It ain't easy being green
As some have said, it's early to pick my favorite. But I do like Dan Ahdoot. Perhaps it's because I lived in Iran for six years growing up. Perhaps it's because I think from his educational background, it's clear he's got smarts, and I'm hoping that translates to some intelligent humor.
Dan Adhoot- You can never lose impersonating a middle eastern father. He's really funny. The stand up comic vs. doctor calendar joke was the funniest of the evening.
Dan Naturman- I love this guy's voice. It has such a throwback 40's ratpack vibe to it. Very unique delivery skills. I would not be surprised if he makes it to the house
Jim Norton- This guy is frikkin h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s, but don't watch him with your kids that's for sure!
Fool... but no pity.
Ant was just as gay last year as he is this year and he didn't advance then. He advanced this year as a pity/payback thing I bet, since supposedly he was like... the last person who ALMOST advanced last year.

Besides, as several people have pointed out they showed at least one other gay comedian so far this year, and he seemed FAR funnier than Ant. He had a great joke comparing how people reacted to it like it was a disease that might spread.
What's a sitcom?

In some ways, this show is like American Idol ... it doesn't matter if you win or lose ... just that you are seen (and seen in a good light). The losers who have talent will always do better then the winners who stink ... Dat will be the living testament to that statement.
I especially like Frank Santorelli. He was the best. He would make a great character in the house. Paul the Indian guy was very funny. But both of these guys were robbed. Chris Voth deserves to move on but he didn't. Slots by Jessica, Sue and Ant should have been given to someone else. The ones remaining, I like John "Bobcat Goldwaithe" Hernoff, Monty, Alonzo, and Dan Adoot.
Although I positively ADORED Dave Mordal, and swore I wouldn't continue watching the show last year if he got eliminated (well I kept watching anyway)...I just don't understand liking Norton--way too just plain mean for my taste...seems to me his type of humor appeals more to the moronic class...which leaves me in a quandry as to how a true Mordal fan could also be a Norton fan?? But then again, I did start last year off disliking Rich Vos...and he won me over by the third episode or so...

Vos is much worse than Norton.
While there comedic styles are different on stage.....
If you talked to him in person, you would probably spit him in or slap him on the face by the end of the conversation......
Vos and Norton have pretty much the same personality off-stage.
Norton is just talks about it onstage and keeps his thinking to himself off stage.
Vos doesn't talked about it onstage, but off stage he pretty much is a male whore and is pretty boisterous about it.
Because I read most of your posts last year (although I never registered with the forum until today), I respect your opinions as always reflected so intelligently in your very eloquent manner. Ahdoot was good...the "Comedy Calendar" time line bit was indeed clever, hilarious and well delivered. I guess my very favorite was actually Chris Voth, but since he and Paul V. are gone, am probably routing for Dan Naturman--just hits my funny bone on lots of levels...from his appealing "regular guy" appearance to his attention-grabbing delivery to his cartoon-like voice to his (at least to me) interesting and unique material...

I don't know, Tez...I guess it was the ironing that won me over with Vos...or maybe the ironing combined with that "bad boy" sexy thing, combined with that scared of a little mouse thing...but with Norton I just see a misogynistic potential serial killer...he spooks me...

Franklin was funnier the second night, but IMHO didn't hold a candle to Retha...Ahdoot was clever and fresh...BUT NORTON AND KIRSON?????? Oh well...different strokes for different folks...I did not understand how either of them could make the cut over Chris Voth, Paul Varghese, Retha or even the stripper!!
