Tough Crowd!

Heads up. Janeane & her Air America friends (I think Lizz Winstead, Marc Maron and Al Franken) are on Colin Quinn in a few minutes.

Yeah, doesn't being a comedian depend quite a bit on your audience being able to understand at least SOME of the words you say???

I hate this shit where everybody talks over each other and no one can get ANY kind of point across! I like the idea of round table discussions and I like the idea of it being with people who are funny. But can't we lose the BAD sketches and mushmouthed host? I miss Bill Maher when he's on hiatus, and I REALLY miss that he's not on five nights a week any more. But it's a trade off in that he's got more freedom to say whatever the FUCK he wants on HBO, plus it's an hour long so people don't have to fight as much to complete their sentences. It's actually only about 45 minutes, but I think that's longer than he would have on a non-premium-cable channel if you subtract the time commercials would take up. That's another plus: they don't have to race or compete to get a complete thought out before a commercial! Bill's not back until July fucking 30th, unfortunately!

My mom was just telling me that he's on Leno quite a lot evidently. I wouldn't know. Who the hell could watch that fucking show. "Larry Sanders" ruined even the BEST talk shows for me by showing what happens behind the curtain. But Leno would be bad regardless. Didn't Leno used to be FUNNY, by the way? Or is it just that I was young and stupid at the time when I used to laugh at him? I mean, I used to think "Three's Company" was funny too, but now I'll watch those same episodes (not even just the LATER episodes) and see that it WASN'T.

jesus buttfucking JOSEPH! I'm all OVER the goddamn place here!!! Time for me to SHUT UP! Sorry.

Leno was never funny. He surrounded himself with funny people. Leno was at his best when O.J. was in the news... and that's not saying much because ANYONE can make fun O.J. and be funny.

In conclusion, I would pay money to watch Jay Leno get eaten by a bear and/or a condor.

You're FUCKING kidding me!!! With that "Dancing Itos" bullshit???? No, no, no. What I was talking about was back in the 80s, when Leno was a frequent guest on "Late Night with David Letterman".

Kinda like how 3v3+Z is at his best when he's posting angry addle-brained incomprehensible hogwash.

with all the ass licking going on in here it's odd this topic is called Tough Crowd, zing zang zong , dick dicka doo, sorry Ihaven't smoked yet and Colin Quin has some intelligent funny stuff to say he just can't get it passed his lips. Jay Leno is a bit stealing third rate hack who looks like a bobble head doll and the only reason people find him funny is because TV tells people "he's funny, he's host of a classic comedy show, blah blah blah, dick dicka doo"

colin Q. on Ben Stiller show is quite funny

I just got the B stiller show DVD's and while the celeb guest bits are usually pretty dull the colin quinn one is pretty funny. He does this Henry Rollins- Robert Bly boxing guru thing that is better than any skit i ever saw him do on snl

He never even did skits on SNL because he can't fucking act. They just put him behind the WU desk and let him muddle through week after week with shitty writing and mushmouthed delivery.

However, I saw some reality show on Comedy Central where he punched a bald guy and made fun of Dennis Leary, so that made me

I still don't think he's that talented, but I have a whole new kind of respect for him.
