Re: “A Case of Emophilia

He really is a lot funnier than he sounds in this interview. Genius is right, though.

Re: “Eating Accomplishment and Shitting Inconsideration

Serious question. How can i get a (free ducat) for Saturday? I'm actually like a fan of the big palooka. Free is better because then it's a dick move if i heckle.

Re: “Funny Abortion Stuff

@Andrew, I know you have a tough job coaxing people out who are otherwise only doing press to fill seats. I'm also not a huge fan of the rather tired MIB persona. Still, I'd probably be annoyed too if I got some flavor of, "where do your jokes come from?," "do you wonder if your career is over?," "when will you stop doing standup?," and "aren't you worried you peaked 15-20 years ago?"

Re: “Karmel Out

How about a tv show that takes place in a city like Portland with monkeys that wear cowboy hats and ride around the city on dogs, stopping crime by distracting people with their hilarious monkeyshines!

Re: “Parting Shots

Not at all true! Maybe you should know what you're talking about before you say something slanderous and condemning.

Re: “Portland's (New) Funniest Person

My wife and I were two of those judges.. the women did great, hell they all did great; Dudes AND Dudettes. When it came down to it though.. the right folks got picked. Gender had nothing to do with it. Judging was based on originality, audience reaction, stage presence, and delivery. Helium hosted a wonderful event and is the funniest gig in town.

Re: “Portland's (New) Funniest Person

For female performers, Purtle, Streed, Pruett and Stacey Hallal all made it to the Semifinals, where judges determined who advanced to the finals.
