OK, I will give you the "He's better than Bill Bellamy" defense. touche.
Hey, everyone I'm about to thank... thanks!
(Thanks for saying nice things first!)
I mean, thanks.
(I know what words to use where.)
Sorry you are sad, happy you are nice.
And if this helps any, I haven't been a comedian as long as broccoli has been a vegetable. So ratio-wise, you haven't been missing out for as long.
Though, I don't cause as many stomach issues. Maybe?
I am glad you like reading and listening to things about reading.
Much appreciated, everyone. Thanks for watching and keeping doing it if you do!
If you guys don't have Vegan Mind Meld yet, waste no more time! I probably have listened to it once a day since I got it. Let's financially support the comedians we like! Yaay!
Eyes are the losers in the skies.
I missed it because I'm in the process of moving and my television doesn't work when it's not plugged in. How did Myq look? I'll have to catch it some other way. Is there anywhere I can peep this episode?
I was so distracted by my sense of grievance, I forgot to mention how much I hated the crowd. They were screaming so much at everything even resembling a joke that they completely ruined the rhythm and repeatedly sucked the funny out of tags that would have been hilarious.
I make stuff.
Thanks for the kind words, gang. (I'm imagining all of you around one computer.) And Brasky, in the words of John Candy's character in "Splash": "If something works, I stick with it!"
Why are you blocking my joy?
This show is killing life. And suffocating our freedoms. Someone should tell an adult or a senator or something about this show and what it is doing.
yikes, looks like future tapings have an arrival time of 1045a & 1030a
Not the best time to see stand-up, even if they start to go on around noon. I'm sure most the comics will still do fine though.
At the taping, Myq made a comment about the previous comic that performed and got some big laughs from it, and Kindler told him it was great that he took a risk and said something he just thought of right there, but said hopefully it doesn't work against him in the editing (meaning if they went out of sequence or something). They ended up not showing it at all, and I can't seem to remember what he said. He also went on stage at a point where the audience had seen more than their fair share of comics and were getting a little restless, and he was able to bring a lot of energy back into the room/theater.
Myq, what was the comment/joke that got cut out, and how do I go about getting more vegetables in my diet/suitcase?

I enjoyed a fair amount of the comedy, especially Myq and Chip's sets. There's going to be a second semi-final right? Just making sure that James Adomian didn't get cut out of the whole affair. I'm really sad that I'm probably never going to get to see R.O.Manse on prime-time television, but I knew there probably wasn't a large chance of that happening, but what's life without hope. I hope that Myq Kaplan can keep bringing it, since the first two parts of his performances I've seen have been great, and I thoroughly enjoyed Vegan Mind Meld.
The editing on this show confuses me, it seems like most of the reaction shots arent for the joke that is being told at that time. Im glad that Myq and Mike made it.
I like that Jesse Joyce's "comedian in a movie" character that never happens in real life is a spot-on impersonation of Graham Elwood.
Also, I forgot to comment about that cat that Craig was holding at the very beginning. (Slipped my mind after sitting through the rest of the two hours.) Anyway, that cat was kinda disturbing. It looked uncomfortable. And its eyes were growdy.
The "reaction" shots are mostly just there so they can cleanly edit out jokes (or stutters, or pauses, or a couple superfluous words, or whatever). They don't care that the reactions don't match the jokes. They don't think people notice.
If anyone else gets the CD, I don't require that level of commitment.
But I appreciate it!
All you have to do is have a camera crew come to your house and say "we want to show things that you do normally, but wackier."
And I honestly don't remember exactly what I said either.
(Too in the moment to activate memory, and now the world is deprived of a thing. Sorry, world. I'll give you other things.)
Thanks again everyone, applause breaks edited in for all!
