Paramount Pulls The Show COPS. This Needed to Happen.


Growing up Saturday nights became a television hotbed in my house. If my Mom had her way, we would be watching the Grand Old Opry and The Statler Brothers Show on TNN. And on those nights as a child I would be miserable. But if my Dad his way, we would be watching America’s Most Wanted and COPS. Growing up and even as an adult, I still enjoyed COPS and to a lesser extent LIVE PD.

Yesterday, Paramount cancelled COPS. Ironically, this would be the second time the show has been cancelled. FOX decided to not renew the show in 2013 only for the show to find a new home on SPIKE TV now Paramount. After, 33 years COPS will no longer be on the air, and it’s time. And I am going to put LIVE PD in the same conversation, while car crash reality television is fun to watch sometimes, for example the guy who had a joint behind his ear on COPS or the individual who took a dump in WALMART in Nevada on LIVE PD, those moments have us talking. But for every moment that made us laugh, we are met with something that leaves us uncomfortable. I can even remember thinking as a child, that officer is a dick while watching.

This needed to happen. It’s time.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
