i think if kathleen would have been more active or vocal in the house or challenges, she would have had a head start on the fan base before the finals. i like her, and would have been happy to see her come in second, behind heffron...

But, but, but...please keep in mind that Kathleen had NO CONTROL over how her participation in the house & challenges was edited. Maybe she WAS active and vocal, and we just didn't see it.
It's no secret that Kathleen is a talented professional, highly respected by the others. I mean, would you want to compete in a slam-dunk contest against Kobe Bryant? My sense of the other comedians is that this is how they felt about Kathleen's level of experience.
I'm sorry she's gone from the competition, too. I don't think she had her best set Tuesday night. But I voted for her anyway because I already knew how good she *could* be based on past performances.
one way of looking at it -
kathleen didn't get much exposure in the house, either because she didn't do or say much worth airing, or because of editing all of her hilarious antics out....so she was handicapped at the finals because she didn't build up a fan base beforehand
other way of looking at it -
since she didn't get much exposure from the house,
kathleen should have come out with her 'a' material in the finals and blown everyone away, since they had all burned up some of their 'a' material to stick around
tammy got exposure in the house, and she probably lost the finals because people didn't like the way she was too much like ant, manipulating people are coming across as less than sweet....she obviously figured this out and tried to kiss up to the fans at home during the finals
so, no exposure for kathleen could have been bad or it could have helped her out, depending on how you look at it
In another chat group that shall remain namelss, a bunch of people, some of them comedians, are ranting and raving about how Kathleen got robbed and how they think the show is rigged. What do people here think of this? Frankly, I just don't see it. It doesn't matter who has the most successful career; in this case I just didn't think she showed herself to be one of the three funniest. Maybe she can be over the long term, but not from what we saw. Also, for someone as successful as she has been, I found her tics (laughing at her own jokes, interrupting herself to say thank you) distracting. I did find some of her act funny, and totally appreciate her clean, friendly style of humor, but I really don't buy into any theory that she lost because the show was rigged or because the voters are sexist. Personally, I don't think Gary is one of the three funniest, but I'm not sure I thought she was either...
I think Kathleen is hilarious but it hurt her in the show that she never performed in any head to head competitions. She flew below the radar and never got much exposure, I think in the end that is what hurt her. I have seen her act many time and she is very funny, but didn't get a following.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
I agree, Clipse.

i know she has been around for a while......
and someone said they didn't even air her best bits from making it to the house....
so how could she not put better material together for the finals????
really....i know i've heard people do the whole fish/alien abduction scenario....
kind of irritating how she laughs at her own jokes....
i kinda like her overall, but her monotonous delivery gets old quick
/voting for heffron because i'm tired of alonzo's racist jokes
Oh, I loved that joke! She was my pick to win it all, but I`m still glad that John did. He is very funny too.
