Neil Hamburger isn't funny. Tom Green isn't funny. Seinfeld isn't funny. Family Guy isn't funny.

mitchell and webb-- the characters are pathetic and stupid so you can never expect anything else of them, so it ceases to be funny really quickly. you just watch them suffer their own stupidity.

there was some similar thing with some shit called the green... wing, or something. it's just unsympathetic characters doing stupid shit-- not funny.

i think you bitches are confusing mean spirited with funny. maybe it's a british social s/m thing.

on the other hand you have awesome shit like black adder, black books (the first 2 series, not the 3rd), mr bean, and fawlty towers, which my wife has by now memorized line by line. oh and the original office-- that was great too-- and i liked extras.

And I fucking hate Jeff Dunham, that one fat boring Mexican, Liza Lampinelli, and Sarah Palin used to be funny but she's really worn her shtick thin.

What? The argument isn't about who is SUCCESSFUL, it is who is comedically relevant. Any random ass guy can come up with some interesting humor, that doesn't mean he constantly plays to packed houses. Same thing about a band -- I wouldn't say "oh, you haven't sold 10 million copies"; I'd say, "What song have you written as good as 'Super Go'?"

You've misunderstood. infinite music wasn't talking about that. I think he's talking about how you told Rob (I think) that he couldn't criticise Tom Green because he himself wasn't a successful comedian.

No, I never criticized him for not being a successful comedian. I "criticized" him for not coming up with anything funny or original himself. Big difference. Success has nothing to do with influencing my opinions in the least -- talent does. See, even if you "hate" Tom Green, it still seems silly to outright dismiss him, since he's a true original, and obviously a comedic genius. It's pointless to criticize him, when he is in a league of his own. I was just asking Rob if he'd come up with any comedic innovations lately. It's not supposed to be some epic argument here, just a genuine question, which would have lead to me illustrating my point a bit better.

There was a time that I liked Louis C.K.

That time has passed.

Doug Stanhope is also predictable shit.

You're an idiot.

So Rob has to make you laugh before his opinion becomes valid?


So you can't have a negative opinion of Tom Green because he's good is basically what you're saying. What if you don't think he's good?

really? even hitler was nice to his secretaries.

anyway, i tried watching some episodes, and while i find that the theory of "comedy is a man in trouble" is generally true, these here are not men, but worms, and watching worms being crushed by passersby is just not funny to me. it's kinda like watching a snuff video, but the slaughter is psychological.

i do get how some people might find humor in that, but i find it too... cynical? nihilistic? can't put my finger on it but the watching became unpleasant after a couple of episodes.

they have another show that made me laugh when they are nazis who begin to think that maybe they are "the baddies"-- but i haven't seen much of that and i don't recall other clips that got my attention. i'll have to re-check it, but i'm currently caught in the absurdity of korean dramas and their irritating slowness.

Interestingly, that's also the only sketch I can remember from the program.
