The purge, which took place on Nov. 24, comes following a new push by comedians to get Spotify and other digital streaming companies to pay them royalties not just as performers, for which they already receive compensation, but also as the writers of the material.

The movement is being led by global rights company Spoken Giants, which is arguing that comedians should receive royalties as writers of the jokes being streamed the same way songwriters receive royalties on music that is streamed.

Spoken Giants was launched last year by former BMI exec Jim King and 800 Pound Gorilla Records co-founders Ryan Bitzer and Damion Greiman and is pushing for more compensation, not just for comedians, but all spoken word artists.

Jeremy Clarkson swipes at BBC show Doctor Who for 'lecturing' viewers as ratings drop
Jeremy Clarkson has made a swipe at BBC's Doctor Who, claiming that the programme has lost its spark with viewers after its recent episode accumulated underwhelming figures in ratings.The latest instalment of the sci-fi show, which was once one of the flagship programmes on the broadcaster, saw just 3.4 million tune in.And according to the Clarkson's Farm star, it's all over the writers' decision to focus storylines around lecturing its audience instead of entertaining them."Doctor Who is no longer written to entertain or frighten kids," the 61-year-old wrote in his latest column for The Sun."It's used to lecture them about climate change and corporate greed and all the other go-to storylines in the BBC playbook."Actress Jodie Whittaker took over Peter Capaldi's role as the current incarnation of the Doctor, a character she has played since her first regular appearance for season 11 in 2018.The series premiere logged a moderate 5.6 million viewers at the time, showing clear signs that the show has been heading down a steep decline in recent years.Further on in his column on January 7, Jeremy took another jab at the BBC, asserting that it wasn't just Doctor Who that had been affected by how writers were handling storylines."It's the same thing with just about everything they do these days, from the Six O'clock News to Countryfile."I watched a charming show by Sir Attenborough this week, about the noises birds and whales make."The father-of-three continued: "It was lovely."Right up to the end, when he played us an old recording of a bird that's now extinct due to, yes, you've guessed it, climate change and habitat loss."It's been an interesting start to the new year for Jeremy who learned last week that his bid to open a

'I don't work for the BBC' Monty Don hits back over impartiality claims in TV licence quip
Monty Don, 66, did not appear to be in good spirits when he took to Twitter last night to hit back at an account that asked him not to share his political views with fans online.Their tweet came after the BBC star utilised the social platform to share an opinionated piece about Prime Minister Boris Johnson by The Guardian.In the essay, writer Max Hastings asserted that Boris “is utterly unfit” to be the head of the government in the UK before going on to claim that he “cares for nothing but his own fame and gratification”.Along with a link to the article, Monty wrote in view of his 247,000 followers: “Every word is prescient.“I was Boris Johnson’s boss: he is utterly unfit to be prime minister | Max Hastings”And while the tweet received well over 1,300 likes, the Twitter user @HughNTJohnson didn’t seem to agree with the Americans Gardens author’s decision to use his social media account to discuss political matters.“No politics Monty, you work for BBC, tax payers don’t need to pay for opinions, just gardening,” they wrote.Clearly unamused by the remark, Monty tweeted out a fiery response, starting off with laying things bare on his working relationship with the Beeb.“For the record I don’t work for the BBC- i work for myself,” he wrote. (sic)“And I wasn’t aware you paid to read my comments on twitter.“However I defend to the death your right to disagree with them and express your own views- on any subject.”The user later apologised to Monty for their comment.Max laid into Boris in his opinionated piece, adding that while he’s known him since they both worked at the Daily Telegraph in the 1980s, the 57-year-old was deemed more of an entertainer than a solid candidate to be running for national office.And according to Max,
