Why used passive voice in the following sentence

Hello everyone, I cannot understand why it's passive voice in 「ーーーーていうツッコミも、起きてなきゃ受けられてない。」 sentence. Just 受けてない would be mistake here ? Thank you very much for help!

「それに寝腐るの、もったいないじゃん。眠ってる間も世界動いてて、おもしろい事は雲の数ほどあるんだぞ?」
「兄様、普通は星の数ほど、じゃない?」
「ーーーーていうツッコミも、起きてなきゃ受けられてない。息を吸って吐くだけのCO2自動作成機にはなっちゃダメ」

    That られる means possible, not passive.
    The whole sentence means
    "You are not being able to receive that ツッコミ unless you are awake."
