    I hate him. He's as funny as a cancer ward.

    Cockroach refuses to die, even after all his tv deals get canned.

    Ugh.

    I LOVED his broadway show. I laughed the entire time. :cwl:

    Are you from NY? A lot of the out of towners didn't laugh too much. I think he is brilliant!

    Sorry, manhattan. I have never even gotten him.

    Saw him live a few months ago and he was horrid. Rich Voss, Bob Kelly really made him look like a chump.

    Did you see Long Story Short on HBO?

    Weird, I love his stuff and always have. Before the funny died, he was my favorite HSS guest behind Gilbert.

    I still watch old Tough Crowd episodes on YouTube when I have nothing to do.

    That being said, I totally get why some don't like him. I had an ex who tried to give him a chance on my urging, but she hated his delivery and didn't find him funny at all. She actually had a pretty good sense of humor too.

    i think there was a total of 5 minutes i wasn't dying laughing at his Broadway show. I think a lot of it has to do with his Arab bit, that was so spot on and hilarious! but you'd have to be arab to know it. he summed up half my family in like 2 minutes.


    Example, i saw a cousin and said "hey, i like your scarf" she took it off her, put it on me and said "you like it, take it - it's yours!"

    i need to find a cousin with a nice car now :bigthink:

    Not being able to see that show (and The Book of Mormon) is one of the few things I regret about moving from NY. Well, that and the pizza.

    Everybody I know who saw it said it was hilarious. Unfortunately, I've yet to be able to find a boot.

    So because you're all on the south side of how I feel about Colin, I watched the first 14 minutes of his Broadway show. I laughed a few times, but i just could not bite.

    Go listen to Eddie Murphy RAW, anything before 1980 with Pryor, anything Carlin period, or some of Bill Hicks.

    I'm just the odd duck here, I guess.

    what you are talking about is on a different level altogether. those are classic shows, and pretty much unparalleled.

    But Long Story Short kills me, and I watch a bit of it whenever i need a laugh.

    They are, however, Colin has been around for so long (since the late 80's); he's had so long to actually become something but never EVER has. He's a second rate comedian, all his shows die a quick death, or live on because so many other funny people support him ( Tough Crowd was carried by the guests, 9 out of 10 times Colin was the only unfunny one in the room ).

    The way I don't like him, you'd think he shot my dog while fucking my sister in the ass in my car on Christmas eve.

    Schweet, had no idea. I stopped looking for it a while ago, had no idea about it being on HBO.

    Thanks!
