Borat" in 2008, "Superbad" in 2007, and "Hot Fuzz" in 2007.

Movies such as "Game Night" in 2018, "Deadpool" in 2016, "This Is The End" in 2013, "We're the Millers" in 2013, "21 Jump Street" in 2012, "Project X" in 2012, "Bridesmaids" in 2011, and "The Other Guys" in 2010 are considered quality comedy movies, but whether they are "great comedy movies" can be debated.

There were no shortage of comedic films in the 1990s with the likes of "Wayne's World," "Dumb and Dumber," "Office Space," "Grumpy Old Men," "What About Bob," "My Cousin Vinny," "Tommy Boy," "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood," "Ace Venture," "Cable Guy," "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "Airheads," Coneheads," "American Pie," and every Adam Sandler movie in the 90s just to name a few.
