I like him a lot, but I wonder how he'll be going head to head against some of the other guys... he's very quirky, which may work against him. I think he'll do well with a young audience.
I will say, he seems like SUCH a nice guy. He's the ultimate class clown, a guy who you could see yourself hanging out, having a beer with, and having him crack on everything around him, making you laugh yer butt off. I hope that can come across on stage.
