Well, my theory that this whole "wild card" round was but another ploy by Producer Barry Katz to keep Ant on the show somehow seems to have crumbled, but only somewhat. As another poster pointed out, the top 5 have been ignored this week so that America can be force-fed all of the rejects one more time. The fact that Ant was surrounded by 4 other rejects is merely cover for Katz's Ant/Gulman marketing project, aka Last Comic Standing.
That said, I'd like to air my support for wild card winner Jay London. I think that some don't quite get that his "jokes" are not supposed to be very funny. It's his persona that his fans really enjoy. Remember last night when he got a huge laugh on a one-liner that made very little sense? He said, "Oh! That works." I think he's surprised he gets laughs for a lot of his "jokes" because they are intended to be GROANERS, and are really and truly the SET-UP for his real punchlines which are, "I'm sorry," "This will all be over soon," "Let's listen to the air conditioning now, shall we?"
Even his visual appearance is designed with comedic structure in mind. He comes out looking like the stand-in geek for Ozzy Osbourne, but is the complete opposite personality wise. He's polite, apologetic, and humble. Love him or hate him, this is a man who's put a great deal of thought into creating his act, and it stands out because it's unique. Everyone else is up there doing your typical cookie-cutter stand-up -- some better than others -- but clearly nothing that new.
Jay, if you read this board, here's my advice: Make your one-liners even worse, and write new and more clever apologies for when they bomb. For example:
"Best job I ever had was picking grapefruit, but I became bitter....I said I became.... I'm sorry. I'll take that one out. If it makes you feel any better, I have a fungus."
And like a fungus, this guy's growing on me. You go, Jay!
