    This man is a genius. He has the funniest one liners I've ever heard, and yet he was voted off. I really think he was too intellegent for America. It's rare that I laugh out loud at a comic, I ususally just smile. Except that dumbass that beat him who wasn't remotely funny. I guess America wants funny, but not that funny.

    i think it's the tiny-tim/kenny g doo that america wants to have no truck with.
     
  3. i didn't find jay london funny ever. all of his "good" jokes were the really obvious ones (fourth one on the chart, etc.).

    i think antonio should and will win. he's the only one whose jokes i've laughed at every time. of course, i liked the guy from minnesota to win last year and he got beat by the vietnamese poor kid. what ever happened to him?

    of course, the important part in all of this is that we're making shows designed to keep people laughing. who else thinks comedy is seriously important and is thankful we have actually funny shows and a whole tv network devoted to it?

  4. I love Comedy Central. I am constantly viewing, more than any station.

    I don't watch that much TV, but I am so thankful they air the previous night's episodes of Conan O Brien, and LOVE Friday nite standup...also glad they opted to air MAD TV now, infinitely funnier than the SNL tripe they were repeating ad nauseum.

    The only other comic I like on that show is the guy who won the fryers roast.

    RCZ, you obviously don't appreciate one liners then.

    "You know what burns me? Matches!"

    "It's almost over"
    "You'll never see me again, sir."

    Very much a crazier Rodney Dangerfield.

    Steven Wright wouldn't even have been invited to the house. He could school all of 'em.

    Amazing. Simply Amazing. It honestly doesn't get any better than that deadpan absolutely insane humor. That's what I go for in real life and fail at completely.

    Antonio? Are you sure you're watching the same show that we're talking about?

    Dat Phan...yeah he was pretty one dimensional but then again I didn't think Ralphie May was that funny either. I've been listening to some of Ralphie May's album on Rhapsody and that confirmed it for me...not very funny. I was really surprised that Dat Phan made it that far. I don't think someone so one-dimensional (all jokes about being vietnamese) would win. Look at ant...all his jokes were about being gay and the first time he got challenged he got slaughtered. Well, at least Dat Phan's jokes about being vietnamese were somewhat funny...I guess that counts. As far as what he's doing now, they interviewed him in the first episode of this season and he said he just finished making a movie with Kim Basinger. Life's not fair.

    Speaking of one sided: I hated that Ant guy. Ever single one of his jokes seemed the punchline was: "I'm gay." I mean, sometimes it was funny, but everytime it was like "I wonder where this joke is going." :rollno:

    Matt,

    I agree...Jay made me laugh too. Kind of a cross between Mitch Hedberg and Rodney Dangerfield.

    "My girlfriend has crabs so I bought her some fishnet stockings."

    I think he's just a bit too offbeat for the mainstream like that. I don't think someone like Mitch Hedberg would have fared well in that kind of crowd either. We differ though in that I actually thought Gary Gulman had good stuff. I wish Todd Glass would have beaten Tammy though...she's just freakin' annoying and unfunny. I could see Alonzo Bodden winning this. He's got good material and excellent delivery and I think people are intimidated by both his comedy talent and his physical presence...I think that plays into it a little bit. I also think his jokes are a little more sophisticated though and that could possibly hurt him against someone with simple, straightforward material. We saw that happen last season with Dave whatshisface. While I thought Gary had decent material his delivery is lacking. I don't think Corey is very funny but I could see someone like him appealing to the same kind of audience that chose a Dat Phan.

    Which is why Mitch Hedburg rocks as well.

    Yeah and it seemed like he saved his least funny material for his challenge with Gary. There was a reason why Ant did NOT make it into the house when he tried out last season...I guess second time's a charm.

    My thoughts exactly. I think he will develop a cult following after this.

    My absolute favorite: "I use to date a promiscuous impressionist, she did everybody."

    I really liked "I went to see a urologist. He said I could go at any time.". Now THAT was funny! :D

  19. I have to give it up to Mitch Hedburg "Smokey the bear is much more intimidating in person"

    Ron White "I got thrown out of a bar..." k, heard it a few times, but he is still damn funny

    and dave Chappelle. Not the show, but his stand up that he did before he got on cable. "Sesame St. is a terrible place...6 foot pidgeons walking around.."
