I’m so angry over last night’s episode of “Last Comic Standing”. Without a shadow of a doubt the producers of NBC are stupid, and last night’s episode proved it. Dan Naturman was the best of the bunch last night – hands down, no argument. And yet he was sent home.
Jay London? He’s a one note comic – he makes puns, he does one-liners – bad ones at that. I’m sorry, but a one-liner comic cannot do a weekly network sitcom! However, a quirky hilarious comedian that has a LOT of personality can totally lead a television show. I know *I* would tune in to see Dan Naturman! If Dan had gotten in it would have been FABULOUS to see him and Kathleen Madigan make it to the final two (you KNOW it would have come down to those two because they are the most hilarious ones, although Gary Gulman would be a close third).
What pisses me off is that Jay London is gonna get the boot in the first couple of weeks BECAUSE HE’S NOT FUNNY, making it POINTLESS for the producers to have put him through for the “interesting house dynamics” that they are looking for. I will not vote for any comedian who has the line, “You’ll get this joke on the way home, sir.” That’s the most hackneyed line and I HATE it when comedians say it.
Stupid. Stupid stupid stupid.
