Whats up everybody, just found this forum. I've been reading through and there are a few things that I don't think people take into account. As was established in an earlier thread these comics have not seen each others sets. I have only seen several of them outside the show(Vos on Tough Crowd, some of the others on Premium Blend) so all I have to go on is there behavior in the house. And the fact of the matter is Rich and Dave have been making funny observations the whole time and making the other comedians laugh. That is why they are regarded as powerhouses. Ralphie has also done a little of the same thing and the comedians have seen Tess on her extra interview. Comedians like Tere, Dat, and to a lesser extent Geoff haven't been funny IN THE HOUSE. This is no reflection on their standup, but if your not consistently making the other comics laugh then your viewed as weak. That is the reason everyone is teaming up on Dat. I agree that Dat was very humorous in the non house rounds. But when the cameras on him in the house, all he's doing is saying, "I hope those eastcoasters don't team up on me." When the camera is on Rich, Dave, Ralphie, or even Tess they are saying something at least amusing or making light of the situation. If these people weren't in the house the show wouldn't be funny. So until Dat starts making the other comics laugh, the comedians have no reason to think he will be funny.
