“Saturday Night Live” alum Rob Schneider celebrated a comedy club owner for telling the truth about the “discourse in this country” better than “any news anchor or politician or journalist.”

“Thank you. Said by a comedy club owner. It’s Better than anything any news anchor or politician or journalist has said in 10 years,” the 54-year-old comedian tweeted Wednesday.

It came in response to a highlighted portion of an interview with Comedy Cellar owner Noam Dworman about the feedback he got from patrons of the club after he let disgraced comedian Louis C.K. take the stage for the first time Sunday since he admitted to sexual misconduct.

“We’re living in the dark ages of people having things they believe that they know they can’t say out loud and feeling that you have to come to a conversation with already the correct point of view,” Dworman explained. “You’re not allowed to discuss it, be wrong, be informed by someone else’s opinion. Conversation is meaningless: Conversation in this day and age is just for two people to agree to talk about what they agree about.”

“It’s a dangerous time where you have to come to the conversation already holding the correct opinion.”
