    A few weeks ago, a caller complemented Benji's laugh. Until that day, Id never even noticed it. Since then, I hear it constantly. Benji never had a live mic before. You could tell because most times when Howard went to him, the mic was off, and Benji would have to repeat himself.

    Now there's no doubt his mic is hot and he is doing more fake laughing than Fred.

    Annoying.

    Yeah, you're dumb if you've never heard it. I've always heard it. The mic isn't live. His laugh is picked up by other mics.

    The poster by that name blocked me and I think it was because I didn't hate Chriza :nojj:

    benjy's laugh sounds authentic, at least in old YouTube clips... I don't listen to the new shows. Fred's seems forced often times.

    I might have to start listening again. Howard must be getting to the middle of the notebook full of ideas.

    He's always laughed, but since that call he's been laughing more and it is annoying. I didn't mind the laugh two times a show, now it's 10+ a show. For the record, I do like old Benjy before Elisa.

    Although he's rarely capable of being funny when he speaks, I actually find Benjy's laugh authentic and revealing. Nine out of ten times that he laughs, he's the only one in that studio laughing. What that usually reveals is that he pays closer attention than anyone else, and that he has an appreciation for absurdity and irony that is lost on the rest of them. Fred and Robin laugh when they think Howard's trying to be funny, but Benjy laughs when something's actually funny.
