I rewatched sincerely in preparation for his new special and holy **** it was just so hilarious.
my personal favs are burr and giraldo but really hard to argue that there is anyone with a better complete collection of material than CK dude is just flat out a comedic genius and can't think of a single special of his I didn't think was hilarious.
actually thought sorry was on the lower part of his list of specials. only remarkable part was the good will hunting bit I mentioned imo. thought sincerely was far better, don't know if watching both for the first time in a week affected my opinion.
yeah spur of the moment caught louie in chicago couple weeks ago and was fairly disappointed. must have been the same set as sorry bc there was a goodwill bit. some banana jokes, obese people, ect. if that’s the same one.
seemed like he was trying really hard to both accept and diminish the plight of queer folk and it didn’t land for me.
louie filmed a scene for his show in beijing that i don't recall if it made it into the show or not but he was high school buddies with one of the more prominent expats out there who rented out and entire peking opera house and convinced him to perform in it
was pretty awesome, sadly, he went into it thinking that it'd be a chinese audience when nearly everyone there was american so he had a lot of jokes tailor made for chinese people that felt a little off given there were very few chinese in the theater that sat hundreds
How on Earth can anyone think Mark Normand is meh on stage?
Yea agree with this. Mark Normand is really good. I’m also a big fan of Jeff Dye. Saw him 2 times at funny bone and he’s solid.
Anyone here listen to “are you trash” podcast? H Foley and Kevin Ryan are both funny. I saw them in Atlantic City a few years back when I was there for a poker trip. Thought they were solid for playing a small room. H Foley’s set is really good if you ask me however it seems he does the same one all the time (saw a YouTube clip of his set in 2015 and it was same a few years later). Not saying these guys are great comics but they are solid for mid level.
