    Yeah...I don't think it's GARY whose delivery is off.

    How tall is Gary? He towers over Jay Mohr and I have never thought of him as short.

    The telling of the joke is more important than the joke itself?

    Sure, he's charming, and he delivers well, but the core of the jokes are just unintelligent.

    What is "intellegent" about the core of any joke?

    I paid attention to Gary when he mentioned his height because he's as freakishly tall as my husband - 6'6".

    Actually, yes. Delivery is everything. If you don't like Gary, then use Jay London as an example. A lot of his material is lame, but he's honed a delivery that makes it funny.

    actually, i think gary's delivery is better than his material.
    his best bit, the pill, i have heard from at least one other comedian.
    the sugar cookie bit i have heard before, but not the oreo bit....which was kinda stupid.
    he's a nice guy, but kathleen will probably get into the final 3 since she didn't burn a lot of material in the house and saved her best stuff for the finals, and alonzo is a good writer and has some good material, and his fans probably won't do like heffron's fans and toss a sympathy vote to jay london....i'm guessing alonzo and kathleen will make it, and third spot will be between gary and john....and gary's biggest block of voters are voting for him because he's cute, so they won't be losing many sympathy votes to not-so-cute jay london.....heffron will lose more votes to people being nice to jay, i just hope he doesn't lose too many and come in 4th behind gary

    Kathleen didn't use all that many jokes because she never went to the head-to-head. I don't think that's right. Just doesn't seem fair to me.

    I DO think Gary is absolutely beautiful to look at, but I'm not just voting for him because of that ... really ... I mean that sincerely ... {I can tell you don't believe me} No, seriously, I just adore his delivery and his material. I think he's a funny guy and I would definitely pay to go see him at a club. I also believe he'd be very successful as a sitcom star.

    Geez. I'm not 13 years old, I didn't toss a vote Gary's way because he's hot. :rolleyes I guess you can't be good-looking AND funny.

    I'm old enough to remember Burt Reynolds being a HUGE star and sex symbol in the 70's, and making several comedic movies that apparently an awful lot of people thought were pretty damn funny (although I'm not a Smokey & the Bandit fan myself). Matthew McCougnahey is is gorgeous and has starred in a couple of successful comedies.

    Is it not OK to be easy on the eyes and make us laugh, too?

    Yeah! What she said! {high five!}

    Now, when's the next "We Gary" Fanclub meeting?

    If you actually have to think in order to get the laugh, if the laugh is memorable, if it actually took any measure of skill to write and deliver the joke... These are the reasons I haven't been impressed with Gary.

    Of course.

    But you've gotta make them earn the laugh.
