Title: overdone comedy routines from non-funny people
Post by: pete on July 08, 2004, 03:01:31 PM
I'm sick of the following impressions from people who think they're funny:
ghetto thug
perky califronia girl
gay dude with a lisp

and I'm sick of traffic stories, I just don't think driving is all that funny, but people love telling traffic related stories.

now it's your turn.  let it all out.

I'm tired of black people doing routines about white people, cause if it was the other way around there would be trouble. For the record im hispanic so as a minority im allowed to say this, if any of you suburbanite crackas agree with me you're in for a world of hell.

Some people can make fun of white people well... so I don't mind that as much.

Sick of:

-Comedians whose acts consist of mainly (or only) doing impersonations of thier ethnic parents.

- Comedians who think that a joke is strong enough to come back to over and over throughout the act... especially if the joke wasn't that good to start with.

- ANY Aarnold Scharzeneggar impersonation that lasts more than two seconds.

NOW, they are not funny. A few months ago, some were funny, like conan's

Conan's one of the exceptions... his impersonations (and most of the ones done on his show) sound nothing like the person being impersonated.

Conan does the same stuff every night. with the dance where he cuts the string, jumping in and out of the shot, "stay cool my babies" i love conan, but it gets old.

Margaret Cho does a good Perky California Girl and she absolutely owns the Ethnic Mother impression.  She's the only one who does it well but she does do it well.

Comedians whose acts consist main of impersonations of celebrities.

Constant anger.  Some people like Lewis Black and George Carlin have it down, but I've seen quite a few comics who are angry but not funny.

A good deal of the people who "only appear on a Vh1 countdown or of the like type of show" are really funny people who don't have enough coverage yet. (though I haven't a clue who  you're talking about specifically)

DC does say "fuckin" a lot, but he more than makes up for it.

- People who rely on thier gimic too much
- People who think just making funny faces is good stand up material
- Peope who release a cd, do four comedy specials, and tour for seven years all with the same 30 jokes.
- The entire Blue Collar Comedy tour

i think i can speak for everyone in that this guys act is the most overused and just plain annoying........his sh*t is so phucking unfunny and embarrasing its sad.....he reminds me of that guy in high school that sat next to you in history class and would make these stpuid jokes and keep turing around     to look at you  to see if you  were laughing with him every 5 seconds...........

picolas,  i think you may have the best choice next to RK and the arnie impersonations-thats very unfunny also......


BUT  "gay  dude w/ lisp" will always be funny b/c they [in hindsight] are doing really bad impersonnations of a womans voice....

and i would like to  add wanda sykes...

There's this one guy who's done one or two stand-up shows for Comedy Central that I absolutely despise. When just seeing him on screen I am consumed in red hot seering hatred. He's the guy who starts to tell a joke, but by the end of it he either a) gets out of breath or b) thinks that what he's about to say is so funny he tries to hold back the laughter while still talking. And he does this for EVERY SINGLE JOKE, without fail. He's balding too. I think. And he looks like the dad on ALF, if that helps.

Anyone have any idea who this guy is?

Does he have a Southern and/or gay accent?  Your description sounds familiar.

I knew that kid.  I hated that kid.

Another overused routine:  "...you might be a redneck."

As for the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, I watched the "Git 'er done" guy's special, and it was not funny.  Maybe it is a cultural thing.  I thought Ron White was the best one on the BCC.  Foxworthy and the other guy were okay.

you sure it's holding back the laughter?  'cause there's a guy that kinda fits that description, but he sounds more like he's about to cry at every routine, biting on his knucles and such.

speaking of comedy central presents, I can't stand Dane Cook!  I don't know why people love him so much.  I hate routines where a guy talks about how crazy he acted to strangers and how the normal strangers react to his craziness.  That shit is not funny unless there's a camera, and most time even that's barely funny.

What I cannot stand is the black comedians that talk about how different black and white people are. How their momma yelled all the time and they had to listen or they'd get a beatin'! Also the 'men-and-woman-are-SO-different' routine.

And the comedians that scream at you. As if the reason you are not laughing is because you could not hear. No, we can hear, you're just not funny.

Gah. Hyper-ness is another one. All over the stage...yelling, screaming, acting shit out. Damn, if your joke is not funny on it's own, and you have to act it out- you should find another career.

Random Female Comedian : 'So last night my husband wants to have sex. 2 minutes later, when he's done [laughter], I start to talk to him and he's ASLEEP [insanity in the crowd] ... so then I go to the toilet, I sit down, and the seat was lifted ! [hilarity ensues]...'

Or anything that starts with : 'Have you ever noticed how men and women are different ! Here are a couple of hilarious differences that'll make you say : 'SO TRUE''

Probably the worst EVER.

Also, whenever any comedians have to dress up like women, fat people, fat women, white people, fat white people, fat white women, or the mentally handicapped.  The only comedian in the last 20 years that has been able to play any of those roles and still be genuinely funny is Eddie Murphy, and even he couldn't do it anymore since his brother Charlie is now in possession of the Murphy Family Funny.

It is as if you were describing this Mexican comedian:

(http://u.univision.com/contentroot/uol/art/images/tv/utv/2003/11/110603fd_adal_chat3.jpg)
Adal Ramones.

He used to make me laugh, 5 years ago.  After two years of repeating the same jokes.... he got annoying. I hear he still does the same jokes.

Oh, and he's the owner of the Krispy Kreme  franchise at Mexico.

The Simpsons was also onto this type of comedienne where a woman was doing stand-up to an audience of women.  She just says, "Men," and the whole audience boos.  Homer changes the channel right away and says, "Cancelled."
