Formula to why people become stand up comedians
Hard Work + Stand up Comedy= publicity = SNL= making box office movies (i.e. Sandler, Farley, Ferrell) = $$$$$
p.s. Go Jay London!!!
[QUOTE=senrik]Still, I wonder whether this cast was designed for actual comedic value, or to create conflict in the house.
I'm OK with LCS meets the Surreal Life, as long as that is their intent. But don't lie to me and say that off stage stuff didn't matter in the selection.
I truely believe the intention of the show has shifted from last year and we have been played by TPTB. This was a show about searching for the next big talent. NOW its a show about conflict and forced scandals.
I agree with a poster that said that Dan will move on, and people will come out to see him because of this show.
[QUOTE=colby_d](my favorites from this season being: Ant, Kathleen Madigan, Jessica Kirson, & Marina Franklin) but they all appeal to me for one reason or another.
Hang in there Colby, I just put a house call in to Dr Phill, he's on his way.
I'm surprised to see so many people so passionate about the talent issue. I knew last year that the format of this show didn't lend itself to finding America's funniest comic. It was obvious when Dave Mordal became a casualty of the system, obvious when America voted for Dat Phan. This show is essentially Big Brother with comedy face-offs instead of HoH challenges. If it were about finding the funniest comic, all finalists would perform each week in front of an expert panel that has autonomy over who gets cut. There'd be no vetoes, no challenges, no in-house scheming getting in the way. I like the format of the show. There's plenty other venues to see pure standup comedy, so I just enjoy this show for what it is.
Fool... but no pity.
Actually, just skipping STRAIGHT to the movies is their dream !

Queeny, I wasn't looking for solace or help in that statement.

But actually, I don't think we have a house with 10 untalented comics. They're all good at comedy in some way, shape, or form. Now, that's not to say we all don't have people we wanted to get through that didn't or people we really didn't want to see go through that did. I, for one wanted Jessica Kirson, Jim Wiggins, and Marina Franklin, among others, to get through. Also, I wasn't looking forward to Jay London or Bonnie McFarlane going on, among others. They're good at what they do, but how funny someone is is very subjective.
Regardless, though, I'm still watching the show. I wish those I liked, who didn't go on, the best of luck, but I'm still entertained by this show. I can't stand Rich Vos, but I still loved last season. I don't think Dat's anywhere near the best comic in America, but I still loved last season. This is going to be a good reality show. If you disagree with the talent, go elsewhere to find your favorite comic.
I will never, ever understand why you like the contestants you do. It blows my mind that Kirson and Franklin have fans. Let alone Omarosa and the rest
