Personally, I thought two-thirds of it was really funny & original/creative. I thought about one-third of it was formulatic & predictable, what I would call "chuckle" humor. But even that one-third I thought was okay, just not great.
Hey Pudding, I appreciate that you're really into having an academic conversation on what is funny and what is not, but can you have it on some other comic's material and not my own? 😁

Wish it showed the tally so far

Also, if I vote and hit refresh, it appears to let me vote again?

Known issue? Not really adding the extras?

Sorry man. Didn't mean to offend you. Thought I was kinda defending you because I thought the didn't laugh once comment was really unfair and not truthful.

I noticed that my dissection of comedy posts were starting to derail the thread, so I started another thread "Talking Funny". I have an open question to you and Noodle over there. Also, encouraged people to come here and vote for you. On the brightside my over-posting in this thread helped keep it on page 1 and more people have seen it. (just trying to make myself look like less of a dick lol)

It's a little risky to do this joke because it'll be awkward if you're talking about how comics don't always bomb their first time while you are bombing your first time. Have a line that you can use if this material falls flat to call attention to that. So if you're getting crickets, then pause for a few moments, soak in the silence, and say "or maybe those comics were telling the truth."



Another good premise, but the examples aren't strong enough. Try something where the girl is like "I'm just looking for a man who is humble, and giving, and would sacrifice himself for the ones he loves." And he's like, "I'm Jesus." And she's like "Yeah, and also someone who is rich, well dressed and good looking."

12 disciples cock blocking him is another good angle to take.
Holy **** loled

I don't know the vote totals, but hopefully all of you are keeping me up near the top. I'm worried about Kimrie because she has r&b singer Anthony Hamilton tweeting out to his half million followers to vote for her. Luckily I don't need to be number 1, just top 4. Keep it up guys! Do it for poker players everywhere!

I actually watched all of the Leonid video.

It was just a guy telling a boring story about an audition. There literally wasn't a joke in it at all. Was I supposed to laugh at some point? I have no idea which part of it was supposed to be funny, if any?

I think the humor is supposed to be how he says "super" very enthusiastically but then at the end when whatever happens (I forget the story and I'm not gonna watch it again) is not so awesome, his "super" becomes much more toned down and unsure of itself.

Okay now some news:

Brag: I just got accepted to the Maine Comedy Festival, my first festival acceptance.

Beat: The dates don't work because they would be the same time as the festival that I'd get to perform at if I win this contest, and they are requiring all comics to get to the resort 3 days before any shows start for activities. That sounds fun, but I can't take a week off of work for 2 nights of shows in Maine.

I can't even imagine what format of contest would result in both Spaceman and Leonid being "finalists". Even YTF is orders of magnitude better than that guy.
