Re: “Save Your Sassy Asides

Very excited to see him tonight. His show has been disappointing, though there's a charm to it, and sometimes it's genuinely hilarious. I'd also like to see it get a second season and hope it takes more risks and finds its own voice instead of just regurgitating the formulas he grew up on.

Re: “Totally Biased, Totally Necessary

He puts you in a double bind, like Quentin Tarantino does with Kill Bill. If you laugh, you must be a sick psycho, but if you don't laugh, you have no sense of humor.

Re: “Totally Biased, Totally Necessary

He's funny. You might not agree with him, but he makes you think. Sometimes his jokes are not what you think, so, think again, but if you laugh, you might be racist.

Re: “Totally Biased, Totally Necessary

not funny. The guy listened to bad career advice about the importance of being earnest.

Re: “A Case of Emophilia

It took four times longer to read this interview in his stage voice.

Re: “A Case of Emophilia

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

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

I'm going to check out of this thread because somehow merely stating my opinion about Improv has become very douchy. Anybody is welcome to whatever hackery they like. I shouldn't have made a stir about it. Maybe it is all good these talent-free stiffs have somewhere to go.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

the only really effective rebuttal to someone who thinks great improv doesn't exist is showing them good improv. I wish I could transport the Sunday Service's set from last night into this thread.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

or maybe better improv up a Bad Sequel to Hunger Games where the teen contestants don't actually fight but just sit around and viciously mock each other's pathetic lack of secondary sexual characteristics.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

Ahh ok now we know who dropped those dislikes on me.

Here's some improv Whitney Johnson why don't you make like a nissan leaf and blow up.

BAM.

PS: if i was going to riff on your pituitary game blunder i would definitely draw a pictionary of a starfish to mock your lack of secondary sexual characteristics.

BAM

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

"Pictionary games"... Though it's way beyond pituitary games too.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

Wow "I'm right" it sounds like you're pretty ignorant of the art form. It's way beyond "2 drink minimum pituitary games." Also, with all of your "off the cuff" abilities, I'm curious. .. where have you done improv?
