Episode 2 - September 2
We survived ten performing comics, and one team will
be $50,000 richer - but they will split it with the
audience. So says Jay Mohr, who will be setting up the
stage for the second half of the comics to perform.
However, it's time to finish some old business. The team
with the most votes is... LCS... 2! They all get $5,000
each, but the people who will be eliminated won't be
revealed until the end of the show.
So with that, after another Jay spiel, it's time to see
the second 5 comics of each group. They get 2 minutes
before the mikes get cut off. We'll start with Tere'
Joyce, who is promising new material. Well, we didn't
get to see enough of her to remember her old material.
She brings a drink in a purse and slurps it because they
won't let you drink on the bus. She does repeat her
shrink act from season 1, but she adds to it with a
psychiatrist sketch. She was better than before, but
that's not saying a lot and we see our first comedian in
Being described as the love child between Steven Wright
and Chewbacca, it's Jay London. "Today I videotaped my
hair. Tonight, I'm going to look at the highlights....
Today I bought a package of Ladyfingers, I realized I
was missing a finger. I went back to the store and the
manager gave me the finger... Do you know that they
ribbed condoms and they come with a barbecue sauce?" I
love this guy. He's great.
Rob Cantrell is back with us. He has a girlfriend who
likes to do it Missionary Style, which means they have
to go door to door and say that this is the only way to
do it. He talks about spending 4 weeks in Vegas. "They
say money talks. All mine ever said was See Ya, Bitch."
That's taken right from Red Skelton book of comedy - and
Red did it better. This didn't do for me either and Tere'
now has some company in the Suck Pond.
Corey Holcomb is looking to join Jay in the good graces
department. Uh.... no. "My girlfriend found out that I
was messing around with another chick, so she calls my
wife." He talks about coming out of the closet in the
locker room and I just found him all over the place. Can
we create a wading pool for Corey, Tere' and Rob?
Next up - LCS 1 Champion Dat Phan. He talks about races
and about being called a Mexicanese. "There aren't many
Vietnamese on the air, unless you call John Kerry
jumping out of a boat and attacking my uncle", adding
that they should interview the Vietnamese people to fins
out if Kerry was there. He still shouldn't have won LCS,
but that is the best set that I have ever seen him do
and he is vastly improved from season 1.
Gary Gulman is next, and he tells celery to call up
buffalo wings and to be thankful. He also calls the
walrus something that G-d may have created at the last
second. "I'll put together the seal, the elephant and
Burt Reynolds." This is traditional Gary - meaning
Geoff Brown, who missed the Top 5, comes up, and he
wants to know why the person who gives you the ketchup
packets at the Fast Food place looks like the ketchup is
coming out of his budget. He also goes after bad
motorists and wonder why the onus of sex is on the size
of the man. "I don't have a Ford Excursion, I do have a
Jeep Grand Cherokee. Now ladies, if you have underground
parking, how is that my fault? You talking about drive
around drive around, no, honey, you shouldn't have
parked so many cars in there." Wow. Like Dat, this is
the best that I have ever heard Geoff and I am wondering
where this was for the first season.
Can Kathleen Madigan do anything with that? She goes
after George Bush and his speechmaking, with the people
telling him that George has to act like an adult. As a
democrat, I like her, but how much of the audience did
The last LCS 1 guy is the first person out of the house
- Sean Kent. He talks about having sex and watching the
show. "You could be watching FOX's new show 'Hey put
this in your @$$ for money.'" He also talks about using
marijuana to make Who's The Boss funny and to think that
Bush is invading the moon. Well, it wasn't wonderful,
but there are comics who were infinitely worse than he
was, so he could get a pass.
Someone who will be getting a pass is the final comic
for the night - ANT. "I now live in West Hollywood,
where the men are men - and so are the women. Guys, if
she's got an apple, she's got a banana - and some grapes
and coconuts." He equates the Cub Scouts to drag queens
and allowing gays in the military. "What would scare the
enemies more than me? Hi, Osama!" This is another great
set from a comic that I didn't realize that had that
good material in him and this group may be better than I
After a quick plug for tickets to be in the audience for
LCS3 and a recap of the episode, Jay announced the
eliminated comics. From season one.... Cory Kahaney.
From Season 2.... Jessica Kirson. Well, I can't say I am
surprised by either of the choices, but I was surprised
that LCS2 won the round. As they won that one without
really being on against the LCS1 Powerhouses, then they
will be winning a lot more...
My rankings for this week?
Top Ranked - Jay, Geoff
Good - Dat, ANT
Eh - Sean, Gary, Kathleen
14:59 - Tere', Corey, Rob
Team that should win the first round - LCS2
Gone - Rob, Corey
Next week, we start the next round, when we go four by
four - and some comedians will feel like they have been
hit by one as they are showed the door.
