Episode 4 - September 14
We are at the end of the first round of four, and I
can tell you that some things don't change. The first
one is that the $50,000 once again goes to season 2, who
has won everything up to this point and celebrated with
a group mosh pit celebration. The other thing that
doesn't change - the lowest rated comic for each season
is going bye-bye.
Jay talks about wishing the Floridians well, and then
reminds all of them that they could always move to CA
with the earthquakes and mudslides, or Nebraska, with
the tornados and boredom. Jay goes after the people form
Indiana, calling them all fat and white, and then
mentioning - 'well, there goes the ratings from
Indiana.' Based on the ratings for the past week,
Indiana should be the least of your concerns.
Now, it's time to see who is in the bottom. From season
1 - Tess and Rob Cantrell. From Season 2 - Tammy
Pescateli and Jay London. Those 4 people get to sweat
while we get to eight comedic performances.
First, an appraisal - Season 1 says that they are the
underdogs, but Dave Mordal adds that if the underdogs
want them to win, they better start voting. On season 2,
the comics are all about the braggadocio. Tammy, 'I'd
like to thank the comics form Season 1. It's so nice to
see them when I pull up, and they take my keys and park
my car.' Alonzo - 'We're saving funny for season 6.'
Apparently, according to the ratings, you are.
We get back to the comedy - and with Sean Kent. He jokes
about having cancer and the doctor having good news -
and him saying that the good news better not be that
they are switching to Geico. He goes after Bush, talking
about them barring masturbation and about getting
married to a goat. 'If you can get a goat to say 'I Do',
then you deserve to marry it...Then the guy goes, if
it's the goat, don't have him calling...he's always
naggging me.' Sean was very good, and once again, I have
to ask, where in the world was this for his season?
Next up - John Heffron. He talks about how his brother
gets himself into trouble by continuing to yell , 'I
can't breathe' and then he counters it by annoying
everyone with playing with the door jam. He talks about
getting revenge on his dad by inviting him in his place
and turning up the air conditioner. He was also very
good and it looks like the comics have brought their 'A'
Can Geoff Brown follow up his good set last time around?
Maybe, as he talks about losing another $50,000 - like
getting $50,000 in Chuck E. Cheese's coupons. He's
naming his new daughter Gabrielle, (instead of Shaniqua)
so that she has a fighting chance to get a job. He also
talks about people with big-head babies. 'You don't need
a kid that uses his feet to guide the stroller.' Sean
was better, but he was good.
Jay battles the microphone stand - but maybe it was the
stand's way of protesting being used by Todd Glass. Todd
talks about how adopting a baby will get him votes. He
talks about how Jeopardy people can't write their own
name, and he talks about guys who are cool - but aren't.
He redoes the cop sketch - but with the person driving
whining at the cop yelling, 'Baby's going to give me a
ticket?'. He continues with bathroom graffiti and ends
it with a plea for votes. Yes, it is as funny as it
sounds. Unfortunately, he has a voting fan base, so
until it gets to the end, we're stuck with him for
Someone who I was dreading but who raised his game is
Dat Phan. He talks about adopting white babies, while
people adopt cambodians, who complain that they want to
go to Disneyworld. He also chats about how we need to
feed the poor in the U.S. and he wants Chow Yun Fat to
talk about the poor white kids in the U.S. 'This girl is
so poor, that she doesn't have a cell phone...wait, she
has one, but it doesn't have a good calling plan.' He is
very funny tonight, which shocks me.
After Dat is another three lettered comic - ANT. He
talks about the celebrities that complain about the fans
- then reminds them that those people are the same ones
that give them the money to begin with, He then goes
into Hitler on Prozac and then talks about having sex on
the lawn. 'I call up the police saying that there is a
girl and two guys having sex. I am asked what the girl
looks like? A Whore!' He ends it by repeating the
woman's fantasy to sleep with men skit. It was funny, if
not tasteless. Will America go into tasteless?
Dave Mordal comes in and tells everyone to never let
season 2 do your hair. He also talks about trying to
copy that home improvement tv shows the real version of
Home Improvement. 'Hi, welcome to Things You'll never
finish. We were going to do the roofing today, but if
you were watching COPS last night, you've seen where my
crew is.' He also talks about his dad and his camping
misadventures with his dad. 'If he was JFK's Chauffeur,
he'd still be alive.' He is very funny, as usual, though
a little bit more cutting edge this time.
Kathleen Madigan talks about Celine Dion's $250 ticket -
which is how much she'd pay to shut her up. She also
talks about the Sigfried and Roy show - and how she is
amazed that the crowd had to be told the show was over.
'What do you want for $75? You just saw a full grown man
eaten, what more do you want?...They said it was an hour
and a half. There's still one left - make him do a
trick.' She also talks about guardian angels and
religion, wondering if a Jehova's Witness believes that
only 144,000 people get into heaves, then why are they
going door to door trying to get more? She, like Dave,
is both funny and just as edgy.
We get the standard phone here to vote shtick, and then
we bring back the parade of people from last week. Rob
Cantrell and Tess are on stage, as is Tammy Pescatelli
ad Jay London. The evictees are....Rob Cantrell from
Season 1 and...Tammy Pescatelli from Season 2. Rob humps
Tess on stage, grabs a bottle of booze and takes a swig
out of it, before giving it to Jay, who also takes a
swig. Nice. Tammy just hugs Jay.
Don't forget to vote! Let's see who I voted for...
Top Ranked - Dave, Kathleen, John, Sean
Good - Dat
Eh - ANT, Geoff
14:59 - Todd
Well, if you based the ejections on comedy, then Todd
and Geoff are going bye bye. This isn't based just on
comedy, though - this is based on popularity, and hence,
you can throw Sean and ANT into the mix. I think,
unfortunately, that Todd sticks around at the expense of
ANT, while Geoff sticks around at the expense of Sean.
We will see who leaves - and if the shrinking of comics
means the rising of ratings - on the next episode.
