Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

After seeing what won, I fully expect to score all zeros from here on out. That is not meant to disparage Cander or his choice in comedy at all since comedy is subjective. I just don't think we are on the same wavelength. It's cool and I'm still looking forward to there rest of the reveal

Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

Thanks, xander! I know what you meant. It seems kind of schlocky, but it gets hold of you. I grew up watching these guys, in the later part of their career. They hold the record for the most appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show, so Ed, at least, thought they were really funny.

It was hard finding something to fit the time limit, and this was only part of a longer sketch.

Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

Just searched that pragent video code in POG; turns out it was first posted in the POG pub in October by amplify, then xander in December AND I would have seen it because I posted asking a question about statz two posts after xander posted it. I remember coming across it first on facebook, but maybe subconsciously thought "xander would like this" after I saw you posted it

Great video anyway

Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

I don't think that would have done too well. It's either something that I'd never find funny because I'm not into sports or something I'd have to warm up to with quite a bit of viewing.

Bill Burr is my favourite stand-up comedian, but his latest Netflix special (which this clip is from) is by far his worst work, so I wouldn't suggest starting with that. You can't really go wrong with any of his earlier specials, though.

These are the 2 clips I normally show people to see if they would like his stuff:

Yeah, I actually would not have really submitted that. It is not really a comedy skit but a joke with a long time getting to the punch line.

Most of the stuff I find funny you have already heard and is pretty mainstream.

Gorge Carlin on God and Religion is a classic - my all time favourite
(I saw him live in Vegas years ago)

Kevin Meany had some good stuff

John Pinette did too (theme park slide is funny)

My type of humour is mostly this...

Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

hey guys, just to let you know:

I've listened to round 3 a couple of times and I'm not sure on the order. I'm gonna sleep on it and listen to them and rank them tomorrow.

I know I said 2 reveals this weekend, but this wouldn't be a walrus without scheduling setbacks now would it...

thanks for your patience and understanding

Re: Comedy Walrus - Reveal Thread

bah, was hoping Max and Ivan would do better

they're incredible performers, and brilliant physical comedians

strongly considered going with the below, but I think that while the final punchline is just incredible it's not as consistently funny as the video I posted
