I SO agree here. Clark was disgustingly bad. Bellamy is pretty good.One noticeable improvement over last year is the sheer force of energy being delivered by our new host—Bill Bellamy. Compared to last year’s overly made-up, stiff as cardboard and uncomfortable in the role of host Anthony Clark…Bill is doing what a good MC does, he’s getting our energy up and making us believe that we’re in for one heck of a show.
Also that Ant seemed to laugh at EVERY gay joke, even the bad ones.Jason is gay. It is unfortunate but too often true that gay stand-up comedians often talk about nothing other than being gay. (cough, cough, Ant, cough.)
Holy obscure joke, Batman!The line is STILL stretching all the way to the stadium where Roy Hobbs is tearing the cover off the ball playing for the New York Knights.
I also FREAKING LOVED THAT LINE!Meanwhile, Joe DeVito explained that he “never said he wanted to be rich and famous. I just want the power to crush people’s dreams. That’s all I want.”
On any other reality show, that’d make him the villain. On Last Comic Standing, you just want to reach through the tv and pinch his cheek. You go, Joe! Crush away!
At least what we saw of it sucked. Which means he got a free pass because of who he was basically. And another later, because I don't think his actual performance was all that great either.It’s interesting—Gerry’s audition set isn’t super strong.
Maybe it was a gimmick... but I liked it to. Maybe it wasn't as good as a guy in a gorilla suit, but it was okay.Angela Mairorando-Thurston is up next talking about how people say she sounds like a lot of other people. Well, she looks like Carol Kane and sounds a little like Maria Bamford—so, I’m buying this. She says that people say she sounds a little like Darth Vader. To me, that’s pretty funny. She then acts it out…sounding not like the Sith Lord, but instead sounding like Lina Lamont (from “Singing in the Rain.”) The judges…not as charmed by this as I was...
To me, while the 2nd jokes was BETTER, it was still... not that great. And his actual act later on was... okay. But far from the best. I think he was a producer pick for some reason.Don’t get me wrong, I like Billy’s second joke far more than his dyslexic sign painter joke. But countless others were chased away within seconds of starting their 3 minutes without a helpful “why don’t you try a different approach” coaching.
I wasn't familiar with her before this, but what I saw was pretty much genius. And she plays her stereotypical lesbian appearance as a single note in a much bigger act... but plays it masterfully. She's pretty much the very definition of "butch lesbian" in appearance, but she's a rounded person who seems to be funny on all fronts. As you say, the anti-Ant. Who like you, I also loathe.Sabrina is the anti-Ant. Sabrina is as butch as lesbians come—you just know that she recently donated a bunch of leather vests to Goodwill because that time has past—but THAT’S NOT THE ONLY THING IN HER LIFE…in fact, that’s not even the most important thing to her. She does comedy about more than just being gay…not that she hides her being gay from anyone, it just doesn’t totally define her as a comedian.
And she’s damn funny.
Great recap job, oh comedic one! I recall commiserating along with you about Dat "beating" Dave in Season 1, and its good that we are both still here!
