In this post I continue to sacrifice myself for the greater good with these heretical statements that I have kept dormant. You too can start forest fires. Stand up wise, Lewis Black would smoke Jerry Seinfeld. Smoke him I say!! Let's be honest, Jerry doesn't make tears come to your eyes and have your sides tearing. Lewis's Super Bowl rant when he said the god awful MTV was to music as Kentucky Fried Chicken is to chicken. Then calling Aerosmith, NSync, and Britney Spears the trifecta from hell was genius. His only way to escape the horror show? "See, it ok cause I had a spoon in my hand. And I shoved it up my ass. Cause if I'm gonna hurt that bad. I'm gonna do it to myself. Oprah calls that empowerment."

The KFC and Trifecta bits are hack-like. Worse than Bania, and without all hope of mentoring. Lewis should turn to prop comedy and have his nostrils flared. Maybe switch his names and becomed Black Lewis. Then, maybe some would confuse him with RICHARD Lewis (who wears black) and think he's actually funny.

How's that?

Starbucks is everywhere. There's one on every corner. Sometimes, you're in Starbucks and there's another one right across the street. Next week, they're gonna open one in my ass.

That's gold, Chiles. Gold!

*restrains self for greater good* I've been hanging around Jimmy too much. Temper not good. C'mon Chiles, you're hung up on routines from the sixties man!! Some of Jerry's stand-up's are painful. Some though are funny. I don't know if anyone else saw it but, Jerry Stiller's Roast was hilarious. Some comic mentioned that the rest of the Seinfeld cast would have been there(ex. George) but they were all recuperating because they all broke their backs carrying Jerry. Put Lewis Black on a stage against Jerry, no, no, in the Roman Colisieum with one monologue joke to tell. Who get's thrown to the lions? I'm afraid it would Golden Boy's last stand.

I don't know... I think of the two Jerry is much more unique. I mean, most bits I've heard from Lewis Black (not many, I admit) have to do with pop culture, which most comedians do in one way or another. I like that Jerry's comedy is more philosophical, and very seldom does he mention items of pop culture.

Good, a Rio sighting.

No, Drake, I wan not speaking really spekaing to Jerry v. Lewis but, rather, Lewis v. anyone! Wink I saw his act. He just doesn't do it for me. I'll take Chapelle any day with respect to "newer" comedians. I don't think he played in the sixites!(?) Embarassed

Jerry's comedy is so unique, because it's not typical setup and punchline. It really just seems like he's in an actual conversation with the audience. It doesn't seem like he's reciting a memorized bit (which is of what he's doing, but he does it so effortlessly). Very conversational.

By the way, I really need to see more of George Carlin. I have never seen anything of his.

CJ, if you haven't seen Carlin much, you should - though he was a contemporary of Bozo! Smile

Try to get the Hippie Dippy Weatherman stuff, "Well, man, there will be no weather in Philadelphia tomorrow", or the sportscaster, "And now for some scores, 87-84, 96-79, 103-102, and 117-53 in overtime."

"There is no blue food".

Some like Seinfeld for his observational comedy. Carlin was one of the early masters.

Chapelle is way up there on my ladder. I'm about to march on the Comedy Central building because I heard his new season is canceled, all production's been halted. I don't know I guess I like stuff you don't have to think about.

HatetheDrake, thank you for reminding my of Chappelle. i can't believe i forgot about him. I haven't even seen his show, which i heard is amazing. But i once saw one of his stand-up specials on Pay-per-view, and it was hilarious. Although it's pretty vulgar and crude, you can't undermine his talent.

Richard Lewis is f**kin' awesome! Saw him in Chicago in '88 or something. Remember the sitcom (Anything But Love) he had with Jamie Lee Curtis? Watched every episode just cause he was on it.

Some great shows that didn't last...

The George Carlin Show (George Carlin -with "Jimmy" bartending)
Men Behaving Badly (Rob Schneider and Justine Bateman)
The Jackie Thomas Show (Tom Arnold)


Never heard of Lewis Black or Chappelle. Shocked

Saw Richard Lewis the Saturday before last in San Jose at the Improv. Too bad Leonard Maltin was not in attendance. He just killed.
