I've been about as hard on Jay Mohr as about anyone on this board. I'll cut on his line reading of the intros, I'll wince at the mini-sets he does at the live venues, and I'll even talk about his many hidden connections (like a common manager) to some of the other contestants.
But in truth, I don't hate the guy. Far from it.
I've seen and heard him be funny in the past in other venues. And while I may not like the web of conflicting obligations he has as producer, it's realistic that a working comic trying to be a producer would have such common ties with other comics.
So I thought it would be nice to have a place to talk about the paradox that is Jay Mohr. Is he just SO inappropriate for crappy network TV when he's actually doing his prime material that he just looks bad in comparison on LCS? Is the host job of LCS a thankless task that ANYONE would look bad doing? Or am I personally full of crap and is he great on LCS?
Who else could we see as host if the franchise ever changed? What could this other person (or even Jay himself) do differently as host?
etc. etc. etc.
