I'm new here. Read a bit of the forums and now want to make some observations.
If this show were just about the funniest stand-up comic, then why not do an AI type of show and make it just about performance?
Instead we're given a big brother type of look into these comics personalities and behaviors. So NBC doesn't just want us to laugh at the comics. They want us to like and dislike their characters too.
Which means this isn't about the funniest comic. This is about the comic that America likes the best.
Which means that Dat Phan has a point when he says that a good person should win.
Which leads me to wonder why all the comics have ganged up on Dat. There really isn't anything that has been shown to us that makes Dat a bad person to be around. Sure, he's a little different. He rehearses, talks to himself, meditates, exercises and makes charts and keeps notes on what he does.
A unique way of working, but nothing in what he does appears to hurt anyone else.
Yet the others in the house have all gone back to high school and have singled out the "different" kid. He's wierd, we don't understand him, so he has to go. Those charts are annoying. We don't want that kind around.
Even the hide and seek game; that kind of trick is hilarious when you play it on your friends. I laughed at it. And there is certainly nothing wrong with it when it is one of your own that you're doing it to. But it came off mean because they did it to someone they had singled out as not one of them.
There's some bullying going on here. Certainly nothing that is really harmful and Dat is strong enough to rise above it. But with a house full of so called "adults" should this type of thing be happening?
I understand that NBC has edited a lot. But we can only come to our conclusions based on the information given us. So my question is, Why is everyone ganging up on Dat?
